Late in the third quarter of this weekend’s loss to the Steelers, Alex Smith escaped third-down pressure and hit Kareem Hunt for a big gain before being brought down after the play by Steelers safety Mike Mitchell. Mitchell was flagged for roughing the passer, and Smith got in his face immediately after being brought…
Sure, it took an enormous fluke, but the schizophrenic Steelers topped the previously unbeaten Chiefs and are right back in the thick of the AFC chase. They’re there without much success from No. 2 receiver Martavis Bryant, and his frustrations have reached the point where he’s requested a trade.
Check out the still image above: Steelers receiver Antonio Brown is at about the Chiefs’ 35-yard line and is flanked by two defenders. Kansas City cornerback Phillip Gaines has just tipped the pass; safety Daniel Sorensen is there to make the tackle. And yet, Brown scored a 51-yard TD.
The Steelers had their doors blown off by the Jaguars on Sunday, with Ben Roethlisberger throwing five picks. Pittsburgh is still 3-2 and tied for first in the AFC North, but Big Ben has been especially cranky lately.
The 3-2 Jaguars have already matched their win total from all of last season, after humiliating Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers today. Big Ben had an abysmal game against Jacksonville’s defense as he threw five picks for the first time ever in a 30-9 loss. Here are four of them.
The baseball soared into the early-morning blackness, heading toward the left-field foul pole. Tracking the flight of the ball he’d just hit, Carlton Fisk began to frantically flap his arms in an effort to will it fair.
Steelers offensive lineman and former Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva, who stood for the national anthem before Sunday’s game even though head coach Mike Tomlin had stated all his players would stay in the locker room to avoid making any sort of statement, said Monday that he deeply regrets how his action was…
After the Pittsburgh Steelers stayed in the locker room for the national anthem before their game on Sunday, a Pennsylvania fire chief wrote on Facebook that “[head coach Mike] Tomlin just added himself to the list of no good niggers. Yes I said it.”
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said in a pregame interview with CBS that his team will not be on the field during the national anthem, in what he says is a gesture of unity that eliminates the individual players’ decisions of whether to sit, kneel, or stand during the anthem.
The Steelers are enjoying themselves early against Minnesota, jumping out to an initial 14-0 lead against the Sam Bradford-less Vikings. They’re having so much fun, in fact, that they added another game to the mix after their touchdowns.
J.J. Watt has gotten a lot of well-deserved attention for both his on-and off-field actions over his career, but today, once the games began, it was one of his brothers who took over the spotlight.
Some people are fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers. But many, many more people are NOT fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers. This 2017 Deadspin NFL team preview is for those in the latter group. Read all the previews so far here.
Cleveland’s police union will refuse to participate in the raising of the flag during the national anthem ceremony at the Browns home opener, to protest Browns players kneeling during the national anthem.
The Steelers have been busy keeping their own and adding to their roster this offseason. Don’t think running back Le’Veon Bell hasn’t noticed.
A Pennsylvania woman was allegedly beaten up and shaved by her daughter and granddaughter Sunday because she reportedly turned up the radio for the preseason Steelers game too loudly.
Former NHL player Jeremy Roenick showed his ass by tweeting this on Monday:
Le’Veon Bell is making a big bet on himself. That kind of thing isn’t all that uncommon in the NFL, where contracts are not guaranteed, but Bell’s gamble is an attempt to transcend his position from a financial standpoint. The odds that he’ll succeed appear to be stacked against him.
The NFL’s franchise tag deadline came and went at 4 p.m. ET with no new contracts for Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins, Pittsburgh running back Le’Veon Bell, and Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson. If you’re wondering what that means for them and their teams, I can explain.
We’ve got a fresh batch of videos featuring James Harrison doing wild shit in order to stay beefy, and these clips feature him hurling a medicine ball over a volleyball net with his pals.
The Steelers placed the franchise tag on running back Le’Veon Bell, but Bell has yet to sign his tender and did not report for any of the team’s offseason program. That includes this week’s mandatory minicamp, which for Bell was actually not mandatory because he’s not officially under contract.
