The Pittsburgh Steelers were hit with turnovers once again as they dropped to 0-4 with their most recent loss. This week’s loss came at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings at Wembley Stadium in London. Entering the game, Minnesota was also winless.
Following the game, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger voiced his frustrations with the 0-4 start to the season, which is the worst start for the team since 1968, by saying that you could call Pittsburgh the worst team in the league.
“Right now, you could say we’re the worst team in the league,” Roethlisberger said, via CBS Sports. “That hurts.”
The good news for the Steelers is that they will now enter their bye week, so they have plenty of time to turn things around and get the team firing on all cylinders. Roethlisberger plans to take that time to step up and make sure the team comes out firing on all cylinders when they return to action in Week 6.
“We are in uncharted territory and the water is dangerous right now,” Roethlisberger said. “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.”
The rest of the AFC North is struggling at 2-2, so there is still plenty of opportunity for the Steelers to make up ground and find away to top the division by the end of the season, so the Pittsburgh fans should keep hope despite an ugly and disappointing start to the year.
