Just because some hits against your team didn't result in fines doesn't mean the Steelers are the NFL's pet team.

This ain't college football where style points count. A win on the road against a divisional foe is a win. Bell won't be invisible again this year. Either Eli or Martavis will be a solid #2. Loved the 7 sacks, don't care if it's against the Browns or patriots.

Browns are professional athletes as well and Ill take any win on the road, especially in the division and just look at their early season games over the years....so many close losses where they were "just a few plays away" from winning.

Browns fans QQing that the steelers are so overrated because they barely beat them...........I bet they wish one day bengals fans would call the Browns overrated because they only beat the lowly bengals by 3 pts on the road!

Run games tend to take a little longer to develop in season because of the lack of contact in practice and preseason they aren't playing much or sitting out like LevBell. Itll take a few games before the running attack can improve typically.
I really hate this sort of apologetics.

There are elite teams and bad teams in the NFL and the gap between them is multiple scores. The Browns are a max 6 or 7 wins team, while the Steelers, talent-wise, are a 14-2, 13-3 type of team. The game should not have been within 14 points. Anyone who fails to accept that game for the failure it was is simply delusional.

I'm not defending anything. I actually mentioned the team's lack of discipline on Sunday as something I disliked. It's just ridiculous to think the Steelers are given preferential treatment by the league.

Honestly, The Steelers..tell that to Bryant, Shazier, Mitchell, Bell et al. There is no favoritism. They had 14 penalties Sunday. What Shazier did was stupid. Probably deserves a fine in today's NFL but certainly not a suspension,

Just did a quick look at the 2016 season. The patriots beat the Jets by 5. The Falcons LOST to San Diego. Elite teams barely beating or losing to bad teams in the NFL. isn't uncommon. I'm not say8ng it was a good performance by Pittsburgh. I'm saying it's not some crystal ball of things to come. No such thing as an ugly win in the pros. Unless it's week 17 and you need to win by a certain amount for a tie breaker.

However, your point on the undisciplined penalties is correct. Too many times Tomlin will say " well get that fixed-i promise you." And they do the same crap the next week. I foresee I big offensive game this week at Heinz

did you happen to watch any other NFL game this past weekend? did you see the kind of football that some of those "elite" teams were playing?

it happened EVERYWHERE.

nice try, though. the gap is way closer than you're making it out to be.

This isn't college or HS. The elite NFL teams arent going to route opponents by 28-45 points each week.

A win is a win, and on the road in the division to boot.

No one said anything about 28-45 points.

Sorry but no. Performance matters. Struggling to beat a bad team is never a good sign.
