It happened 5x this years against the super great #1 ranked defense (total yards only) we had. Half of the offenses on this list are deplorable.
You are holding the Bengals inability to stop Joe Montana 30 years ago in the superbowl against LeBeau? You know that Joe Montana was pretty good right?
Steelers defense held the historically prolific Cardinals passing attack to 23 points and got 7 back themselves- and who won that game?
You are seriously including the Steelers giving up 6 points to the Bengals as losing the game for the Steelers???
The Steelers held the Chiefs to 13 points.
The Titans were held to 16 (unless you seriously hold the defense accountable for not stopping the Titans on a 1 yard TD drive).
Ike Taylor was out for the Cowboys game and Lewis was hurt too. Enter Golden and Victorian against the 3rd best pass offense in the NFL.
Do you people even watch the games? There were just as many injuries on the defensive side of the ball as the offensive side of the ball. The difference is the Steelers finished 6th in points allowed and 22nd in points scored.
