Yes– that’s the headline. Who would have thought it?! That in week 8 of the NFL season the lowly Oakland Raiders and the Super Bowl Championship Pittsburgh Steelers would have the exact same recordâ€”2 and 5? Not only that, but Oaklandâ€™s second win came against the Steelers! Ouch!
Roethlisberger threw 4 interceptions, two of which were returned for TDs by the Raiders. The final score was 20 to 13 with both of the Raidersâ€™ touchdowns coming in interceptions.
So, anyone think Bill Cowherâ€™s jobs on the line?
Next week Pittsburgh plays the Broncos at home. At least theyâ€™ve won 2 games at home. There are three teams in the NFL that have won only one game thus far. The Steelers are one of 9 NFL clubs that have won a mere 2 games. Looking at the rest of Pittsburgh schedule, they will most likely be 7 and 9 (at best) by the end of the season.
Has a NFL team ever fallen so far so quickly?
