Default Steelers last in turnover ratio

The Steelers have the best record in the AFC at 6-2 and are currently dead last in the entire NFL in turnover differential at -10. Next to the bottom is a tie at -8 between the Dolphins and Broncos.

Best in the league:

Lions +13
49ers +10
Bills +9
Packers +8

Wonder if any team has ever fared this well at the midway point of the season being dead last in this category.

beats me, but being #1 in overall defense and #4 in points allowed usually means you're winning more games than losing.

though it is somewhat of an anomaly to see dead last in turnover differential and being tied for best record in the conference

We need to improve in turnovers but the week 1 Ravens game is really distorting that. Not saying that we didn't put up a horrible performance in Week 1 but that game is what makes us look like we've been bad on turnovers when overall we've been more average than not. We do need more turnovers. Would be great to get seven on the Ravens and pay back the favor.

"The biggest concern for Pittsburgh continues to be takeaways. Pittsburgh became just the seventh team since 1940 to force 2 or fewer takeaways through the first four games of a season. By focing only 1 turnover in the four games since, Pittsburgh is truly in rarified air. No other team has ever forced as few as 3 turnovers through the first 8 games. In fact, no other team has ever failed to produce at least 4 turnovers in any 8 game stretch of a single regular season. Luckily for Pittsburgh, they are winning games despite the lack of turnover, which is no mean feat. Pittsburgh is only the 30th team to win 3 games in a single season without forcing a turnover and just the 43rd team to win 6 games in a season while forcing one or fewer turnovers."

That last sentence is confusing. So no one has ever done X, and yet the Steelers are the 43rd team to do X and win six games... or something like that. Do we have any actuaries on these boards who can explain that?

Besides, we have 4 forced fumbles and two interceptions, which certainly sucks, but it doesn't apply to any of the above.
