The Pittsburgh Steelers solely mustered up six factors in a 30-6 loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday and head coach Mike Tomlin was livid in his postgame press convention.
The Steelers scored two area objectives within the third quarter – it was the one scoring the crew did all day. Kenny Pickett left the sport early with a knee damage. Pittsburgh racked up 225 complete yards on 10 drives and allowed 451 yards on protection on the identical variety of drives.
Tomlin vowed there can be modifications coming.
“Hell yeah, there’s going to be modifications,” he mentioned through ESPN. “That was an unsightly product we put on the market immediately, and so we’re not going to do the identical issues and hope for a special end result. What these modifications are, we’ll put collectively a plan in preparation this week.”
It’s unclear what particularly that could be. Steelers offensive coordinator Matt Canada has come below fireplace in current weeks because the offense continues to sputter. The protection, which was imagined to be the crew’s sturdy swimsuit coming into the sport, was lit up by rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud.
Stroud was 16-for-30 with 306 passing yards and two landing passes. Texans operating again Devin Singletary had a landing cross as properly.
Nico Collins has seven catches on 9 targets for 168 yards and two touchdowns. Dalton Schultz added one landing to go together with his 42 receptions and a landing.
Pittsburgh got here into the sport with a -14 level differential regardless of having two wins. The crew hasn’t scored greater than 26 factors this season and haven’t topped 30 or extra factors since Nov. 20 final 12 months.
