Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh Steelers

One 40-point game can do wonders for your scoring average. In one fell swoop Thursday night the Steelers went from 20th in the NFL in scoring up to 13th. It was the long-awaited breakout game for the Steelers, and the players said afterward they hoped it would be the start of a new trend.

But is their 22.7 points-per-game average enough to win a Super Bowl? History suggests it would be difficult, although not impossible, to accomplish. In fact, if the Steelers maintain their current pace (22.7 points per game) and standing in the league (13th) and went on to win the Super Bowl, they would be one of the worst offenses in NFL history to raise the Lombardi trophy.

Coincidentally, the 2008 Steelers are the worst scoring offense to win a Super Bowl. The 2008 Steelers ranked 20th in the NFL in scoring, averaging 21.7 points per game. That Steelers team narrowly beats out the 2015 Denver Broncos, who were 19th in the league in scoring, averaging 22.2 points per game.

Since the 1970 merger, only the 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (18th), 1990 N.Y. Giants (15th), 2007 Giants (14th), and 2000 Baltimore Ravens (14th) won the Super Bowl with offenses ranked lower than 13th in the league.

Not so coincidentally, many of those teams are regarded as some of the best defenses of all time, including the 2000 Ravens, the 2008 Steelers and the 2002 Buccaneers. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was a young assistant on the Buccaneers staff and was the head coach of the Steelers six years later.

It certainly helps matters if you’re powered by the No. 1 defense in the league. That’s what the 2000 Ravens, 2002 Buccaneers, 2008 Steelers and 1990 Giants were.

The 2008 Steelers are an interesting comparison for this Steelers team. They endured similar struggles with their offense. They scored 14 points or fewer six times. There was a 15-6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, a 21-14 home loss to the Giants and a 31-14 shellacking in Tennessee two weeks before the playoffs began.

They still managed to go 12-4 and earned a first-round playoff bye, mostly because they held nine opponents to 15 points or fewer.

This Steelers team has held eight of the first 10 opponents to 18 points or fewer. Sure, it has endured a 30-9 home loss to Jacksonville and a 23-20 overtime loss in Chicago, plus a couple of uninspiring wins over hapless teams such as the Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts.

But it’s quite possible in February fans will look back on the losses to the Jaguars and Bears with an inquisitive: ‘What the heck happened there?’ followed by a dismissive: ‘Who cares? When’s the parade?’

It’s true the NFL has veered more toward offense in recent years with the New England Patriots serving as the poster child. But they’ve never won a Super Bowl with the league’s No. 1 scoring offense. They have won twice with the league’s top scoring defense, including last season.

In the first 51 Super Bowls the league’s top defense was victorious 15 times, or 29.4 percent of the time. A top-five scoring defense won it 31 times, or 60.7 percent of the time.

Contrast that to the number of times the No. 1 scoring offense has won the Super Bowl. That’s happened 10 times, most recently in 2009 when the New Orleans Saints did it.

There certainly have been a few outlier teams over the years that defied the odds. The 2007 Giants are probably the most notable because they are the only team to win a Super Bowl without a top-10 offense or defense. They were 14th in points scored and 17th in points allowed.

But for the most part, NFL history suggests teams better have either a dominant offense or a dominant defense to win championships. And unless more 40-point games are in the Steelers’ future, it’s the defense that will be doing all the heavy lifting.

Cheap Seattle Seahawks Jersey Wholesale From Sale

One, sure way for the sun to set on Pete Carroll’s shiny disposition?

Ask him how his Seahawks are going to replace Richard Sherman for the rest of this season.

“I don’t know. I don’t even know how to address that right now,” the coach said in the stunned aftermath of Seattle losing its three-time All-Pro cornerback to a torn Achilles tendon during Thursday night’s win at Arizona.

When the Seahawks (6-3) host Atlanta (5-4) next Monday it will be their first game without Sherman since 2010. That was the season before he entered the league as Seattle’s fifth-round draft choice.

The Seahawks have played 105 consecutive regular-season games, 12 more in the playoffs–including two Super Bowls and the franchise’s only NFL title–with Sherman there. He’s started every one of Seattle’s games at left cornerback since Oct. 30, 2011.

