3 things that went wrong for the Steelers during their bye week
Ravens and Browns showing why they could give the Steelers headaches this year
It’s bad enough that the Ravens both won on Sunday, but should these teams give up a legitimate cause for concern? We already assumed that Baltimore would be a really good team in 2020. Though they didn’t blow out Washington by as much as they could have, the result was the same.
Cleveland, on the other hand, looked impressive. Yes, the Cowboys climbed back into the game halfway through the fourth quarter after the Browns had a 41-14 lead, but Clevland was in control of that game from the start.
It’s hard to say exactly how much of that was due to Baker Mayfield and an emerging Browns offense, or if it was simply the result of a pathetic defensive performance by the Cowboys. Either way, the Steelers certainly can’t afford to take the Browns lightly two weeks from now. Now 3-1 to start the season, perhaps this is the year that Cleveland finally lives up to expectations.
We are still very early in the NFL season and as long as the Steelers keep taking care of business, they won’t need to be concerned with how other teams are doing. However, you can bet that Pittsburgh’s players and coaches watching from home on Sunday weren’t big fans of the outcomes in Week 4.
