2016 NFL Power Rankings: Pittsburgh Steelers

Below you will find a table of Pittsburgh Steelers results in our 2016 NFL Power Rankings.

Week/PeriodRankRecordComments
Initial50-0While it hurts that Martavis Bryant (suspension) will miss all of 2016, the Steelers were without Bryant, Ben Roethlisberger and Le'Veon Bell for multiple games in 2015 yet finished third in total offense (395.4 YPG) and tied for fourth in scoring offense (26.4 PPG). Adding upgrades and reinforcements to a leaky pass defense will be key area of emphasis in the draft.
Post-Draft60-0The Steelers double-dipped by selecting defensive backs -- Artie Burns and Sean Davis -- with their first- and second-round picks. Both are a bit raw, but possess outstanding athleticism, length and upside.
Week 140-0Preseason win projection: 11-5
Week 231-0Once again, no Le'Veon Bell, no problem. The oldest running back in the NFL at 33, Williams racked up 171 yards from scrimmage and scored twice in the team's MNF win. Not that it's a good thing to be without a talent like Bell, but perhaps the suspension will turn out to be a blessing in disguise -- keeping him fresh for a full season (once he returns).
Week 322-0After two weeks, DeAngelo Williams leads the NFL in rushing (58 carries for 237 yards). Meanwhile, the Steelers have yet to allow a 25-yard rusher in a game. (Granted, they gave up a 9/100/1 receiving line to Giovani Bernard last week.)
