    By: KDKA-TV News Staff NASHVILLE (KDKA) – The NFL has announced the Steelers week four matchup with the Titans will be rescheduled for “later this season.” The game was postponed after it was learned that players and staff on the Tennessee Titans had tested positive for coronavirus. Originally, it was believed the game would be played on Monday or Tuesday, but as of Thursday morning, the NFL made the decision to push the game back to later in the season. A decision will be made “shortly” on the new date, according to a statement by the NFL.
    JuJu Smith-Schuster wants to reunite with Sam Darnold, but could Darnold really be Ben Roethlisberger’s successor? It’s not all his fault, with Adam Gase as his head coach and injuries thinning an already thin set of talent around him,. But Sam Darnold hasn’t looked good so far this season, as the New York Jets are the most dismal-looking of the NFL’s 0-3 teams. Ben Roethlisberger has looked fine through three games, after missing most of last season with an elbow injury. But he is 38 years old, and he’s under contract only through next year. So the Pittsburgh Steelers need to think about a succession plan, probably next offseason. Jets’ general manager Joe Douglas seems to be the right track...
            by Teresa M. Walker  NASHVILLE, Tennessee (AP) — The Tennessee Titans suspended in-person activities through Friday after the NFL says three Titans players and five personnel tested positive for the coronavirus, becoming the first COVID-19 outbreak of the NFL season in Week 4. The outbreak threatened to jeopardize the Titans’ game this weekend against the Pittsburgh Steelers and posed the first significant in-season test to the league’s coronavirus protocols. The NFL issued a statement Tuesday saying both the Titans and Minnesota Vikings suspended in-person activities Tuesday following the Titans’ test results. The Titans beat the Vikings 31-30 in Minneapolis last weekend. “Both clubs are working closely with the NFL and the NFLPA, including our infectious disease experts,...
    The Titans returned eight positive COVID-19 test results — three players and five personnel — Tuesday morning leading into Week 4, according to a statement released by the NFL. The Titans played against the Vikings in Week 3, placing two different games in doubt for Week 4 of the NFL season. The Titans are scheduled to host the Steelers at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 4, but reports indicate that the NFL is considering canceling that contest.  Through the first three weeks of the season, there hadn’t been any concerns about game cancellations due to COVID-19. The NFL has some built-in scheduling flexibility thanks to each team having a bye week, although the Titans and Steelers do not share a common...
    The Pittsburgh Steelers are 3-0, but are they actually a good team? At this point in an NFL season, the catch-phrases can get thick. You can only play the teams on your schedule, you are what your record says you are, they say. The standings say the Pittsburgh Steelers are 3-0, and if the Baltimore Ravens lose to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night they will lead the AFC North by themselves. From early in the second quarter on during Sunday’s game, the Steelers outscored the Houston Texans 25-7 to escape with a 28-21 win and stay unbeaten. The reverse happened in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos, as backup quarterback Jeff Driskel nearly led a comeback that fell...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Steelers’ home opener sure looked different with no audience inside Heinz Field. The big game usually brings thousands of fans and lots of money for surrounding businesses. North Shore businesses told KDKA they unsure what to expect during Sunday’s game but were pleasantly surprised by the rush of patrons. “I was expecting it to be kind of slow.

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger threw for 311 yards with two touchdowns and an interception and the Pittsburgh Steelers fended off a spirited comeback by the Denver Broncos 26-21 on Sunday. The Steelers (2-0) knocked out Denver starting quarterback Drew Lock in the first quarter with a right shoulder injury. They didn’t secure the win until safety Terrell Edmunds sacked Broncos backup Jeff Driskel on fourth-and-2 with less than two minutes to go. Driskel completed 18 of 34 for 256 yards with two touchdowns and a pick, and absorbed a serious pounding at the hands of Pittsburgh’s defense. The Steelers had seven sacks in all — six of them on Driskel — and were credited with 19 quarterback hits. Still,...
    JuJu Smith-Schuster is on a mission to redeem himself after a rough 2019 season Smith-Schuster’s sub-par 2019 campaign wasn’t all his fault, as the Steelers quarterback play was brutal at times. Duck Hodges and Mason Rudolph are not of the same quality as Ben Roethlisberger, and now that the veteran QB is back and (thus far) healthy, Smith-Schuster is using that improved ball placement to his advantage. JuJu’s in a contract year, which as all NFL players know is the time to ball out in hopes of earning a multi-year, multi-million dollar deal. Especially at Smith-Schuster’s age, the time is now to earn every cent of his value. While it’s just one play, $omething or $omeone has gotten to...
    The Pittsburgh Steelers organization made the decision to put the name of Antwon Rose, an accused drive-by shooter, on their players helmets. That, according to Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick who says putting Rose’s name on the helmets was not the players call. “It was mostly made from people upstairs and everything else like that,” Fitzpatrick told ESPN. “Don’t know exactly who. Don’t know exactly how. But we did. We knew that we were going to have somebody on the back of our helmets, and it wasn’t exactly clear on what it was going to be. It was mostly made by everyone upstairs.” That organizational decision was not embraced by all. Steelers tackle Alejandro Villanueva chose to display the name of Army hero...
    Pittsburgh Steelers lineman Maurkice Pouncey now says that he regrets joining with his teammates team in putting Antwon Rose, Jr.’s name on his helmet on Monday, saying he didn’t know all the facts in the case beforehand. Pouncey says he was given only “limited facts” about the police-involved death of the Pittsburgh teenager and noted that he would “make my own decision” about who to honor on his helmet in the future instead of merely following the team’s recommendations, TMZ reported. “I want to personally clarify what transpired this past Monday night in regard to having Antwon Rose’s name on the back of my helmet,” Pouncey said on Thursday after learning more of the facts surrounding the young man’s death....

