Inside the Steelers Locker Room: Dealing with a two-game losing streak heading into the bye week

New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers have lost back-to-back games for the first time in 2016. Listen to the players and coaches who were responsible for the Week 7 loss to the New England Patriots.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the New England Patriots in Week 7 action, and even though the cards were stacked against Pittsburgh, the team had every chance to win the football game and literally threw those opportunities away.

Missed field goals, questionable coaching decisions and ill advised turnovers all turned a chance to shock the collective football world into the team's first losing streak of the 2016 season. So, where does the team go from here? They head into their Week 8 bye week in hopes of getting healthy and ready for the Week 9 game against the Baltimore Ravens. However, the fact the future looks bright, if the team can finally get healthy, is of little significance to the players and coaches who suffered their 3rd loss on Sunday at Heinz Field.

Take a listen to the latest audio following the game from the coaches and players who were a part of the 27-16 loss Sunday.
