Steelers Don’t Exactly Earn Style Points, But Do Enough to Top Packers 31-28 to Move to 9-2

3. Winning in Spite Of Yourself

I can’t state enough how winning a game like this is not easy when you give a scrappy team with nothing to lose a chance, a couple of leads, and turnovers.

The Steelers did all of that, giving the Packers the ball three times, and also making life tough as they allowed Green Bay to build an 8-point lead at one point.

This team is 9-2, and the biggest news is they stay ahead of the Ravens by no less than three games in the AFC North, and they keep a four-game lead on Cincinnati.

It’s not a secret (as I saw on Twitter often during the game) that the Steelers can’t beat a quality team like the Pats playing like they did Sunday night, but there’s also a thought they played down to the competition, playing a team they don’t see very often.

Before you start blasting them for all the things that didn’t go the Steelers way, let’s hope this was a hiccup, similar to what happened in Indianapolis, but just like that night, they got a win, and that’s the biggest number on the night.

    As the article says , no style points in this one , but a great win none the less. 9-2 , first place and tied for the best record in the NFL . I’ll take that anyday . The defense has to get the back end fixed and quickly . The Joe Haden injury is something thats going to haunt this team if it lingers through the end of the year . In the meantime , keep doing what youre doing and take them one at a time .
