We are expecting so little of the Steelers offense and they still manage to disappoint
They are not being asked to do all that much and they still can not even achieve that.
In what has become the trend of their 2022 season, the Pittsburgh Steelers let another winnable game slip away on Sunday in an ugly — UGLY — 16-14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
This was frustrating for countless reasons.
For starters, it pretty much eliminated the Steelers’ chances of continuing to turn the season around and potentially sneak their way back into the Wild Card race. I think that is finished.
It also came against a team that was down to Tyler Huntley and Anthony Brown playing quarterback, with an offense that has been awful for a few weeks now. Everybody knew Baltimore was going to run the ball, there was no threat of a passing game to speak of, and they still ran all over the Steelers at will.
Which makes the next point even more frustrating: Even with the Steelers’ inability to stop the run they still only allowed 16 points. That is a number that should almost always guarantee you a win in the NFL because it is setting such a low bar for your offense to reach.
The Steelers were again unable to reach that laughably low bar, and lost for the third time this season when holding an opponent to 17 points or less. That is unspeakably bad, and it is also a damning indictment of the Steelers’ inability to do anything offensively.
