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.
With 847 receiving TD’s in 2018, the NFL broke it’s previous record of 842 from 2015. The 3rd most is a big drop down to 807 (2014).— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) January 5, 2019
There were only 5 kickoff returns for TD’s in 2018 in the NFL, the lowest since 1993.— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) January 4, 2019
The Baltimore Ravens only had 1 player rush for 100 yards against them all season: @JamesConner_ (107) in Week 9.— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) January 4, 2019
Only 7 teams recorded a safety in 2018, the fewest since 1970. The @steelers were 1 of 3 teams who had 2 (Rams, Jags). #Steelers— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) January 4, 2019
The @steelers and @ChicagoBears are the only 2 teams who have recorded at least one safety each of the last 3 seasons.— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) January 4, 2019
The 2018 season was the first time since 1992 where the @steelers held a team to less than 75 net passing yards in multiple games (Week 11 in Jacksonville: 64; Week 17 vs Cincinnati: 71).— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) January 2, 2019
Ben Roethlisberger led the NFL with 16 INTs. Not counting the shortened 1982 season, that's the fewest INTs thrown by a league leader since 1946 https://t.co/61kRjAYb3f pic.twitter.com/oqDVT46bh7— ProFootballReference (@pfref) January 3, 2019
#Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (@_BigBen7) led the #NFL in pass completions (452) and passing yards (5,129) in 2018.— Dom Rinelli (@drinelli) January 3, 2019
Roethlisberger is the second player in franchise history to lead the League in both categories in a season, joining Jim Finks (1955).
The #Steelers offensive line was one of the most consistently dominant groups in the NFL. They finished the season as the #1 ranked offensive line in the league. https://t.co/dSlBsm21ZA— PFF PIT Steelers (@PFF_Steelers) January 2, 2019

The Steelers are the 3rd team to start 7-2-1 or better through 10 games & fail to reach the playoffs since the current playoff format was adopted in 1990.— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) December 31, 2018
The other 2 teams were the 1995 Raiders (8-2) and 1993 Dolphins (8-2), who both lost QBs to injury.
Steelers will have missed playoffs five times in Roethlisberger's career.— Scott Kacsmar (@FO_ScottKacsmar) December 31, 2018
Every time they were one game out of a spot.
Every time they lost a game to the Raiders.
