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 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.
With his Week-12 touchdown catch in Denver, Alejandro Villanueva was the tallest player (6’ 9”) to score an NFL TD since Morris Stroud (6’ 10”) of the Kansas City Chiefs in 1974.— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) February 3, 2019
In 2018, the Steelers had 2 tight ends who had over 14 yards/reception (minimum 5 receptions): Xavier Grimble (14.33) and Jesse James (14.10). It was the first time since 1979 with Randy Grossman (18.08) and Bennie Cunningham (14.22).— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) February 2, 2019
2018 was the first NFL season where 2 different sets of teammates had 100+ receptions: @steelers (Brown & Smith-Schuster) and @Vikings (Thielen & Diggs). Both teams finished 0.5 games out of the playoffs.— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) February 1, 2019
The Steelers 20-16 win in Jacksonville during Week 11 of 2018 marked only the 9th time in NFL history where a team was victorious with 11 rushing attempts or less.— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) January 29, 2019
Four players in @steelers history were named All-Pro a franchise high 6 times while wearing the black and gold.— Teresa Varley (@Teresa_Varley) February 1, 2019
