10/10/14 - The Pittsburgh Steelers earned their third win of the season when they took out the Jacksonville Jaguars last Sunday. The 17-9 victory showed fans what the team is made of and included a touchdown scored by Brice McCain after intercepting a pass from Blake Bortles and returning it 22 yards. Although some thought the game would be an easy win (after all, the Jaguars are now 0-5 this season), Jacksonville held on throughout the game and this interception helped relieve some of the pressure the Steelers were facing. This Sunday, the Steelers will be facing the Browns (2-2) in Cleveland in a game that looks like it could be a nail-biter. If Steelers fans can't make their way to Ohio, they should try to score some tickets for the next home game on Oct. 20!
10/1/14 – The Steelers are on the road this week, heading to Jacksonville to play the Jaguars Week 5. Pittsburgh has won the last two meetings between the teams including their most recent on Oct. 16, 2011 at Heinz Field. The black and yellow are 2-2 on the season following a Sunday loss at home to the Bucs. Can Mike Tomlin get his team back on track?
9/29/14 - The Pittsburgh Steelers, banged up on the defensive side of the ball, were unable to hold a lead this past weekend, falling 27-24 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Though it seemed as though the Steelers were well on their way to a good 3-1 start, but 13 penalties proved to be too many for Pittsburgh. Ben Roethlisberger completed 29 of 40 passes for 314 yards and three scores, but was also sacked five times by a Tampa defense which had been torched by Atlanta just a week ago in one of the worst defeats in league history. LeVeon Bell collected 63 yards on 19 carries for the Steelers; Antonio Brown had seven receptions for 131 yards and two Steeler TDs, while Heath Miller caught 10 balls for 85 yards and one score.
9/23/14 - Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers dispatched Carolina last weekend, 37-19, it was a costly victory for the Steelers defense, who lost three players to injuries during the game. The worst of these was to cornerback Ike Taylor, who fractured his forearm in a collision with a teammate while making a tackle. Linebackers Ryan Shazier and Jarvis Jones were also knocked out by injuries; while Shazier’s sprained medial collateral ligament will force him to miss one game, Jones’s wrist injury forced the Steelers to put him on the injured reserve/designated to return list, meaning an absence of at least eight weeks. In the interim, the Steelers coaxed linebacker James Harrison out of retirement and signed him to a one-year deal.
9/16/14 - The shadow of released Baltimore running back Ray Rice loomed over the game between the Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers – but the Steelers acted like they were the team most affected, falling to an inspired group of Ravens 26-6 last Thursday night. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 217 yards on 22-of-37 passing, but also had an interception and was sacked twice by the Ravens. Le’Veon Bell had 16 touches for the Steelers – 11 rushes for 59 yards, and five receptions for another 48 yards, but the sum of the Steelers’ offensive production that made the scoreboard was a pair of Shaun Suisham field goals, from 25 and 43 yards. Coming up for the Steelers in Week 3 is a trip to Charlotte and a Sunday night date with the 2-0 Carolina Panthers.
9/8/14 - This weekend’s Pittsburgh Steelers opener against the rival Cleveland Browns could best be described as a tale of two halves, as the Steelers ran out to a 24-point lead in the first half before the Browns spent the second half catching up; but the Steelers ultimately won on a last-second 41 yard field goal by Shawn Suisham, 30-27. Big Ben Roethlisberger was solid, completing 23 of his 34 attempts for a game-high 365 yards, a touchdown and a pick; his favorite target for the day was Antonio Brown, who reeled in 5 balls for 116 yards and a touchdown, while Markus Wheaton caught two key passes on the fateful game-ending Steelers drive among his six catches. However, Browns signal-caller Brian Hoyer may have solidified his grasp on the top slot on the depth chart after holding off a fairly strong challenge by rookie phenom Johnny Manziel. Hoyer finished 19 for 31 for 230 yards and a touchdown, most of which came in the second half. Cleveland’s Andrew Hawkins was his squad’s top receiver, with eight catches for 87 yards.
9/3/14 - While the Pittsburgh Steelers defense held visiting Carolina to only 10 points, they were the only points scored in the game by wither team, as the Panthers sent the Steelers to their third defeat in four preseason games, 10-0. Rookie Landry Jones was at the controls of the Steeler offense, passing for 97 yards on 14 of 18 throws, but was sacked three times by the Carolina defense; while some speculated whether or not the Steelers would carry three quarterbacks after a middling performance, the team did choose to keep Jones on the 53-man final roster going into the regular season, behind Ben Roethlisberger and Bruce Gradkowski.
