Pittsburgh Steelers Betting

Regardless of the fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers failed to qualify for the playoffs a second straight season, 2019-20 was still a success for the franchise. It’s rare that a Hall of Fame quarterback is lost early in the year and the team still goes on to compete in the second season; that is unless you’re the New England Patriots. Be that as it may, the Steelers battled back from a wretched 1-4 SU start yet still found itself in the thick of the AFC playoff chase entering Week 16. And it did so without the services of Ben Roethlisberger, James Conner and JuJu Smith-Schuster for a bulk of the season. Guys like Devlin Hodges, Diontae Johnson and Minkah Fitzpatrick helped keep the Steel City’s hopes alive, but the team was running on empty at the tail end of the season and just came up short.

Season Recap

Pittsburgh took the field in New England for the season opener owners of a 9-game season win total; the same amount of game’s won the previous season. It went on to get trounced in that game 33-3 and followed it up with a home loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Then it went on the road and nearly upset the San Francisco 49ers as 6-point underdogs. So, the Steelers started the year 0-3 but all three losses came against teams that would eventually qualify for the playoffs. Mike Tomlin’s troops finally logged their first win in Week 4 at home against Cincinnati, but then went on to drop its fourth game of the season in overtime to the eventual AFC North champion Baltimore Ravens; that made it four of five opponents in the playoffs.

Thankfully, the schedule opened up from there with games set to go against the Chargers, Dolphins, Colts, Rams, Browns, Bengals, Browns, and Cardinals. They went on to win all but one of those games to propel themselves back into both the divisional and AFC playoff chases. The lone defeat was however of the memorable variety due to the ruckus that ensued when Miles Garrett ripped Mason Rudolph’s helmet off his head and proceeded to swing it at him causing both sidelines to clear and suspensions to rain down immediately after. Due to ineffectiveness, Rudolph lost his job to “Duck” Hodges but the Samford product was simply unable to tote the mail. Pittsburgh would go on to drop each of its last three games with the loss at the Jets in Week 16 more or less ending their season. When the dust cleared, Pittsburgh accrued an 8-8 record that saw it just come up short of surpassing linemakers expectations.

The Steelers were up against it dating all the way back to the second week of the season when Big Ben was lost for the year. Even so, Pittsburgh fought tooth and nail every passing week to remain relevant. The team only found itself in that position due to the defense which was the stone cold nuts ever since the trade was made to bring Fitzpatrick over from Jacksonville. His talent in the secondary immediately paid dividends, and the sack artist trio of T.J. Watt, Cameron Heyward and Bud Dupree made his job all the more easy. They combined for 35 total sacks to help lead the defense to 54 overall sacks which amounted to the most in the league. You have to think upper management makes a hard push to resign Dupree in hopes of bringing this threesome back to terrorize the league for years to come.

2020 Season Preview

While it’s been reported that Roethlisberger will be fully healed and ready to once again situate himself under center next season, the Steelers have to make a move to bring another capable field general into the Steel City; Hodges and Rudolph aren’t the answer from what was seen this past season. Pittsburgh’s wide receiver corps is simply too good to have noodle-armed turnover prone quarterbacks trying to get them the ball! GM Kevin Colbert might also want to think about making a push for another stud RB1 be it in the draft or via free agency. As good as Conner is, the dude can’t stay healthy. He was in and out of the lineup all season a year removed from seeing his prior campaign come to an abrupt end due to a knee injury. Benny Snell Jr. certainly looked capable in his absence, but I’m not sure he’s built to run the ball between the tackles for a full 16 games or more. How great would it be if they stuck it to the Browns by inking Kareem Hunt to a multi-year deal in the offseason?!
