The Pittsburgh Steelers will look to take on the 0-10 Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, but the scrum that took place last Thursday night against the Cleveland Browns is still a trending topic. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin took to the podium today to explain why he didn’t have much to say after the game.

“It had little to no barring to determining the outcome of the game,” Tomlin said. It’s easy to seek comfort in that sidebar distraction and not talk about what really needs to be talked about from our prospective, is that we played a losing football game.”

Tomlin expanded his thoughts on the kicking game hiccups (mishandling a snap that led to a missed field goal), lack of efficiency when plays were extended, and of course the amount of injuries that piled up throughout the course of the game at the skilled positions. One prominent injury included wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster who not only suffered a concussion, but also has a knee injury. His status for Sunday is uncertain. Diontae Johnson, James Conner, Artie Burns, and Ola Adeniyi are also up in the air right now. On the bright side, running back Benny Snell Jr. may be able to suit up after missing the last two weeks.
