Pittsburgh Steelers (1-1) find themselves in second place despite an ugly victory

Pittsburgh was able to win the football game despite nearly zero offense on their part. The defense was able to cause enough turnovers that resulted in enough points to drag their useless offense into victory. Matt Canada deserves most of the blame, but this offense that he has in front of him deserves just as much of the blame too.

The offensive line is putrid, even the interior that was billed as the next great thing. Perhaps they are still figuring things out, but there is only one new starter so that excuse is growing weary. Kenny Pickett is one of, if not the top issue on offense. He has regressed from last year and is someone that should get replaced as the starter during the offseason if this trend keeps up.

T.J. Watt and Alex Highsmith are the sole reason that this club was able to win the game. It was one of the ugliest performances that led to victory, besides those two showing up. The secondary is terrible, and the defensive line could not stop the rushing attack by an opposing offense if their lives depended on it.

Luckily, they have a shot to win this week since they take on the Las Vegas Raiders. They are not a great team either, but they will be able to move the ball on this terrible secondary that the black and gold employ. This is a winnable game, but if things don't change in a hurry in Pittsburgh than this club is not going very far this year.
