Going to an NFL game isn’t what it used to be. Stadiums used to be full of fans eagerly watching the on-field action. Cheering for their team. Heckling the refs (and players). Rehashing plays.

With a whirl-wind season that's almost over, and a must-win on Sunday, it's time for a Christmas list version of the Steelers whacky 2013 season. Here's everything that fits underneath the black and gold tree...

Le'Veon Bell scored with 1:28 remaining and rushed for 124 yards, and the Steelers defense made a last-second stand to lead Pittsburgh to a 38-31 road win at Green Bay, keeping the team's faint playoff hopes alive as the season enters the final week.

Ben Roethlisberger threw for 275 yards and 3 TDs, but the Steelers defense couldn't come up with a stop when they needed one in the second half and the Dolphins ended Pittsburgh's playoff hopes by beating the Steelers 34-28 at Heinz Field on Sunday, despite some last-play heroics by the home team.

Defensive back Will Allen joined the Steelers in 2010 and played in every game but two over the next three seasons, starting seven in 2012. He departed for Dallas as a free agent in the offseason, but re-joined the team midway through this season and contributed immediately, sealing the team’s Week 11 victory over the Lions with a fourth quarter interception.

After starting the season 0-4, the Steelers’ playoff chances looked dead on arrival. Pittsburgh is steadily rebuilding its confidence with a 5-3 record since mid-October. The team faces some challenging opponents this month.

Tank the rest and draft high. After the Steelers started the 2013 season with four consecutive losses, even the most simplistic armchair quarterback complaint seemed like sound advice.

Ben Roethlisberger led Pittsburgh to two fourth quarter touchdowns, but a last minute two-point conversion attempt fell incomplete and the Ravens beat the Steelers 22-20 in Baltimore Sunday night.

Domestic violence is awful. That’s something most of us can agree on, in black and white terms. Right? Wrong. Domestic violence, like so many problematic subjects, has shades of gray.

Bill Cherpak misses the way it used to be. Back in the 80’s, when the current Thomas Jefferson High School coach was a player at Steel Valley, the recruiting process wasn’t publicized. It was low-key compared to the present.
