Compiling statistics can take hours upon hours in order to find the proper numbers. To save you the trouble, here are some of the best statistics about the Steelers from this past week.
I will begin with a few statistics of my own before going on to other various Steeler sources. Feel free to follow me on Twitter @STLRSuperFanDad in order to get some of BTSC’s geekiest stats.
Heading into Week 16, Terrell Edmunds leads the Steelers in snaps with 1128 (917 defense, 211 special teams). The leader over the last 3 seasons is Alejandro Villanueva with 3,418 total snaps (3,208 on offense) while only missing 29 offensive snaps in 47 regular-season games.— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) December 29, 2018
Lamar Jackson is 5-1 since taking over as the starter for the Ravens. The 5 wins came against teams in the bottom half on the NFL in takeaways:— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) December 27, 2018
If the Ravens do not win on Sunday, it will be the first time ever where no team in the AFC North reached double-digit wins in the regular season. In fact, there has been a team with double-digit wins before the final game of the season every year since 2003.— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) December 27, 2018
Over the previous 6 seasons, the Ravens are 1-5 in Week 17. All 5 losses were to the Cincinnati Bengals while their lone victory was over the Cleveland Browns.— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) December 24, 2018
The only team to hold the Saints to fewer than 31 points in New Orleans was the Cleveland Browns in Week 3 (21 points)— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) December 24, 2018
The 2017 Steelers (13-3) were 8-2 in one-score games. The 2018 Steelers (8-6-1) are 5-5-1. The ability to pull out tight games makes or breaks a season.— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) December 24, 2018
The @steelers have never played a 4PM start in Week 17 at Heinz Field. Their only non-1PM kickoff at Heinz Field was the 27-17 win over the Bengals in 2014. The only home 4PM kickoff in franchise history was a 47-36 loss to the Titans at Three Rivers Stadium in Jan 2000.— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) December 24, 2018
Ben Roethlisberger is 10-0 as a starter in Week 17, the most wins without a loss in a single week by any starting QB in the Super Bowl era, according to @ESPNStatsInfo. Roger Staubach, Joe Montana and Joe Flacco have nine wins apiece.— Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerESPN) December 28, 2018
