Week 14 Steelers Postgame Report: Social Media Reaction
With star quarterback Lamar Jackson absent due to injury, the Pittsburgh Steelers somehow managed to fall to Baltimore Ravens backups Tyler Huntley and Anthony Brown by a score of 16-14. With this loss, the Steelers fall to 5-8 for the season.
Arguably the biggest story of this game was the performance of Steelers backup quarterback Mitch Trubisky, who came in relief of rookie Kenny Pickett after he sustained a concussion from a hit he took in the first quarter. Despite throwing for 276 yards and a touchdown late in the contest, it was Trubisky's three interceptions that prevented the Steelers from collecting well-needed points.
The other big story was the Steelers' run defense, which surrendered 215 yards on the ground, with Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins accounting for 120 of them. Coming into this contest, the Steelers defense ranked 26th in run stop win rate; this performance will likely see them go further down this list.
With their playoff hopes dwindling and the manner in which they lost a winnable game, the Steelers' social media world was not a happy place.
