The Pittsburgh Steelers’ possibilities of making the playoffs continued to decrease on Saturday afternoon after dropping to the Indianapolis Colts, 30-13.
The Steelers had been 7-4 only a few weeks in the past, however after dropping three straight they’re now at 7-7. To make issues worse, the Colts gained floor on Pittsburgh within the AFC wild-card race, as did the Cincinnati Bengals after beating the Minnesota Vikings in extra time on Saturday. Cincinnati and Indianapolis at the moment are each at 8-6.
The Steelers squandered a 13-0 lead because the Colts scored 30 unanswered factors all whereas Pittsburgh’s offense was sloppy. The Black and Gold had three turnovers, together with two interceptions by quarterback Mitch Trubisky. That they had simply 216 yards of whole offense and their subpar play would not appear to have any likelihood of bettering.
Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was pissed off after the loss and informed some harsh truths at his information convention.
“Let’s be sincere, we’re a essentially poor soccer group proper now,” Tomlin stated. “We’re taking part in dropping soccer and I take duty for that. We’re not doing elementary issues properly sufficient. We’re turning the ball over, we’re extremely penalized, we do not play good in conditions. I am simply acknowledging that. I don’t essentially have the solutions right this moment. If I did, we’d have performed in another way right this moment. However I’ll acknowledge issues won’t proceed the way in which that they’re.”
Tomlin vowed that his group wouldn’t stay on this path.
“Issues will not proceed the way in which they’re,” Tomlin stated. “We’re not gonna hold doing the identical issues we’re doing and anticipate or hope for a unique end result.”
