Lions vs. Steelers: Takeaways from Pittsburgh's 37-27 Win over Detroit
Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

The Pittsburgh Steelers battled a driving rain, a 6-3 Detroit Lions team and a dreadful second quarter to pull out a 10-point win, 37-27. Pittsburgh came out in the second half and shut down the Lions offense, while cranking up the intensity in the passing game to the tune of a 17-0 second half.

This win makes the Steelers 4-2 over their last six games and right in the mix for the playoffs. No one would have guessed when this team went 0-4 in the first month of the season that they could climb back into it.

I'm not sure how many people gave the Steelers a shot against the Lions, but it was clear the Steelers didn't listen to all the critics. So, here are some takeaways from Sunday's big win.
