Steelers Pound Rams 27-0

Mike Wallace #17 of the Pittsburgh Steelers makes a catch against Josh Gordy

If the Steelers defense plays like they did Saturday in the postseason, maybe they don’t need QB Ben Roethlisberger.

Ok, let’s not get crazy.

With that said, it was good Saturday for the Black and Gold to be able to take advantage of a 2-win Rams team that was already looking to clean out their lockers. The defense laid out the Rams all day, and while Steven Jackson had some yards against the Steelers D, it was mostly a solid effort by the defense in the Steelers 27-0 Christmas Eve win.

The victory puts the Steelers at 11-4, and while they are already in the postseason, they still have things to play for next week when they head to Cleveland to play the now 4-11 Browns.

First off, the Ravens have a tough road game at Cincy, and with the Bengals still thinking about the 6th playoff spot, they will play that game 100 percent, meaning if the Ravens lay yet another road egg and the Steelers win, they take home the AFC North and likely the #2 seed in the AFC.

If the above happens and the Patriots happen to lose at home to the Bills, which is unlikely but you never know, the Steelers would actually take home the #1 seed.