8/26/14 - The legal and other problems faced by Pittsburgh Steelers running backs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount could very well open the door of opportunity for other running backs to feature in the Steelers’ offense when they open the season next month against Cleveland. Bell and Blount face discipline from the team and the league after being charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession from a routine traffic stop. Both backs played in the Steelers’ 31-21 loss to Philadelphia last weekend. Rookie running back Dri Archer, who could step up in the offense, had no rushes against the Eagles but caught three passes in four targeted plays, for 14 yards.
8/20/14 - In their 19-16 preseason win over Buffalo last weekend, the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive starters looked every bit ready for the regular season to get under way. Ben Roethlisberger directed the Steelers offense to two touchdowns in both of his offensive series, needing just two plays for the first score, a 76-yard scoring strike to Antonio Brown; and then hitting Markus Wheaton for a 16-yard touchdown in the next series. “Big Ben” ended up completing eight of 11 passes for 128 yards with no interceptions. Another player who had a great game was rookie linebacker Ryan Shazier, who set up Pittsburgh’s second score with an interception and 22 yard return, to the Buffalo 37 yard line. Shazier also finished with 11 tackles in the game – his first, after missing the preseason opener – in addition to the interception.
7/30/14 - Anyone who believes (or expects) that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger should get a contract extension will have to wait until after this season. Big Ben is signed through the 2015 season, and usually top quarterbacks are given a contract extension with two years left, but the Steelers are in the position of having a significant number of other deserving players entering the final years of their contract. Team president Art Rooney addressed the situation on the Steelers’ official website, saying, “I met with Ben shortly before we did the Maurice Pouncey signing just to make sure Ben understood where we were with our intentions.” Roethlisberger, for the most part, seemed to understand, telling the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, “As I put my faith and trust in themwhen the time is right, we’ll get it done.”
7/22/14 - Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is starting to feel some pressure. The Steelers have finished at 8-8 the last two seasons under Tomlin, and the team hasn’t had three straight non-winning seasons since the late Chuck Noll’s first three campaigns, in 1969, 1970 and 1971. Center Maurkice Pouncey told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review newspaper that the back to back .500 seasons have made Tomlin mad. Even though the Steelers won six of their final eight games last season, just missing out on a playoff berth, it was the 0-4 start – Pittsburgh’s first in 45 seasons – that really bothered him. Still, the coach who set a record as the youngest to win a Super Bowl has one goal at the end of each season: to not be one of those guys that becomes an ex-head coach.
7/16/14 - The Steelers.com website notes that defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau is already hard at work integrating the old and new into a cohesive unit. Five of the nine draft picks the Steelers had were defensive players, and the team signed three more defensive free agents during the offseason. LeBeau was especially taken with veteran linemen Mike Mitchell (“[A] real good quality player there,” said LeBeau) and Cam Thomas, who impressed LeBeau with the quickness he had for his size. LeBeau also noted that the team needed to address some speed in the unit – “(Y)ou can never have too much speed,” he said, while mentioning Ryan Shazier as one of the key draft picks.
7/8/14 - He’s a third round draftee from a mid-major program (based, incidentally, in a suburb of the city that is home to the team’s top rival). But the Pittsburgh Steelers have plans for speedy tailback Dri Archer, from Kent State University in Ohio. Even though the Steelers have existing depth at tailback in the guises of Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount, don’t be surprised if Archer makes some early noise in some way or another, whether it be situational – third down, or a shift out of the backfield – or via special teams. Fellow draftee Ryan Shazier, no slowpoke himself, said to the Akron Beacon Journal newspaper,. “He can catch, he can run, he even goes through the tackles sometimes.” Shazier also noted that Archer’s running style “helps you be able to read and tackle any other guy.”
7/1/14 - He spent three decades with the Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans franchise, as a player (guard), position coach (offensive line) and head coach, until being fired earlier this year. But the Titans’ loss is the Pittsburgh Steelers’ gain, and Munchak, a Hall of Famer, is enjoying the fresh start in the Steel City. While Munchak is the Steelers’ third offensive line coach in as many seasons, he inherits a solid offensive line centered by Maurkice Pouncey, and given his success as a lineman and position coach, expect the Steelers’ offensive line to grow rapidly. “I just think it’s exciting for all of us,” Munchak told ESPN.com. “They (the Steelers’ offensive linemen) are very excited about the opportunities.”
