You can’t complain about that, and with the Pittsburgh Steelers sitting at 0-4 after Sunday’s 34-27 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, it’s the first time since 1968 that the Steelers have started a season 0-4.

During the game, Ben Roethlisberger exited the game in the fourth quarter with a thumb injury, but as he does so often, he would eventually rally the Steelers back from a 34-10 deficit, and drove to the Vikings’ 10-yard line with 20 seconds left in the game and his team trailing 34-27.

But there would be no Big-Ben magic on this day, as he was strip-sacked and lost the ball and the game was over.

While an 0-4 start is typically a death sentence for a team’s playoff chances, given the lack of consistency shown by the three teams ahead of the Steelers in the AFC North, all of whom sit at 2-2, there’s no reason to think Pittsburgh isn’t making a run at some point and putting themselves in contention for the division crown.
