The Pittsburgh Steelers fell to 2-6 with their Sunday loss to the New England Patriots, and they did so in a rather ugly fashion. While the Steelers offense tried valiantly to keep their team in the game, the defense surrendered over 600 yards of offense and a franchise record 55 points.
Grades this week are a stark contrast. Some players were outstanding. Even against insurmountable odds, they never stopped playing and gave the Patriots all they wanted. Then, you have the group who comes and goes. And it’s really this inconsistency that is killing this team.
Even from one drive to the next, it was impossible to say how players would perform. And, of course, there is that bottom group, who consistently underwhelmed, with Sunday being no exception
So, with all that, here is the latest round of roster grades for this sinking ship.
