Can the Steelers do it again? Be beaten by a winless team?

first_imgCELEBRATION—Antonio Brown celebrates after one of his 7 catches. He was flagged for one of 13 penalties against the Steelers for 125 yards. (AP photo)The Steelers were upset by one of the worst teams in the NFL and hopefully it will not be deja vu when they once again face a winless team this weekend.After playing without a doubt their greatest game of the season against the Carolina Panthers, the Steelers laid an egg against the then winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers last weekend.The Bucs under the leadership of new coach Lovie Smith, who took the Chicago Bears to the Super Bowl, only to be fired a few years later after a 10-6 season, is in his first season with the Bucs after sitting out a year.The Bucs also had a new quarterback in Mike Glennon who was supposed to be the face of the future but with the injury to the starter he was forced into action and probably will be the starting quarterback from now on.The Steelers defense held the Bucs in check the first half allowing only 64 total yards but the offense was only able to build a 17-10 lead.last_img read more
