Steelers 2021 Season Preview

The Steelers finished atop the AFC North with a 12-4 record and had the 12th ranked offense in the league last year, scoring 26.0 points a game. Roethlisberger completed 65.6% of his passes for 3,803 yards, 33 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, but he’ll have five new starters on the offensive line blocking for him, and the veteran QB thinks a rough start is not out of the question.

“We’re going to have to kind of learn on the fly — all of us,” Roethlisberger said about his offense. “It may not be pretty early. We have to accept that fact, too. But at the end of the day, we just have to do what we have to do to win a football game.”

Third-round pick Kendrick Green will start at center, and his fellow rookie Dan Moore Jr. will start at left tackle. Green lost 12-13 pounds this offseason, and he has been putting in a great deal of work to prepare.

“Like anything, there’s going to be growing pains,” Roethlisberger added, in reference to his rookie offensive linemen heading into Week 1. “We’re all going to experience them. Even someone in his 18th season is going to experience growing pains. The key is, do we learn from those growing pains? How often do those pains come?”

JuJu Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool should be top targets for the veteran QB, and rookie running Najee Harris will be featured heavily on offense, as well.

On defense, the Steelers were third in the NFL in points allowed last year (19.5) Led by T.J. Watt, who has been working on negotiating a new contract with the team, Pittsburgh promises to be a dominant defensive force once again, but winning the AFC North for a second straight season won’t be easy.
