Week 12 NFL Power Rankings

Tom Brady

11. Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 14)

There is no word to describe the Pittsburgh Steelers other than ‘inconsistent.’ Even within games, Pittsburgh bounces back-and-forth between terrible, great, and mediocre. For a large portion of their Monday Night Football game in Tennessee, the Steelers looked lost and dangerously reminiscent of the team that fell apart in New Jersey a week prior against the Jets. Then, as quickly as they needed to put everything together, they stuff the ball down the throat of the Titans and win the game outright. This example is nothing more than a microcosm for the Steelers’ 2014 season. Like the rest of the AFC North, the real Steelers team that plays the remaining five games of the season is the only one that matters.