6/19/14 - The man responsible for laying the foundation of what the Steelers are today – an elite NFL squad and a perennial contender – passed away in his sleep at his suburban Pittsburgh home of Sewickley, Pa. on Friday. Chuck Noll, a Hall of Famer who legendary Pittsburgh broadcaster Myron Cope called “The Emperor,” was 82 at his passing, became the Steelers’ head coach in 1969 and within four years, had the team in the playoffs for the first time since 1947; Noll-coached teams would establish a level of legendary excellence on both sides of the ball, winning four of their six Super Bowl titles within a six year stretch (1974, 1975, 1978, 1979) in the middle and late Seventies. Noll built the Steelers almost from the ground up, selecting players like “Mean Joe” Greene, Terry Bradshaw, Franco Harris, Rocky Bleier, Lynn Swann, John Stallworth, Jack Lambert, Jack Ham, L.C. Greenwood, Mike Webster, Mel Blount, Tony Dungy and Donnie Shell – all of whom became household names throughout America, love ‘em or hate ‘em.
6/11/14 - Expect the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense to be considerably more fast-paced this season, at least according to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, as the team moves more towards a no-huddle offense. Big Ben told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review newspaper, “I don’t want to call it our base offense, but I think you’ll see more of it, so it was more important for us to get it in early and often.” Steelers receiver Lance Moore, formerly of New Orleans, spoke of the quickness in which the new offensive look was installed, “If you would’ve told me a month ago that we would be doing no-huddle on the fourth and fifth OTA, I would’ve said you are crazy.”
6/3/14 - Pittsburgh Steeelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is entering the final year of his current contract with the Black and Gold, and the nine year veteran would very much like to play his entire career for the Steelers. He is joined in that wish by team president Art Rooney II, who said in January that the Steelers are determined to make that happen – however, nothing has been said as of yet by either team or player regarding a new deal. There are only three active quarterbacks in the National Football League who are multiple Super Bowl winners: Tom Brady, Eli Manning, and Big Ben; and Roethlisberger would be a prime target for a significant contract should no resolution be made before the Steelers’ grudge-match season opener with Cleveland on September 7, as Steeler team policy precludes contract negotiations during the season.
5/28/14 - While the Pittsburgh Steelers have started signing their 2014 draft picks, some speculation is arising that a pair of former Steelers would like to return. Defensive stalwart James Harrison, a former NFL Defensive Player of the Year, and wideout Santonio Holmes, the hero of Super Bowl XLIII with his game-winning catch in the fourth quarter, were both said by cornerback Ike Taylor as wanting to come back to the Steelers. Holmes was recently released by the New York Jets, and Harrison was last with AFC North rival Cincinnati, but neither player has been contacted by Steeler team officials.
5/20/14 - It should be no surprise at all that a team recognized for its defensive prowess like the Pittsburgh Steelers chose a pair of highly rated defenders with their first two picks in the 2014 NFL Draft. In the first round, the Steelers grabbed Ohio State outside linebacker Ryan Shazier, a first team all-Big Ten and All-American selection after his junior season in 2013. Then, the Steelers then selected Notre Dame defensive end Stephon Tuitt in the second round; Tuitt is expected by many pundits to be able to play in both running and passing situations as a “five technique” defensive lineman. Diminutive Kent State running back Dri Archer was a surprising third round pick, but the Steelers have big plans for the player who had the fastest 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine, a speedy 4.26 seconds.
5/12/14 - The Pittsburgh Steelers were one of five teams in the NFL to pick up an "A" grade (ESPN) regarding their 2014 Draft picks. The Steelers nabbed some of the fastest prospects on the board, including LB Ryan Shazier, RB Dri Archer and WR Martavis Bryant. In the end, Pittsburgh picked up nine total players in the draft: four offensive and five defensive players, including 6'7" Daniel McCullers. Pittsburgh has bolstered both sides of the ball with quick and sizable talent—see this physically gifted squad charge into the big leagues with Pittsburgh Steelers tickets!
