Despite putting up 31 of the teams’s 38 points scored in the Steelers win over the Browns, quarterback Ben Roethlsiberger explained to the media after the game that he didn’t really feel like the offense did that much. And Roethlsiberger’s final stat line points in that direction. The future Hall of Fame quarterback only completed 14 passes for 162 yards on the day.

Roethlisberger also talked about how the strong imposing play of the defense can help the offense have success, even without accumulating a bunch of big numbers.

There will be no fans in attendance when the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Baltimore Ravens in their rescheduled game at Heinz Field this Sunday, the team announced on Wednesday afternoon.

The team had expected to host 5,500 fans at the game when it was originally expected to be held on Thursday evening, but that game was supposed to be the last with with any significant complement of fans for the time being.

The Steelers re-scheduled game with the Baltimore Ravens will kick off at 1:15 p.m. on Sunday and be broadcast nationally on NBC.

The Steelers had been expecting 5,500 fans for the game, but that was expected to be the last game with fans at home for the time being, as Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has modified his COVID-19 mitigation plan and there is a new maximum capacity of 2,500 at the venue.
