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, championship games, and upcoming Super Bowl published during 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.
The 2018 New England Patriots are the 1st NFL team to ever reach the Super Bowl with 5 losses to non-playoff teams (Jacksonville, Detroit, Tennessee, Miami, and Pittsburgh).— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) January 23, 2019
There were 25 games in the NFL this season in which a team did not reach 15 rushing attempts. In those games, teams were 2–23. The only wins were Miami v. Oakland in Week 3 (14 attempts) and Pittsburgh in Jacksonville in Week 11 (11 attempts).— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) January 22, 2019
