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 the past few weeks.
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.
Here is a highlight of the past several “Stat Geek” segments from the Steelers Preview Podcast (you can check out the episode in the player below this article):
The Steelers played 4 games (3-1) in 2018 where they did not have a turnover: vs. Kansas City, at Cincinnati, at Baltimore, and vs. Carolina.
In both 2017 and 2016 the Steelers had 5 games without a turnover, and in 2015 they only had 3 games without a turnover.
The Steelers only had 2 games (2-0) in 2018 where they had multiple takeaways: at Tampa Bay (4) and vs. Carolina (2).
The Steelers had 5 games (3-2) in 2018 in which they did not have a takeaway: at Cincinnati, at Baltimore, at Denver, vs. LA Chargers, and vs. Cincinnati.
In both 2017 and 2016 the Steelers only had 3 games without a takeaway, and in 2015 they had 4 games without a takeaway.
Ben Roethlisberger is 81-16 (.835) in games started in which he did not throw an interception. Of QB’s with at least 10 starts, the only active player with a higher winning percentage is Tom Brady (144-24 for .857).— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) June 18, 2019
In the Mike Tomlin era, the #Steelers are 36-1 when they have a turnover margin of +2 or more. The only loss was in 2015 to the Ravens in overtime at Heinz Field in a game I affectionately call “The Scobee Debacle.”— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) June 18, 2019
