The Steelers On A Winning Streak?

Because of Shaun Suisham and Le'Veon Bell the Steelers are on a winning streak
      The 1-4 PittsburghSteelers finally stopped the bleeding last week with a victory over the 3-3 New York Jets. More importantly, they turned the tide and stopped beating themselves with penalties and turnovers. Every week seems to be a new challenge for this Steelers team. The  Pittsburgh Steelers had their backs against the wall on Sunday and played like it. In the end, it wasn't the prettiest game, but the Steelers held on to get a 19-16 victory over their AFC North rivals, the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens dropped to 3-4 and they are below 500 in the first 7 games since John Harbaugh took over as head coach. The Streelers are now 2-4  and the whole team seems to sense a turn-around coming.

      The Pittsburgh Steelers have won two straight games after losing the first 4.  This week they beat their divisional rivals, the Baltimore Ravens, 19-16 in dramatic fashion. Shaun Suisham kicked the game-winning field goal in the final seconds to put the Steelers over the Ravens. Suisham just might be the team’s MVP so far this season unless someone on the offense breaks out. The Steelers will hit the road to face the Oakland Raiders to keep ir wining streak in alive. The Steelers need to just keep winning to increase their chance of a playoff berth and hope the Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns and the Ravens start losing more.

      Steelers came into yesterday's game with the second worst average in the NFL for rushing yard per game at 61 yards per, but got a strong effort from rookie running back Le'Veon Bell to put up 141 total rushing yards in the game. That's more than double their season average coming into the game and it was a big factor for the Steelers in their win. They were able to keep Joe Flacco and the Baltimore offense off the feild. Bell outran the average himself, as he carried the ball 19 times for 93 yards, even though he didn't score a touchdown, his play could have been the most important of any player in the win. Pittsburgh averaged 4.9 yards per carry in the. That's the best they've run so far this season.