4/17/14 - Pittsburgh's new O-line coach and NFL-great, Mike Munchak, will try and whip his current linemen—all returning starters—back into shape by the time preseason kicks in. The Pittsburgh Steelers will open up exhibition play against the New York Giants during Week 1 and return home to host the Buffalo Bills in Week 2. They'll be on the road to take on the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3, and will close Week 4 at home opposite the Carolina Panthers on Aug 28. This will be the 12th consecutive year that the two faceoff in a preseason finale; Steelers tickets start at just $31 to get into this time-honored game.
2/11/14 – Pittsburgh’s defense is in dire need of some bluster in 2014 and are hoping recent hire (and former Steeler) Joey Porter (Colorado State) will give the team just that as a defensive assistant. Following back-to-back 8-8 seasons, the Pittsburgh Steelers have their sites on the postseason after a two year hiatus. A strong run at the end of 2013, has Steelers fans optimistic about their team especially given their relatively “easy” schedule. Can the defense come together as the offense had in the second half of the season last year?
12/23/13 - The Pittsburgh Steelers have kept playoff hopes alive, after holding off the Green Bay Packers in Sunday's 38-31 nail-biting victory. The win came off the back of Troy Polamalu, who forced a fumble to grant Le’Veon Bell the game-winning score with less than two minutes left, while the Steel Curtain stymied Green Bay's final drive. Though playoffs are within reach, the long shots must defeat the Cleveland Browns in Week 17, and hope that the Dolphins, Ravens and Chargers lose their respective games. Pittsburgh Steelers tickets are $31 to start and just $139 on average for their must-win matchup this Sunday.
12/16/13 - The Steelers tripped up division leaders, the Cincinnati Bengals, and kept their slight wildcard chances alive with a crucial 30-20 victory yesterday at Heinz Field. Antonio Brown was the player of the day, catching a TD pass and returning a punt for a score, which propelled the Steelers to a 24-point lead by halftime. Heading into Week 16, Pittsburgh must defeat the Green Bay Packers in order to shove off the Baltimore Ravens for the AFC wildcard hunt. Pittsburgh Steelers tickets are $197 on average for Sunday—or get in for $19 to see Ben Roethlisberger take on a healthy Aaron Rodgers at Lambeau Field.
12/9/13- The Pittsburgh Steelers suffered a disappointing 34-28 loss to the visiting Miami Dolphins on Sunday. In the last seconds of the game, the Steelers tried a wild final play featuring a number of laterals that drove Antonio Brown into the end zone, but the TD was ultimately called back as Brown was ruled out of bounds dooming them to defeat. Though Ben Roethlisberger is on his way to a career-best season, after breaking Terry Bradshaw’s franchise record for most TDs, Mike Tomlin and company are nearly eclipsed in the playoff run. Pittsburgh Steelers tickets are only $18 to get into Heinz Field when they are pitted against the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday.
12/2/13 - The Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the Baltimore Raven’s in Thanksgiving’s hard-fought game, falling short 20-22. Big Ben played fearlessly, hitting weapon Le’Veon Bell and four other receivers, though their necessary 2-point conversion with one minute left in the fourth quarter slipped right through Emmanuel Sanders’ hands, while an unsuccessful on-side kick by Shaun Suisham allowed the Ravens to run away victorious. Stay tuned: HC Mike Tomlin is in some hot water and will most likely be hit with a heavy fine after interfering with Jacoby Jones’ sideline run down the field on Thursday, intentional or not. Pittsburgh Steelers tickets are $144 on average when they travel to Miami to face the Dolphins.
11/26/13 - Steelers fans have a lot to feel good about: Pittsburgh has achieved their 3rd straight win and are officially in the AFC wildcard hunt. Ben Roethlisberger, with the help of his offensive line (who did not allow their QB to be sacked), led his team to 27-11 over the Cleveland Browns. The notorious Steelers defense forced 4 turnovers and took advantage of the Browns' troublesome QB situation. Next week, Pittsburgh will try to sweep the Baltimore Ravens for the first time since '08 on Thanksgiving Day. Pittsburgh Steelers tickets for the Turkey Day showdown are just $29 to get in!