    The return of veteran Ben Roethlisberger was a huge positive for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night. The former Super Bowl winner suffered an elbow injury in the opening stages last year, which ruled him out for the rest of the season. He returned to the lineup on Monday and led the Steelers to a comfortable 26-16 win over the New York Giants. After a shaky start to the game, the Steelers slowly began to take control of things at the MetLife Stadium and Coach Mike Tomlin will be happy with the result. However, there were certain areas that the Steelers still need to work upon. Popular sports talk show host, Colin Cowherd, went on a lengthy rant on Tuesday...

(Photo Credit: Pittsburgh Steelers) Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick said Thursday the decision to put the name of a Black teenager shot in the back and killed by a white East Pittsburgh police officer on the back of each player’s helmet on Monday night was made by the front office and not the players. “We knew we were going to have somebody on the back...

    (KDKA) —  The Pittsburgh Steelers relied on a stout defense and a strong running game in their Week 1 win over the New York Giants. The defense allowed the usually dynamic Saquon Barkley a grand total of six yards on 15 carries. They also harassed Giants quarterback Daniel Jones into a pair of interceptions, which the Steelers turned into 10 points. On offense, backup running back Benny Snell racked up 113 yards on his 19 carries in place of James Conner. More importantly, Week 1 also marked quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s return to action. Big Ben, who last stepped under center in September 2019, missed most of the season with an elbow injury. He contributed three touchdowns and 229 yards on...

    (CBS4) — The Denver Broncos didn’t look sharp in their season opener, dropping a 16-14 slug-fest to the Tennessee Titans. A last-second Stephen Gostkowski field goal gave the Titans the win. Though had the usually reliable kicker made his previous four kicks, the game may not have been so close. The Broncos had their own what-if scenario which could have turned the tide of the game. On fourth-and-goal in the second quarter, Vic Fangio went for it, only to have Drew Lock’s shovel pass to Jake Butt stuffed at the goal line. Of course, had the Broncos executed in the second half, this play may have been a moot point too. It wasn’t a pretty game, but a little more...
    Myles Garrett will never live down his fight with Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph on November 14, 2019, and more specifically, his decision to swing a helmet at Rudolph in a moment of rage. His NFL legacy is in some ways already sealed regardless of how many career sacks he accumulates. He’s the player who used an opponent’s helmet as a weapon in primetime football action. When the Browns, who drafted Garrett No. 1 overall in 2017, face the Bengals on Thursday, his infamous attack will almost certainly be recounted by TV broadcasters. After all, the scrap with Pittsburgh took place on “Thursday Night Football” last season. Garrett served a lengthy suspension following the Browns-Steelers brawl. He’s back this year, though, and expected to be entering...

    (KDKA)- The Pittsburgh Steelers looked a little rusty in their Week 1 win over the New York Giants. But that’s to be expected after a canceled preseason, with a returning quarterback who missed last season’s final 14 games. The Steelers, and Ben Roethlisberger, ultimately did not disappoint. Pittsburgh put up 26 points and shut down running back Saquon Barkley. Big Ben threw for 229 yards and three touchdowns on 21-32 passing. The Steelers were led by defense and the running game. The defense made several big plays, including Cam Heyward’s interception of a deflected Daniel Jones pass to end a 19-play, 87-yard Giants drive. Benny Snell stepped in for James Conner, who injured his ankle, to pick up 113 yards...

    The Pittsburgh Steelers only had starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for two games last year before he suffered a season-ending elbow injury, and they still finished with an 8-8 record and were on the brink of a playoff berth in the AFC. Roethlisberger will return under center in 2020, and with weapons like wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson, James Washington, running backs James Conner and Benny Snell Jr. and newly acquired tight end Eric Ebron, the Steelers are primed for a big year offensively after their defense carried the team a year ago. The Steelers revamped their defensive in a matter of a couple of years, and now you have top-tier talents like T.J. Watt, Devin Bush, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Cameron Heyward,...

Furthermore, latest backup QB rankings launched by Professional Soccer Focus and NFL.com, each have Rudolph ranked because the 28th-best projected backup QB within the league.

A second-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Claypool is performing so well, many out there expect him to be an immediate playmaker for the Pittsburgh offense. It goes without saying, but this is incredible news for veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Chase Claypool is getting rave reviews from the media, coaches and teammates.

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Minkah Fitzpatrick is just fine with how 2019 turned out, thanks for asking. So forgive the Pittsburgh Steelers safety for not demanding the team change how it uses him in his second season patrolling the back end of the secondary. “I was happy with Pro Bowl, All-Pro,” Fitzpatrick said Monday. So were the Steelers, who audaciously sent a 2020 first-round pick to Miami a couple of days after losing quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for the season to secure the dynamic Fitzpatrick. The 23-year-old repaid the gamble by becoming the missing piece on a defense that single-handedly kept Pittsburgh in the playoff hunt until the final weeks.

    The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback is the obvious favorite for a year-end award For the past calendar year, we’ve seen two quarterbacks in the 2004 NFL Draft class get replaced by their successor. The New York Giants benched Eli Manning after two games in favor of Daniel Jones, while the Los Angeles Chargers allowed Phillip Rivers to hit the open market and replaced him with Tyrod Taylor and Justin Herbert. Many expected the Pittsburgh Steelers to follow a similar path in regards to Ben Roethlisberger, especially since he suffered a season-ending elbow injury last year. The Steelers, however, had absolute faith in their two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback’s rehabilitation. If the front office and coaching staff are correct, Roethlisberger is the sure-fire...

Right tackle Alejandro Villanueva will hit 32 in September and is in the final year of his contract.
