How Did Steelers Lose to the Chiefs, What Went Wrong?

The Steelers emphatically came back down to earth in Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs. In consecutive games, Pittsburgh received miraculous efforts by backup quarterbacks that turned fourth quarter deficits into dramatic victories. That would not be the case in Kansas City, as the Chiefs (2-5) made key plays on both offense...

Chiefs Topple Banged Up Steelers 23-13

No matter how Landry Jones fared in his first start for the Pittsburgh Steelers, there was a good chance Ben Roethlisberger would be back soon enough for it to be his last. Jones didn’t exactly do much to give coach Mike Tomlin a choice. The third-year pro threw for 209 yards and a touchdown Sunday, but Jones was also...

Landry Jones is Steelers Player of the Week

In the first game action of his career, Landry Jones sparked the offense in a win vs. Arizona. He was the last resort, and it sure felt exactly like that at the time. The Steelers offense was struggling to a degree that was both frightening and unprecedented in the Ben Roethlisberger era. Fifty-nine total net yards of offense...

James Harrison on Landry Jones: "He's our Quarterback Now."

If third-string quarterback Landry Jones’ second-half performance against the Cardinals didn’t convince you that he deserved the starting job while Ben Roethlisberger recovers from injury, maybe James Harrison can kindly nudge you in that direction.

Steelers Rally Behind Landry Jones to Stun the Cardinals

The wide receiver with the seemingly unlimited potential but serious baggage flipped in joy. The third-string quarterback who spent two-plus years having to defend his roster spot jumped into the arms of one of his offensive linemen. For Martavis Bryant, it was relief. For Landry Jones, it was validation. For the Pittsburgh...

Steelers Defense Riddled with Holes vs. Jaguars

Sweeping conclusions should be reserved for regular-season work, but it was hard to ignore all the open passing lanes for Blake Bortles Friday night in Jacksonville’s 23-21 preseason win. The Steelers should clean that up. Bortles completed 11 of 15 passes for 118 yards, which should have been at least 150 if Clay Harbor...

Landry Jones to Start the Hall of Fame Game vs. Vikings

There is no plan, per se, at least not in the traditional football sense. Nor was there any specific preparation for the opponent in Sunday’s Hall of Fame Game – the Minnesota Vikings. But that doesn’t mean Coach Mike Tomlin won’t walk into Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium with a specific expectation for what he wants to...
