Ben Roethlisberger’s Pittsburgh Steelers won more games by one score or less than any other NFL team last season. Teams that win most of their games by one score or less typically do not win as many games the following season. Guide to watch NFL football Pittsburgh Steelers live stream online, news, rankings, photos, more on NFL TV Pass.
Throw in a nasty travel schedule and improved division foes, and you have to wonder if Roethlisberger will be contemplating retirement again soon.
All the Killer B’s are a year older and more beat up. Their defense lost some key players. None of that will keep the Steelers from returning to the playoffs or winning the AFC North title. But rolling into the postseason with 12-13 victories isn’t likely.
This is how we see the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2018 season unfolding, game-by-game:
Week 1: Steelers (0-0) at Browns (0-0)
Cleveland had a very good offseason. They improved almost every aspect of their game. Tyrod Taylor gives them a quarterback with experience and a chip on his shoulder. They can taste their first win.
Pittsburgh struggled in Cleveland last season before pulling out a win. Pittsburgh’s travel schedule and the Browns’ improvements haven’t kicked in enough to deny the Steelers a victory just yet. (Steelers 18-17)
Week 2: Chiefs (0-1) at Steelers (1-0)
Pat Mahomes leads the Chiefs to Pittsburgh to face Roethlisberger and company. Mahomes put up 25 points in a loss to the Chargers on opening day.
Roethlisberger and the offense do well against the Chiefs’ defense, but not as well as the Chiefs multi-faceted attack handles Pittsburgh’s. The young gun tops the division’s elder statesman. (Chiefs 28-24)
Week 3: Steelers (1-1) at Buccaneers (0-2)
Tampa Bay open their season against the Eagles and Saints before facing the Steelers in Week 3’s Monday Night Football matchup.
Pittsburgh might not be clicking on all cylinders, but Roethlisberger always does enough in prime time. Tampa Bay is left wondering why the schedule makers did this to them. (Steelers 19-12)
Week 4: Ravens (3-0) at Steelers (2-1)
Baltimore enters Week 4 in first place and facing a Steelers team coming off a Monday night game. But the Bills, Bengals, and Broncos aren’t exactly the Steelers.
It’s not a statement win, but Pittsburgh grabs a share of first with a solid game against the Ravens’ new passing attack. (Steelers 20-16)
Week 5: Falcons (1-3) at Steelers (3-1)
Atlanta lost to three playoff contending opponents (Philadelphia, Carolina, and New Orleans) before crushing the lesser Bengals in Week 4. The Steelers are another playoff contender.
Pittsburgh can bury the Falcons’ playoff hopes, butthe desperate visitors aren’t ready to let that happen. It’s a bad loss for Pittsburgh and a sign of things to come when the competition gets tougher later in the season. (Falcons 27-19)
Week 6: Steelers (3-2) at Bengals (0-5)
You know it’s going to be a long season when fans are calling for the head coach to be fired before Week 6. The Bengals will make a lot of teams feel better about themselves as the season goes on.
That includes the Steelers after a Week 6 shellacking. (Steelers 25-7)
Week 7: The Steelers are on their bye week.
Week 8: Browns (3-4) at the Steelers (4-2)
You read that right. It’s Week 8 and the Browns already won three games. It’s good to have a last-place schedule.
After their near-miss in Week 1 and feeling fresh off their bye week, the Steelers play the Browns as if they were in the Super Bowl. Pittsburgh hopes their decisive victory sets the tone for the rest of the season. (Steelers 30-13)
Week 9: Steelers (5-2) at Ravens (3-5)
When these two teams last met, Baltimore had won three in a row. They have not won since, dropping five straight to this point.
Pittsburgh comes into Baltimore feeling good about the way their season is going. But the Ravens hold a team meeting during the week. That doesn’t bode well for the Steelers in Week 9. Baltimore’s defense stifles Big Ben in an ugly game. (Ravens 21-13)
Week 10: Panthers (7-1) at Steelers (5-3)
Carolina is rolling through the NFC North on the strength of their defense and the running of CJ Anderson. They thunder into Pittsburgh for a Thursday Night Football game to find the Steelers reeling from the abuse incurred by the Ravens’ defense.
This is a true test of Pittsburgh’s’ stamina and resilience. The Steelers’ defense holds up well, but Ben is powerless against another defensive onslaught. (Panthers 16-10)
Week 11: Steelers (5-4) at Jaguars (6-3)
Jacksonville is winning games, but not in the convincing fashion they did last season. Maybe playing at home in a nationally televised Sunday night game will bring back their swagger.
Pittsburgh knows they have to right the ship quickly. A big win over a playoff contender like Jacksonville would calm the fans back home who are wondering what’s wrong with the offense.
Steelers coaches dial up a heavy dose of Le’Veon Bell. He keeps things close, but swagger wins out over desperation. Pittsburgh drops to 5-5. (Jaguars 28-24)
Week 12: Steelers (5-5) at Broncos (4-6)
Case Keenum is feeling the wrath after discovering he can’t carry the team without a rushing attack. Watching CJ Anderson run for 100 yards every week for the Panthers isn’t soothing the crowds in Denver.
Pittsburgh’s defense knows an opportunity when it sees one. They harass Keenum all day long and give Roethlisberger a short field to negotiate in a solid victory. (Steelers 20-12)
Week 13: Chargers (8-3) at Steelers (6-5)
Philip Rivers is having a big season as the Chargers threaten to run away with the AFC West. But can they handle a cross-country trip for an early game?
The Steelers’ defense talks tough, but the multi-faceted attack of Los Angeles keeps them guessing all day. Roethlisberger has his best game in weeks, but it’s Rivers who scores last and drops Pittsburgh back to .500. (Chargers 27-24)
Week 14: Steelers (6-6) at Raiders (5-7)
Oakland has had its ups and downs and enter Week 14 on a three-game losing streak. But new/old head coach, John Gruden, has won both his previous nationally-televised contests. He has the Raiders looking forward to this Sunday night matchup.
Big Ben is looking forward to getting back on the field, too. Last week’s losing effort left a bad taste in his mouth. The Raiders’ defense provides a good rinse. (Steelers 21-18)
Week 15: Patriots (10-3) at Steelers (7-6)
Tom Brady and company have won four straight. That includes three since Brady announced the Patriots would run the table and capture the home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Pittsburgh’s defense knows exactly how to keep Brady from talking any more. They also know how to keep him from throwing or running away. The Patriots’ winning streak ends in a blizzard of quarterback sacks and hits that will keep on hurting the Patriots over the final two weeks. (Steelers 17-13)
Week 16: Steelers (8-6) at Saints (9-5)
New Orleans finds itself in a three-way dogfight for the NFC South title. With a season-ending tilt against the Panthers coming up, they can’t afford to slip up against the Steelers at home.
Pittsburgh’s defense might be exhausted after the Patriots, but Drew Brees and the Saints’ multi-pronged attack show no mercy. (Saints 31-17)
Week 17: Bengals (3-12) at Steelers (8-7)
Listening to the angst of Pittsburgh fans everywhere, you would think the Steelers were going to miss the playoffs. But they already clinched the AFC North title. A victory at home against the lifeless Bengals gives them the title outright.
Even if they lose, they own the fourth tiebreaker against the Ravens and will go on to host a wild-card game. No chance that scenario presents itself. Pittsburgh puts a cap on the Marvin Lewis era. (Steelers 28-3)
What happens next?
Pittsburgh hosts the 10-6 Chiefs in a wild-card game. Pittsburgh fans expect more than that from their Steelers. Management has some decisions to make, including how to best get their 2018 draft pick, quarterback Mason Rudolph, up to snuff for 2019.
