The Pittsburgh Steelers find themselves in a situation many did not feel was possible three months ago: win and you’re in. After a 1-4 start and loosing their franchise quarterback for the season in Week 2, many wrote off the Steelers’ 2019 season. In fact, the reason the Miami Dolphins chose the Steelers as their trade partner when they decided to deal Minkah Fitzpatrick was they believed the Steelers would possess a very high draft pick. Instead the Steelers are currently in position to make the postseason with no outside help as long as they win their final two games. For this reason, this Sunday’s matchup at the New York Jets has become of the utmost importance.
Can the Steelers rebound after a rough offensive performance against the Buffalo Bills? Can the defense continue its impressive number of sacks and takeaways? Will Le’Veon Bell be able to have a breakout performance against his former team? Can T.J. Watt add to his resume for Defensive Player of the Year?
This Sunday will answer all these questions as the Steelers look to improve their position in the AFC playoff picture. Make sure you get all the information you need below so you can enjoy the Week 16 showdown:
