After Week 4 in the NFL only four teams are without a win, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ben Roethlisberger has deemed that his own squad is the worst of the bunch. After Pittsburgh lost to the Vikings 34-27 on Sunday at Wembley Stadium in London Roethlisberger presented his state of the Steelers, “Right now, you could say we’re the worst team in the league.” The Steelers haven’t had a losing season in ten years and they are a lowly 0-4 for the first time since 1968.
“We are in uncharted territory and the water is dangerous right now,” Roethlisberger expressed. “It stings. I have to hope and believe we can turn it around. That’s the approach I’m going to take this week and next week. I’m going to do the best I can to lead these guys and let them see how I go about my job.”
Most would agree that the Jaguars are the worst team in the league, losing by an average of 24 points per game, however the Steelers haven’t been much better. Pittsburgh has trailed by double-digits at least once in each of their four losses. The Steelers running game has been dreadful with their highest rushing total of season being a meager 57 yard by Le’Veon Bell’s on Sunday against the Vikings. On the defensive side Pittsburgh has yet to cause a turnover this year. On the bright side the Steelers get to play the Cleveland Browns two times this year.