11/18/13 - The Pittsburgh Steelers are on track to turn around their losing season with yesterday’s convincing defeat of the Detroit Lions, 37-27. Although Big Ben is palpably dissatisfied with the franchise, Roethlisberger played a great game, throwing 367 yards and 4 TDs. The Steel Curtain effectively shut down Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson in the second half of the game, allowing Roethlisberger’s 2 scoring passes with 5 minutes left in the 4th for the come-from-behind victory. In Week 12, Pittsburgh will travel to Ohio to meet the Cleveland Browns: tickets are $93 on average.
11/11/13 - The Steelers came away victorious Sunday morning, in a 23-10 rout of the Buffalo Bills at Heinz Field. Pittsburgh’s defense cleaned up and carried the team to 3-6 on the season, despite the highly anticipated comeback of Bill’s QB EJ Manuel, shutting down the opposition to 95 yards rushing and sacking Manuel three times. Roethlisberger finished with 204 yards and a touchdown, while Le’Veon Bell had 96 yards and one TD, making up for the team's embarrassing loss to the Patriots last week. The Steelers will host the Detroit Lions next Sunday, and tickets are moderately priced at $156 on average.
11/4/13 - In a high scoring game, the Steelers were crushed by the New England Patriots 31-55, the most points Pittsburgh has ever allowed in franchise history. Ben Roethlisberger also had a 400-yard passing day, but at 28 for 48 passes, it was not enough to rally for a win, especially when the less-than-dynamic Pittsburgh defense all but collapsed against Tom Brady and his targets. New England routed the Steelers defense, which allowed Brady to accrue 432 passing yards, and granted three Pats receivers over 100 yards each. The Steelers are now 2-6 as they head into Week 10 with a game against the Buffalo Bills next Sunday. Pittsburgh Steelers tickets are $28 to get in, and are $215 on average.
10/28/13 - The Pittsburgh Steelers were unable to clamp down on Terrelle Pryor and the Oakland Raiders, ultimately losing 18-21 on Sunday. Big Ben was able to complete 29 of 45 throws for 275 yards despite heavy pressure from the Raiders defense, but it was all in vain. Kicker Shaun Suisham missed two critical short field goals, and Roethlisberger was sacked five times and forced two turnovers in the second half. After falling behind early in the game, allowing Pryor to score the longest rushing touchdown in NFL history (93 yards), the Steelers made a rousing 15-point fourth quarter comeback, but the momentum fell short, leaving Pittsburgh at 2-5 on the season. The Steelers will be on the road to play worthy opponents, the New England Patriots in Week 9 at Gillette Stadium. Pittsburgh Steelers tickets are the most expensive of the week, at a lofty $468 on average and $135 at the lowest.
10/21/13 - The Pittsburgh Steelers defended their home field and squeaked by the Baltimore Ravens to claim Sunday’s victory, 19-16, and push the Ravens under the .500 mark. The win came from a momentous performance by Shaun Suisham and his game-deciding 42-yard field goal. Ben Roethlisberger was 17 of 23 for 160 yards, their running game was on point, outgaining the Ravens nearly 83 yards rushing, as rookie Le’Veon Bell ran for a season high 93 yards on 19 carries. Pittsburgh has successfully conducted two games, and will look to their third straight win to dig themselves out of their early season hole and be serious contenders in the AFC North. The Black and Gold will be opposite the Silver and Black, in Week 8 to face the Oakland Raiders at O.CO Colisseum in California. Pittsburgh Steelers tickets are averaging $174 on the road.
10/14/13 - Back from their bye, the Pittsburgh Steelers have finally surmounted their dreaded winless record, coming out on top in a crucial 19-6 victory over the New York Jets. Head coach Mike Tomlin, dissatisfied with the boys in black and yellow, took all the players’ games out of the locker room, a chastising move that proved useful. Pittsburgh was the only team in the NFL to have not forced a turnover coming into Week 6, but the Steelers made it happen with 2 picks on Geno Smith. Big Ben Roethlisberger threw a massive 55 yard touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders, his longest touchdown pass of the season, and the one they would need to secure the franchise’s 600th win, a play he was able to make with the help of his offensive line, who greatly improved on QB protection. A reinvigorated and freshly disciplined Pittsburgh will next host the Baltimore Ravens, hungry for a win post-loss to Green Bay. Pittsburgh Steelers tickets start at $40 and average $153.
