How the Steelers’ defense outsmarted Tom Brady and Bill Belichick – Behind the Steel Curtain

The Pittsburgh Steelers are a very inconsistent team, and nothing showed this more than the team rebounding from losses to the BroncosChargers and Raiders with a huge home win vs. the New England Patriots in Week 15. It doesn’t get any easier for the Steelers though, as the New Orleans Saints await in Week 16.

Mike Tomlin of Pittsburgh Steelers rips on season’s penalty calls

PITTSBURGH — Mike Tomlin is no longer holding back on the way NFL games are officiated.

Tomlin, a member of the NFL’s competition committee, made clear after the Pittsburgh Steelers‘ 41-17 victory Sunday over the Atlanta Falcons that he’s not at all happy with the calls trending around the league.

Asked about linebacker Bud Dupree‘s two face mask penalties, Tomlin said the calls looked legitimate, then hinted many more were not.

“But some of the other stuff, man, is a joke,” Tomlin said. “We gotta get better as a National Football League. Man, these penalties are costing people games and jobs. We gotta get ’em correct. And so I’m pissed about it, to be quite honest with you. But that’s all I’m gonna say on it.”
