Somehow the Steelers were able to win and sit on top of the AFC North standings

No one expected the Steelers to win last week, in fact, very few predicted that outcome. One thing that most knew was that Pittsburgh would likely keep it close after being destroyed by the Texans just a week prior. Not to take anything away from the black and gold because they did win, but they did get some help from the other side of the ball.

It seemed like a game that neither side wanted to play in, let alone win. Both offenses struggled to score points, even though the Ravens were able to move the ball up and down the field for a lot of the game. Kenny Pickett and company struggled again in a Matt Canada offense that has still hindered this club. There are still a lot of issues on this team.

If it wasn't for Baltimore bailing out a couple of mistakes by the Steelers, then this could have been a totally different outcome. But give credit where credit is due as Pittsburgh's defense were able to be opportunistic and make stops one way or another. They also helped create enough splash to set up the offense in winnable situations.

The dark spot on this team continues to be their offense as it nearly puts the fans both in attendance and watching on TV to sleep. Something needs to be changed and that has to be the offensive coordinator, Matt Canada. That alteration likely won't happen after a win into the bye week, but it is something Mike Tomlin will have to live with if his decision backfires on him.

Next. 4 trades the Steelers could consider before the deadline. 4 trades the Steelers could consider before the deadline. dark
