This. The Steelers have surpassed 30 points once, in a loss to Oakland when they scored 31. This team doesn't force turnovers and any field position gained by special teams is quickly returned in the form of a penalty.
The result is that the offense is always driving on long fields, and it's an offense that doesn't make many big plays.
I wouldn't be surprised to see the Steelers win tonight, 24-13, scoring a late TD to put away a team that should lose 42-0.