Now there’s a gaping void there.

“He’s just been a bastion of consistency, competitiveness and toughness through all of the stuff that we’ve worked through. It’s been awesome,” Carroll said. “It’s been hard. It’s been challenging. And he’s been extraordinary. Almost an iconic player in this league.

“He’s going to have to sit. I’ll try not to go overboard on this, but that’s just the way I feel. We’ll miss the heck out of him. He’ll been with us every step of the way when he can, but we’ll miss the heck out of him.”

Opponents for years have usually avoided throwing to Sherman’s side of the field, often leaving the rest of the Seahawks’ defense only having to defend 75 percent of the field.

Those days and weeks are over. At least for this year. And Sherman’s beyond isn’t exactly set, either.

Good thing Rick Smith likes John Schneider. If not, the Seahawks wouldn’t have a veteran starting cornerback ready to replace Sherman, although not at all near Sherman’s level.

Jeremy Lane replaced Sherman for the final 1½ quarters in the win over the Cardinals. Seattle traded him to Houston a couple weeks ago while acquiring left tackle Duane Brown. But Lane had a bruised thigh and strained groin at the time and had missed two of the last three games when he failed his trade physical with Texans doctors.

Smith, Houston’s general manager, could have walked away from the deal and taken Brown back. Instead, he agreed to the contingency plan Schneider, Seattle’s GM who has consulted with Smith for years, proposed. The Seahawks got Brown and a fifth-round choice of Houston’s in 2018, and the Texans got a third-round pick in 2018 from Seattle plus a second-round choice in 2019.

Lane, 27, has started 19 games and played in 62 during his NFL career, all for Seattle. He’s been the Seahawks’ primary nickel back inside in recent seasons, and that role is why the team signed him to a four-year, $23 million extension before the 2016 season. He had a poor ’16 season in coverage and penalties.

He began this season as the starter at right cornerback, opposite Sherman. Then Lane got ejected early from the opener Sept. 10 at Green Bay for a pushing altercation with Packers receiver Davante Adams. On Oct. 1, after four starts, he strained his groin during the win against Indianapolis. Rookie Shaquill Griffin took Lane’s right-cornerback job, and Justin Coleman his nickel spot.

Now, Lane’s healthy—and Sherman’s immediate replacement.

The Seahawks have other options. Again, none are nearer to Sherman’s level of performance or reputation.

DeShawn Shead, the starting right cornerback, could be an option. Eventually. He remains on the physically-unable-to-perform list following reconstructive knee surgery in January and a follow-up procedure this summer.

The Seahawks have until a week from Tuesday, the day after week 11 of the NFL season ends, to decide whether Shead is healthy enough to practice. If that answer is yes before or by Nov. 21, Seattle has three weeks to either add him to active roster or put him on injured reserve for the rest of this season.

Byron Maxwell is available. Another former Seahawks starting cornerback opposite Sherman, Maxwell got released by Miami Oct. 24 and is a free agent. The 29-year old began his NFL career with Seattle the same season Sherman did, in 2011. He started 17 regular-season games and all six postseason ones for the Seahawks in the 2013 and ’14 seasons, including Super Bowl 48 and 49.

Then he signed a six-year, $63 million contract with Philadelphia before the 2015 season. That was the only one he played for the Eagles. He started 13 games for Miami last season and two this season before the Dolphins cut him.

At 6 feet 1, 198 pounds, Maxwell has the size and length the Seahawks like in cornerbacks, and he obviously knows Carroll’s step-kick technique off the line of scrimmage and coverage system many Seattle imports (remember Cary Williams?) can’t grasp. Expect the Seahawks to at least call—or to have already called—to see how Maxwell might be able to fit.

Sherman turns 30 before next season, the last one of his contract. His salary for 2018 is scheduled to be a non-guaranteed $11 million, with a $13.2 million salary-cap charge.

Any idea the Seahawks might offer Sherman another extension before next season is a more remote possibility with his injury. The Achilles tear also greatly reduced his and Seattle’s leverage for any trade, which the Seahawks so publicly entertained last offseason.

For now, the Seahawks seem more likely to welcome Sherman back for 2018 at his current pay, to offer the opportunity to earn the extension and be motivated for a strong rebound season–plus possible free agency riches in the spring of 2019 at age 31.

