Steelers D Pitches Red Zone Shutout; Smith-Schuster’s Big TD Lifts Pittsburgh to 20-15 Win Over Lions

The Steelers certainly didn’t make their Sunday night showdown with the Detroit Lions at Ford Field easy, but thanks to a couple goal line stands that you had to see to believe, the black and gold are 6-2 with a 20-15 win.

Matthew Stafford carved up the Steelers D like a Thanksgiving turkey, but despite Detroit getting 18 snaps inside the 20, the Steelers D stopped the Lions each and every time and, thanks to that walked away with a win.

JuJu Smith-Schuster was the hero on offense, and he’s making Martavis Bryant look like an afterthought, as he caught seven passes including a huge 97-yard catch-and-run in the third quarter that put the Steelers ahead for good 20-12.

It’s a great feeling to win a game when you don’t play your best, and the Steelers did that Sunday evening, and will now get a chance to get a rest before they play five of their next seven games at home.

Here’s three takeaways from the win on Sunday night.

    If someone had told me at the start of the season that the Steelers would be 6 – 2 and have a two game lead in the division with five of the next seven games in Heinz field at the mid way point of the season I would have jumped for joy . Guess what , today thats where the Steelers are at . Last nights game against the Lions wasnt a masterpiece by any means but they got the job done and at the end of the day thats all that matters . Ben can use the week off to rest , clear his mind and come back the following week with a good strong week of practice . Ben hasnt been at the top of his game the first half of the season and it showed again against the Lions . Missing wide open receivers is not Ben Roethlisberger and for some reason he doesnt look sharp . Is it age , is it a lack of focus , or is his heart simply not in it anymore ? Only he can answer those questions . At the end of the day the week off will do him and the team alot of good and will allow them to come back at full strength for the stretch run . Enjoy the week off boys , you earned it .
