For just the third time this season, Pittsburgh Steelers fans got to celebrate a victory. This one might’ve been the most gratifying, though, if for no other reason than that it reassured fans their team hasn’t given up.
As per usual, there were some missteps from Mike Tomlin’s squad. Ben Roethlisberger’s interception and the four sacks allowed stand out. But, nonetheless, this was quite possibly Pittsburgh’s most complete outing to date.
While that fact alone points to how poor the quality of play has been in Pittsburgh this season, it also means that fans needn’t yet throw in the terrible towel. After all, last year’s Redskins went from 3-6 to division winners after rattling off seven straight wins.
While predicting such a fate for this year’s Steelers seems far-fetched, it’s not yet out of the question in a tumultuous AFC North. The Steelers currently sit a game back from second place in the North and still have four divisional contests to play.
Whether or not the Steelers can stack wins and remain in contention remains to be seen, but fans can take solace in the fact that their team remains relevant, even in the loosest sense of the term, for at least another week. Read on the see the critical takeaways from the Steelers’ Week 10 victory over the Bills.
