The Pittsburgh Steelers dominated their opponents in the AFC North with a solid 12-4 record last season.

The Steelers’ defense completed third and held the second rank in their scoring defense with close to 20 points per game. Pittsburg won a total of 11 games straight but declined later. Their performance against Cleveland was weak during the playoffs.
