will take the field together. It has been three hundred-seven days since they’ve been on the field together. Want to take a guess who they played in that game?

It was 12/28/2014 and the Steelers beat the Cincinnati Bengals in the regular-season finale to clinch the AFC North division title.

Here’s the story of how it all began.

Problems against tight ends

Chris Adamski of the Trib examined the stats to see if the Steelers’ problems when facing some of the NFL’s premier tight ends is a big of a problem as it looks to be.

The three touchdowns Gronkowski caught against the Steelers were obviously the biggest glaring issue but it’s pretty clear that with the Patriots it’s a pick-your-poison scenario going up against their offense. Hopefully this means the Steelers can control the Bengals’ Tyler Eifert.
