5 things we learned from the Steelers victory over the Rams
By Edward Hunt
The Steelers won their fourth game in a row against a good Rams team. An interception by Minkah Fitzpatrick iced it at the end.
The Steelers won their fourth game in a row and move up to 5-4. They have their first winning record of the season and are in the thick of things in the wild card race.
If the playoffs were to start today, the Steelers would be in the playoffs and the sixth seed. They are tied record-wise with the Oakland Raiders and the Indianapolis Colts who they beat a week ago.
This team is winning and the credit goes to the defense. They are firing on all cylinders and a lot of the credit goes to Cameron Heyward, TJ Watt, and Minkah Fitzpatrick. I also like the improvement of Bud Dupree and the consistency from Steven Nelson. This is like the Steelers of old.
The offense is doing enough to win games. Although it is not showing up in the stats sheet, Mason Rudolph is improving each game and is becoming a game manager. Mike Tomlin is also taking charge of the playcalling and I am impressed with that aspect of the game.
I want to answer the five burning questions from before the game to see the progress of this team.