10/8/13 - The Pittsburgh Steelers will be coming out of their bye week to play the New York Jets hot off their win over the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night. The 0-4 Steelers have a chance to improve their standings when veteran Big Ben goes head to head against rookie quarterback Geno Smith. With newly acquired left tackle Levi Brown from the Arizona Cardinals in tow, the Steelers may yet breathe new life as they head on the road to play the Jets in Week 6. Pittsburgh Steelers tickets on the road this week are $48 to get in and average $201.
9/30/13 - The Steelers are 0-4 for the first time since 1968, having lost to the Minnesota Vikings overseas in London on Sunday. Both teams were desperately looking to break their losing streak across the pond, and the Steelers reached a new low in front of a sold out crowd at Wembley Stadium, drowning in the Viking’s “purple rain.” Pittsburgh can’t seem to provide enough coverage for their quarterback, who was sacked five times on Sunday, and their defense was left in the dust by running back Adrian Peterson. Roethlisberger and company are on their bye week, and will be on the road again to play the New York Jets on October 13 in Week 6, hopefully with newly rejuvenated play. The average price for Steelers tickets has seen a 19% decrease since the beginning of the season falling from $233 to $188.
9/24/13 - Despite their Superbowl pedigree, the Steelers are now 0-3 coming into Week 4, and are in desperate for a win. Pittsburgh will gain a much needed offensive threat in rookie running back Le’Veon Bell, who was intended to start before a preseason injury. Set to play against the Minnesota Vikings, who are also short of wins this season, Roethlisberger will fight against accumulating more turn overs, and try to pull his team out of an uncharacteristic slump. Get into this game across the pond, at Wembley Stadium in London, for $72.
Pittsburgh Steelers 2014 Season
The Pittsburgh Steelers have a tough schedule, playing four of five games on the road starting in Week 2 with a visit to AFC North Division rivals, Baltimore Ravens. The Thursday night game will be the first time Mike Tomlin returns to the site in which he stepped in the way of Jacoby Jones during a kickoff return last year, interfering with a potential touchdown. Pittsburgh opens the season at Heinz Field for the second consecutive year, hosting division rival, the Cleveland Browns mid-day (get-in $110). Two other must-attend games at home are Week 8 vs. the Colts (min. $102) in a Big Ben/Andrew Luck showdown and Week 13 vs. the scheming Saints (min. $113).
Last season, the Pittsburgh Steelers struggled to just their fourth third-place finish since the turn of the century (other seasons being 2003, 2006, and 2009, making for an intriguing three year cycle). Steeler fans have to be hoping the pattern repeats itself again in 2013, as each season following a third place finish saw the Steelers atop the AFC’s North Division – with 2010’s squad advancing to the Super Bowl, where they lost to the Green Bay Packers.
Big Ben Roethlisberger is feeling good after an offseason which saw him undergo knee surgery; he threw strongly during the Steelers’ last day of OTAs. While leading receiver Mike Wallace decamped for sunnier climes in Miami, longtime star Plaxico Burress returns to Steeltown, joining fellow tight end Heath Miller as prime targets; while running backs Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman will have some company in training camp in the presence of former Michigan State standout Le’Veon Bell, a second round selection in this spring’s draft
However as always, it’s the defense, the vaunted Steel Curtain, where Pittsburgh remains strongest – first overall in fewest passing yards allowed per game, second leaguewide in fewest rushing yards allowed per game. The Steelers achieved this with minimal input from safety Troy Polamalu, who spent much of 2012 injured, only playing in seven of 16 games. The Steel Curtain also features linebackers Lawrence Timmons (who had 6.0 sacks, and led the team in interceptions with three) and Larry Foote.
All in all, Terrible Towels should be waving at Heinz Field throughout 2013! What games on the Pittsburgh Steelers schedule are Steeler Nation most excited about this season? Two of the most anticipated Steelers games will feature division rivals, the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens. Both the Bengals and Ravens represented the AFC North in the NFL Playoffs last season, with Baltimore winning the Super Bowl. Ravens vs. Steelers tickets on October 20th start at $122 in the end zone and reach $1,015 for seats between the 40 and 50-yard lines on the Steelers sideline. Pittsburgh football fans wanting to see a great game at a lower price will find cheap Steelers tickets when the Bengals come to town in December. Although a key game, the get-in price for Bengals vs. Steelers ticket is $80, 34% less than Ravens vs. Steelers.
