The Steelers are somehow still in second place for now despite their sinking ship

Everything looks to be working against the Steelers right now as they head into a big matchup in week five. They are coming off another humbling loss at the hands of the unpredictable Houston Texans. Not many thought they would beat Pittsburgh. They not only found a way to not only beat the Steelers but also embarrass them in the process.

This is the second loss this season that saw the Steelers get humiliated. The 49ers were the first to do it in week one and the Texans did it here. San Francisco's loss made sense but losing against a young team hindered with injuries by more than 20 points is inexcusable. Pittsburgh has an inconsistent team without the proper coaching to turn things around.

Not a lot of time to dwell on that loss as the black and gold get ready to take on the Ravens this week at home. Pittsburgh has their backs against the wall, especially after Kenny Pickett got injured this past week which means Mitch Trubisky will be the starter for the time being. There are no positives for the Steelers heading into this week.

It is going to take a new offensive game plan and their defense to stand tall and hold the opposition to no points to have a chance at winning. Lamar Jackson is playing good football right now and that should spell disaster for the Steelers. Do not expect a miraculous recovery by this team as they look like a ship taking on water at a rapid pace.
