Steelers have reason to overlook Jaguars now
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Even if the memory is still fresh, the temptation is there for Pittsburgh to overlook the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Steelers might have been guilty of that in January in the AFC divisional playoffs. Mike Mitchell and Le'Veon Bell talked more about a rematch in the conference title game against New England than the Jaguars, who had beaten them soundly at home earlier in the year. The Jaguars beat them again, 45-42.

Steelers’ James Conner shines in Le’Veon Bell’s absence
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers aren't surprised by the success of second-year running back James Conner.

Starting right guard David DeCastro and right tackle Marcus Gilbert both practiced in full this week after missing the team's first win Monday at Tampa Bay because of injury.
"I feel really good," DeCastro said. "I'm just looking forward to getting back out there."

Steelers QB Roethlisberger, CB Haden dealing with injuries
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers will be a little short-handed as they prepare for their home opener against Kanas City.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, cornerback Joe Haden and guard David DeCastro could all miss practice time after getting dinged up in a season-opening tie in Cleveland.
Roethlisberger is dealing with a right (throwing) elbow issue, Haden has a hamstring problem and DeCastro fractured one of his hands during the four-hour marathon in a monsoon.
Steelers move forward after “very surreal” tie with Browns
PITTSBURGH (AP) — It wasn't a win. It wasn't a loss. It was ... weird.
Seventy minutes of flags, fumbles and the occasional fight. Forgive the Pittsburgh Steelers if they're not quite sure what to make of their 21-21 tie against Cleveland in the season opener.
A full day removed, they still can't quite put a finger on how to feel after a 14-point fourth-quarter lead somehow morphed into the franchise's first tie in 16 years.
“Old dude” Fichtner ready to guide Steelers offense
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ask the men he coaches what makes Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner tick, and you get a variation of the same response.
He's a dude. A good dude. But just a dude.
"There's nothing special or outrageous or eccentric," guard David DeCastro said.
And that might be exactly what the Steelers need after six highly productive if occasionally volatile seasons with Todd Haley calling the plays.

Humbled Steelers face questions heading into offseason
PITTSBURGH (AP) — It wasn't the pregame talk about New England.
Or the seemingly weekly distractions that piled up one on top of the other, some of them self-created and others the byproduct of circumstances far beyond their control.
It's been about 2½ years since the most prominent members of the Steelers' offense publicly called for making 30 points per game the team's goal.
Steelers sitting Big Ben, Bell vs winless Browns
The Pittsburgh Steelers are giving Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, running back Le'Veon Bell and other starters the day off against the winless Cleveland Browns despite having a shot at home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.
Roethlisberger and Bell were joined on the sidelines by offensive linemen David DeCastro and Maurkice Pouncey and defensive end Cam Heyward. All are healthy but inactive for Pittsburgh.
8 Steelers, 6 Eagles and Saints highlight Pro Bowl squads

Roethlisberger throws 4 TDs, Steelers drill Titans 40-17
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Another uninspiring half in the books in a season littered with them for a team that expects to play deep into January and beyond, Ben Roethlisberger decided he had seen enough.
So the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback decided it was time to speak up. The defense had kept the Tennessee Titans and star Marcus Mariota in check, yet a game that had the makings of a blowout didn't feel like one mostly because the offense kept squandering chance after chance.
