Pittsburgh Steelers: 2013 Week 4 NFL Power Rankings (#22)

Last week: 22 (-4)

The Steelers had 21 first downs, 2 punts, and 459 total yards to 15, 6, and 258 for the Bears, but lost by 17 because they committed 5 turnovers, 2 which went for touchdowns, without forcing a single turnover. They are now -9 in turnovers on the season, tied with the also 0-3 Giants for worst in the NFL. Fortunately, that kind of thing tends to be inconsistent in the long run. Also fortunately, they return Le’Veon Bell from injury this week and get safety valve Heath Miller back at full strength after he returned in limited fashion last week. That’s not going to be enough to push them from 0-3 into the playoffs, but they’re going to be overlooked going forward. They can still play defense and it’s only a matter of time before they start forcing takeaways (0 on the season).
