Steelers Gab 2017 Week 12 NFL Preview – Green Bay at Pittsburgh

They may be rolling, but there’s no doubt that there’s plenty of work still left for the 2017 Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s pretty much a given the team will own the AFC North, but this team wants a lot more, a bye week and home field so they can avoid Tom Brady in his house in late January.

That means Sunday night at Heinz Field there’s another chance to get closer to making that happen, as the team will take on a club they have some history with – the Green Bay Packers.

The Steelers and Packers played maybe the greatest game in the history of Heinz Field back in 2009 when the Steelers won on the final play of the game to top Green Bay on a TD pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Mike Wallace.

Then the two teams played in Super Bowl XLV, a game that again came down to the wire, but this time on the biggest stage, the Packers were good enough to top the Steelers and take home a championship.

Now there’s one major factor in this regular season matchup, that being Packers QB Aaron Rodgers being down for the count with a broken collarbone.

The Pack are 5-5, and playing very un-Packer like, such as last week then they were shutout by the Baltimore Ravens. Brett Hundley is doing what he can at QB, but the Steelers are not two touchdown favorites for nothing.

Here’s a look at some keys for the Steelers to get to 9-2 on the year in a prime time spotlight.

  1. The Steelers players are taking turns sucking on each play tonight! Eli Rogers, Artie Burns twice, Vince Williams, Jesse James, Justin Hunter, Martavis Bryant, Eli Rogers again, maurkice pouncey, and then Ben! Let’s see who can suck on the next play!

  2. By the way, this is typical for Tomlin teams to allow an absolutely putrid quarterback to make plays and look good because if you’re Vince Williams it’s perfectly okay to smash face masks with an opposing player right in front of the red because ya know, he and Tomlin will still be bros…and, if you’re Artie Burns it’s okay to follow the post disregarding g the deep half and ad lib as you go and then laugh about it on the sidelines because what’s tomlin gonna do…nothing!

  3. New England will come in here in December beat the piss out of us, effectively steal home field, beat us up in foxboro in January , end our season again and y’all be like, jay you’re such a downer!

  4. Packers coaches taking steelers coaches to the woodshed so far!

  5. Apparently Nobody coached the Steelers up against double moves. But why care, tomlins boys will still be his boys if they bite or not! Funny how this over inflated ego group tends to let shit quarterbacks beat them…lack of concentration! You can trace lack of concentration back to the head coach of ANY team! It Tomlin gets a pass because we’ll, he’s Tomlin Steelers should be killing this team but instead they playing catch up because they are so poorly disciplined!

  6. I’ll d line to know why ASSHEAD Tomlin never runs Connor to give bell a break! Also, they seemed to be moving the ball effectively with the no huddle and then have totally abandoned it! This offense seems so lack luster and lazy, seemingly relying either exclusively in Ben or exclusively in bell (I.e., they either run a bunch in a row or pass a bunch in a row as opposed to mixing it up)! Shame in this team for performing this way tonight win or lose!

  7. Hundley puts up 28 against us! Wow, smorgasbord for Brady! Oh garden wasn’t there and Ryan made of glass Shazier gets hurt whatever! Sad!

  8. Well, let’s see if captain interception can lead us down field for a winner!
