Tim Benz, Mark Madden break down Steelers’ loss to Ravens, Penguins’ start, Pitt’s big win
We have so much on the plate in this week’s “Madden Monday.” Most of it has to do the Pittsburgh Steelers’ latest loss, this time to the Baltimore Ravens.
Baltimore won at Heinz Field Sunday by a final score of 26-23 in overtime, thanks to a game-winning field goal by Justin Tucker.
Mark Madden of 105.9 the X joins me to talk about where the Steelers go from here now that they have fallen to 1-4.
Quarterback Mason Rudolph has been concussed. So can Devlin Hodges really be the guy to take the wheel and drive the team moving forward?
We get into lots of other topics such as Mike Tomlin’s decision to kick the ball away to start overtime, why the coaches elected to brush off the wildcat offense again and the costly fumble by JuJu Smith-Schuster in overtime.
The defense made lots of big plays. It also couldn’t hold a fourth quarter lead on two separate occasions. And the offense didn’t do a good job of converting turnovers into touchdowns.
Beyond the Steelers’ problems, we also talk about the Penguins’ first two games, Sidney Crosby fighting and Pitt’s wild win over Duke.
