Who would have thought that the Pittsburgh Steelers would be sitting on a 4-2 record entering Week 8 considering the ups and downs we have seen so far? The bad news is that this team still has a negative point differential and one of the league's worst offenses, statistically. The good news is that are firmly in the driver's seat for a playoff spot at this point.
Things could potentially get significantly better in Week 8. With a Steelers win over the Jaguars and a Ravens upset loss today, Pittsburgh would advance to 5-2 on the season -- putting them a half-game up on Baltimore and elevating the Steelers to first place in the AFC North.
Mike Tomlin's team has won two straight games, and Pittsburgh is looking to build on their momentum following an impressive fourth-quarter performance against the Rams last week. Unfortunately for them, the Jaguars are one of the hottest teams in the league after winning four straight games. Doug Pederson's team is also undefeated on the road this year.
When it comes to the best experiences to catch the game, listening to the Steelers on the radio might not be your top choice. However, viewing restrictions and Sunday plans can sometimes get in the way. Here's how you can be sure to listen to today's game.
