There was a lot to gripe about regarding the Pittsburgh

Steelers in the month of September. After all Youth Artie Burns Jersey , there was a reason Mike Tomlin spoke about the “September Stench” surrounding his team as the calendar turned to October. But one of the most blatant issues with the Steelers has been penalties. In fact, the Steelers are the most penalized team in the NFL heading into Week 7, but the team is trending in the right direction. This from Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:21 penalties in three games for 167 yards is hardly something to write home about, but it is a far cry from the 37 penalties for 361 yards in their first trio of games.The penalties have been numerous, and in almost every variety possible. Lining up illegally on a kickoff/punt , illegal hands to the face, illegal man down field and the always fun false starts to put the offense in an early hole regarding down and distance.With that said, if there is one area of the Steelers which has played superb throughout the entire season, it would be the offensive line. Sure, everyone sees them keeping Ben Roethlisberger upright Cheap Le'Veon Bell Jersey , but look at these penalty statistics:Yes, the Steelers get penalized a lot, but very few of those penalties come from the offensive line. Throw in the fact this unit hasn’t allowed a sack, and only one quarterback hit, in the past two games , and it is safe to say this is one of the league’s best offensive lines.The road ahead for the Steelers doesn’t get easier. Teams like the Ravens, Saints, Patriots and Chargers all await them in the second half of the season, and one thing the team can’t do is continually shoot themselves in the foot with penalties. By just eliminating the negative plays via penalty will immensely help the Steelers’ chances of not just winning games, but winning the AFC North division and punching their ticket into the postseason once again.NFL Odds and Predictions: Picking the full Week-6 slate of games against the spread While the Pittsburgh Steelers had arguably their best week of the season so far last Sunday Cheap T. J. Watt Jersey , sadly the same cannot be said for the BTSC staff picks. Jeff Hartman was a pedestrian 7-7 against both the spread and the totals, while I led you astray with a 5-9 record ATS and only a marginally better 8-6 record versus the totals. Hoping to prove our picking skills are not going the same way as Eli Manning’s football career, we aim to do better in Week 6.With more road favorites than we’ve seen all season and a number of games featuring spreads of more than a touchdown, there’s a very different feel to this weekend's action compared to the lines we’ve been seeing lately. As the dominant teams attempt to separate themselves from the pack, several key games on the schedule this Sunday should highlight the contenders and expose the pretenders.If the Cleveland Browns really have turned a corner this season , a home game against the Los Angeles Chargers is one they should win, while the Kansas City Chiefs could make a real statement about their potential in 2018 with a win over the New England Patriots in Foxboro.
