The Black and Gold are back! Pittsburgh’s 33-18 victory over the Browns solidifies their spot for first place in the division. It also earned them the top spot for this weeks rankings. Total dominance from the Big 3 of Steel Town. Big Ben threw for 257 yards, two touchdowns and a pick. Antonio Brown caught six passes for 74 yards and two touchdowns, while James Conner had 146 yards on 24 carries, also with two touchdowns.
The biggest change for Pittsburgh over these last 8 weeks has been the consistency of their defense and the strength of their offensive line. Roethlisberger was only sacked once against this top rated Cleveland front. Oh, and the Steeler’s defense recorded two sacks, an interception, and allowed only 237 total yards. Has this Steelers team finally hit their stride? We find out as their toughest test comes this Sunday, when they visit the rival Ravens.
