What the Steelers must do to defeat the Rams in week 10
Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good. After a wild finish against the Colts, the 4-4 Steelers host the defending NFC Champions in Heinz Field on Sunday.
Steelers’ Mike Tomlin summed it up best: it feels great to be 4-4. Who would’ve thought?
If you had told me the Steelers without Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell and Ben Roethlisberger would be sitting at 4-4… I would submit an NFL signature “random” drug test to you.
But… look at us. HEY… look at us…
Ole Adam chose a good year to decline because the ball finally bounced (or sailed) the Steelers way. It was a moment that saw me run into my yard, driveway, and road barefoot in celebration. It was a relief.
Now it’s time for Steelers Nation to gather its composure and prepare for probably the toughest opponent in the second half of the season: the LA Rams.
The Rams come off their bye week at 5-3 and look to give Aaron Donald a sweet homecoming. It will be Donald’s first game at Heinz Field since November 29th, 2013.
The Steelers are falling behind in the AFC North race, and all likelihood will have to run the table to even think about a playoff berth, let alone a division title.
The Rams are a much bigger test than the Colts. With all of the injuries the Steelers are facing, they will have to play another big-time game to get by.
This week we will take a look at what it will take to defeat the Rams and advance to 5-4…
