The flexing process has begun for the NFL. With the current schedule for Week Seven featuring Seahawks-Giants and Broncos-Chargers as the options at 4:25 p.m. ET, the NFL has moved the Bengals-Steelers game from 1:00 p.m. ET to 4:25 p.m. ET.

Mike Tomlin says “bomb” made gameplan look worse than intended

The criticism of the Steelers has been growing, even from their own locker room, after last week’s ugly loss to the Jaguars.

Jesse James hints that Steelers were outcoached

It’s one thing for the Jaguars to crow that the Steelers played into their hands on Sunday. It’s another thing for a Steeler to say it.

Le’Veon Bell doesn’t think Steelers ran enough on Sunday

Jaguars safety Barry Church said after Sunday’s 30-9 win over the Steelers that Pittsburgh’s offensive approach, which saw the Steelers run 20 times and drop back to pass 57 times, “played right into our hands.” One member of the Steelers appears to agree with Church’s assessment. Le'Veon Bell ran 15 times for 47 yards in [more]
