Here are the players the Steelers should be most thankful for that are on their roster this year.

While the Steelers Thanksgiving game may have been pushed to Tuesday, there is still plenty to be thankful for this year.

The team is 10-0 and in the driver seat of the AFC North. As well, there are plenty of players playing some of their best football for this team right now. As a fan, there are countless players that we should be thankful are donning the black and gold. While it was a hard list to make, here are the five Steelers I’m most thankful are on the roster right now.

Chris Boswell

Chris Boswell has been one of the best kickers since joining the Steelers in 2015. It’s hard to think back to what life was like before Boswell, but after Shaun Suisham’s career-ending injury, the Steelers had one of the worst kicking units. The Steelers gave Boswell a chance, and it has turned into one of the most successful kicking stints the team has seen.

Yes, Boswell suffered a bad year in 2018, but he has since rebounded and has returned to his previous form. This year, he has only missed one field goal and has looked sharp from all distances. He is almost automatic and has stabilized a unit that many other teams have struggled with. Boswell is one of the best in the business and having him on this unit should make any fan thankful.
