Mike Tomlin’s job reportedly not in jeopardy

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is not expected to lose his job regardless of whether or not the team makes the playoffs this year.

Fantasy Impact

Rapoport writes the team could instead make changes to its coaching staff, particularly on the defensive side. Pittsburgh has recently beaten New England and kept it close with New Orleans, but they’ve also had embarrassing losses to Denver and Oakland as of late. It sounds as if the Steelers will be bringing back the same core for 2019.

Pittsburgh defense struggles against the Saints

The Pittsburgh Steelers defense had a rough outing in a 31-28 loss to the Saints in Week 16. Pittsburgh managed two sacks and forced one interception in the game.

Fantasy Impact

The Steelers allowed the Saints to march down the field for the game-winning touchdown with 1:25 left in the game. They will have a good shot at bouncing back in Week 17 against a weak Cincinnati offense.

Pittsburgh Steelers defense holds Patriots to 10 points

The Pittsburgh Steelers defense turned in an excellent performance in a 17-10 win over the Patriots in Week 15. The Steelers managed one sack and one interception in the game.

Fantasy Impact

This is perhaps the Pittsburgh defense's best performance of the year as they held an explosive New England offense to just 10 points. They will need to bring it again in Week 16 against another dangerous offense in the Saints.

Pittsburgh defense picks up four sacks

The Pittsburgh Steelers D/ST allowed the Raiders to score 24 points in a Week 14 loss but they did manage four sacks and a forced turnover in the game.

Fantasy Impact

The Steelers have been near the top of the league in sacks all season and kept it up on Sunday. They have been a solid fantasy defense this season but won't be a recommended play in Week 15 against the Patriots.
