With the 7-2 Steelers returning from Indy after a mere four days rest to take on Tennessee, the faculty and staff at BTSC filled out report cards based on the team's performance. Join us and see just how well they graded out.

Offense: A-

The Killer B’s were on last night. Ben had four passes for scores, Bell (despite only 46 rushing yards) had 103 total, Brown's 10 catches for 144 yards and three touchdowns were a breakout and Bryant made some plays. The offense sputtered at times in the first half, but a huge prime time performance.

Valedictorian: Antonio Brown

Honor Roll: Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell, Jesse James

Detention: Pass Blocking

Defense: A-

The defense gave up big plays again, but forced a good QB into errors. Having four interceptions and six sacks for the first time since 1984 was a great exclamation point. The secondary wasn't bulletproof, but they compensated for the loss of two starters quite well.

Valedictorian: Cam Heyward

Honor Roll: Sean Davis, Stephon Tuitt, Javon Hargrave, Vince Williams, Coty Sensabaugh, T.J. Watt

Detention: Nobody, but Artie Burns had an inconsistent game

Special Teams: B+

Boswell rebounded from his worst game last week, with a money night of four field goals. Watt's FG block was pretty big early on and Berry does little things well.

Valedictorian: Chris Boswell

Honor Roll: T.J. Watt, Jordan Berry

Detention: Nobody

Overall: A

It was a statement win over a division leader. Even though this is five straight wins, this could be the game that pulls the whole season completely together.
