The Steelers went 2-1 in the month of October, but a loss at Oakland at the end of the month leaves the team in desperation mode as November begins.

Jeannette's Terrelle Pryor broke an NFL record with a 93-yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage, Darren McFadden added two scores and the Raiders defense punished the Steelers as Oakland held off Pittsburgh 21-18 Sunday afternoon.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, at 0-4, have been dreadful to watch in what might be their worst season in decades. PSR’s Ken Torgent addresses the past, present, and future of this version of the Steelers looking at what they are, how they got there, and where they could go from here.

After a Week 4 bye, the Steelers look to regroup and pick up their first win of the season. Pittsburgh plays just three times in October, opening the month on the road in New York before returning home to host AFC North rival Baltimore.

Ben Roethlisberger's 383 yards passing wasn't enough to recover from deficits all day long as the Pittsburgh defense simply couldn't stop Adrian Peterson and the Steelers fell to the Vikings 34-27 in London.

As the sun begins to set on the careers of Steelers' safeties Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu, there is a familiar feeling. A Steelers' generation before Clark and Polamalu also won multiple Super Bowls before fading into retirement on teams that were mere shells of the ones that made them Hall of Famers.

The Steelers offense finally showed signs of life for the first time this season, but a bevy of turnovers put the team in a 24-3 deficit en route to the 40-23 loss to the Chicago Bears. Pittsburgh falls to 0-3 for the first time since 2000 and will enter week 4 in sole possession of last place in the AFC North.

Like a fully-loaded semi that has lost its breaks careening down the mountain. Like a powerful locomotive surging down the tracks, its whistle screaming out a warning. Like a 10 ton meteor blistering through the earth’s atmosphere at the speed of sound, burning everything in its path.

The Bengals defense held the Steelers to under 300 yards of offense and just 44 on the ground as Cincinnati topped Pittsburgh 20-10 on Monday Night Football, sending the Black and Gold home with an 0-2 record.

The Pittsburgh Steelers' offense had an abysmal showing and the team may have lost Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey for the season in a dreadful 16-9 season-opening loss to the Tennessee Titans.

The Bengals are the trendy pick to win the AFC North. Cincinnati is coming off a playoff season, has loads of talent on offense and has added to an already tough defense... will they live up to expectations?

Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos looked unbeatable in Thursday's season-opener. But last year's runners-up, the San Francisco 49ers and newly-added wide receiver Anquan Boldin, are the team to beat in 2013.

I was in a minor league press box in Charlotte, NC, last month, taking in one of Gregory Polanco’s final triple-A games. A colleague, upon learning I was from Pittsburgh, approached me with a question.
