There’s one thing we know for certain about the 2012 Pittsburgh Steelers — they’re not a strong road team. Traveling to Tennessee, an environ that has never been favorable to them, the Steelers gave up yet another 4th quarter lead and dropped their 3rd game of the season 26-23.
The night was historic in a sense, as Ben Roethlisberger broke Terry Bradshaw’s career passing yardage total. However, the record means little to Roethlisberger himself, who sees that additional championships as his only record important to him.
A third Super Bowl for Roethlisberger does not appear to be in the offing his year, to say the least.
In addition to giving the Steelers another road loss and another AFC loss, the game was costly in terms of injuries, as Maurkice Pouncey
, Marcus Gilbert
, Chris Carter
, Isaac Redman
, and Rashard Menedenhall
were all injured.
The sailing does look to get rough from here on out. But rest assured Steel Curtain Rising will continue to follow the Black and Gold every step of the way.