And for now, there’s gaping hole on the left side of the Seahawks’ defense that hasn’t been there since 2010. One that Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and the Falcons will be spending all this week preparing to target next Monday night.

NFC WEST WATCH

The Rams smacked Houston at home 33-7 on Sunday, keeping Los Angeles (7-2) one game ahead of the Seahawks atop the division.

The Rams have won six of their last seven games. The one loss was last month to Seattle.

The Seahawks are currently the fifth seed in the NFC playoff picture, ahead on tiebreakers of Carolina (6-3) with seven games remaining in the regular season.. The top six in the conference make the postseason.

Cheap Kansas City Chiefs Jersey Wholesale From China For Sale

The 6-2 Kansas City Chiefs travel to AT&T Stadium on Sunday to take on the 4-3 Dallas Cowboys.

The line is a pick’em, which means neither team is favored, while the Over-Under is 51.5 points, up sharply from an open of 48.5. Uncertainty around the availability of Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has led to wild odds swings already.

Before you make any bets on Chiefs-Cowboys, you’ll want to see what SportsLine’s advanced computer model is picking.

It’s been crushing football. The model went an amazing 174-80-2 on straight-up NFL picks last season — better than all 98 experts tracked by NFLPickWatch. SportsLine computer picks also would have won over 96 percent of CBS Sports Office Pool Manager leagues that made straight-up picks last season.

The model is fresh off a 12-1 straight-up week. It called every game correctly, including the Bills stomping the Raiders and these same Cowboys beating the Redskins.

Now, the model has examined every match-up, every player, and every trend in Cowboys-Chiefs and locked in picks on the side and Over-Under.

The model knows the Cowboys may be without Elliott, who is third in the NFL with 690 rushing yards. It’s a big blow to an offense that ranks fifth with 28.3 points per game. And even if Zeke does play, missed practice time and legal distractions could hurt his productivity.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, meanwhile, is coming off a clunker against the division-rival Redskins. Although the Cowboys won, Prescott was held below 150 yards passing and didn’t throw a TD.

But just because the Cowboys could struggle offensively doesn’t mean they won’t beat the Chiefs, especially at home.

SportsLine’s model says if Elliott does sit, Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden will combine to rumble for over 100 yards and a TD.

And Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt has had issues of his own lately. He hasn’t scored since Week 3 and has been held under 100 yards each of the last three games. SportsLine’s projection model says he’ll make it four in a row against Dallas and will only rush for 80 yards.

We can tell you the model is loving Under 51.5. In fact, the Under hits in 60 percent of simulations.

But what about the side? The model says one team wins well over 50 percent of the time. And you can only go to SportsLine to see which one it is.

So what side of Chiefs-Cowboys should you take? Visit SportsLine now to see the strong winner of Chiefs-Cowboys, all from the model that crushed the NFL last week, and find out.

Cheap San Francisco 49ers Jersey Wholesale From China

The San Francisco 49ers announced multiple roster moves Tuesday, cutting veteran tight end Logan Paulsen and defensive lineman Xavier Cooper while re-signing cornerback Leon Hall and officially announcing the signing of defensive end Datone Jones.

The addition of Hall comes as no surprise as the 49ers may be without nickel cornerback K’Waun Williams against the Eagles this week due to a quadriceps injury. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters Monday there was a likelihood of re-signing Hall, who first signed with the 49ers on October 2 and was released last week.

“I think there’s a good chance we probably will have to bring Leon back. Depends how we want to look into all that though,” Shanahan said.

Jones’s signing was first reported Monday night by Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. Now in his fifth NFL season, Jones, who was a first-round draft pick of the Packers in 2013, is the latest player the 49ers have brought in to boost the defensive line with Arik Armstead and Aaron Lynch out due to injuries.

Paulsen was originally signed by the 49ers in the offseason and was released last week, only to be brought back for Sunday’s game against Dallas with fullback Kyle Juszczyk out due to a back injury. Cooper was claimed off waivers from the Cleveland Browns at the end of the preseason and played in five games with the 49ers, registering seven tackles and 0.5 sacks.
