PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is modifying his jersey JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey White , using a marker to add an “s” to the end of his last name.Safety Sean Davis is mulling a present or two to Cleveland quarterback Baker Mayfield, promising to send the rookie “a little something something” if the Browns can beat the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday and open the door for the Steelers to win a third straight AFC North title.“Pray for Cleveland,” Davis said with a smile. “Pray for the Browns.”Article continues below ...First things first, however. The only way the outcome in Baltimore matters to the Steelers is if Pittsburgh (8-6-1) manages to get by reeling Cincinnati (6-9).The two games between the four division rivals will unfold simultaneously, but the veteran Steelers are cautioning it’s unwise to get caught watching the scoreboard and ignoring the play right in front of you.“It’s out of our control,” Pittsburgh guard David DeCastro. “You’re going to feel a lot worse than you do now if you were to go out there and see Baltimore lose and us lose too. It’s definitely deflating (to be in this position). It’s been a long season. We’ve put forth a lot of effort.”Just not enough to stem a late swoon that’s left the Steelers’ postseason chances precarious at best. Pittsburgh has dropped four of five since its 7-2-1 start, all four losses coming during games the Steelers led in the second half, the latest a 31-28 defeat on the road in New Orleans last Sunday that dropped Pittsburgh to second place behind the Ravens.The game followed a troubling pattern for the Steelers. Pittsburgh moved the ball only to make critical mistakes at critical times. The Steelers’ final three possessions against the Saints ended with two fumbles and a fake punt that ended up a half-yard short of a first down.Throw in a pair of questionable pass interference calls against cornerback Joe Haden — both of which set up New Orleans touchdowns — and the Steelers find themselves in danger of missing the postseason for the first time since 2013.“We’re all aware of the situation,” center Maurkice Pouncey said. “We know what we’ve got to do and hopefully it works out.”Any shot at the Bengals returning to the playoffs ended weeks ago, their season undone by injuries — namely to quarterback Andy Dalton and wide receiver A.J. Green — and a defense that ranks as the worst in franchise history. The main question heading into the finale is whether this is head coach Marvin Lewis’ final game.The Bengals haven’t reached the postseason since 2015, though Lewis said he doesn’t believe the outcome on Sunday will have any effect on his future.Players are waiting to see how it shakes out.“People ask me, ‘Is Marvin going to be back?’ — just people out there in the world,” defensive end Jordan Willis said. “And I’m like , ‘I have no idea.’ My dad had to tell me the (defensive) coordinator was fired, and he’s in Kansas City. He called and told me that Teryl Austin was fired. So that just goes to show how much we know and don’t know as players.”THE LONG AND WINDING ROADThe Bengals wrap up one of their most disappointing seasons under Lewis. They started 4-1 and could have taken control of the division by holding on to beat Pittsburgh on Oct. 14, but Brown turned a short pass into a 31-yard touchdown with 10 seconds left for a 28-21 win that started the plummet — eight losses in the past 10 games. After surging ahead of the AFC North to start the season, they’re finishing at the bottom of the division for only the second time under Lewis.“It’s been a roller-coaster season, for sure,” cornerback Darqueze Dennard said. “We definitely thought it would be a different season.”ANOTHER UPSET?The Bengals knocked the rival Ravens out of the playoffs with a 31-27 win in Baltimore last year, opening a spot for Buffalo to make the postseason. Now they’re in position to end Pittsburgh’s season, but there’s a big difference from last year’s finale. Cincinnati has 15 players on injured reserve. Backup quarterback Jeff Driskel completed only 2 of 6 passes for 3 yards in the first half of a 26-18 loss at Cleveland last Sunday, an indication of how far they’ve fallen.They’re more focused on simply playing well against the Steelers, who have won seven straight and 10 of 11 in the series.“I don’t think it has much to do with the spoiler role,” quarterback Jeff Driskel said.NUMBERS GAMEBen Roethlisberger can become the first quarterback in franchise history to lead the NFL in passing yards if he maintains his lead over Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes.Roethlisberger, who shared the passing title with New Orleans’ Drew Brees in 2014, has 4 T. J. Watt Jersey White ,842 yards through 15 games, 26 yards ahead of Mahomes.Roethlisberger’s 33 touchdown passes this season are a franchise record, as are his 421 completions. The 36-year-old Roethlisberger — who has flirted with the idea of retirement in the past — plans to return in 2019.DeCastro believes Roethlisberger is throwing the ball as good as ever, adding the quarterback’s prolific output is also part of a collaborative process.“(The receivers) make him better by getting open and we make him better by blocking for him,” DeCastro said. “It all works together. We pride ourselves in having a good offense and caring about team football.” PITTSBURGH (AP) — The word Ramon Foster chose wasn’t by accident.Asked what he expects the identity of the Pittsburgh Steelers to be in 2019 following the high-profile departures of star wide receiver Antonio Brown and versatile running back Le’Veon Bell , the second-longest tenured member of the roster behind quarterback Ben Roethlisberger offered a typically blunt assessment.“A team,” the left guard said. “When you see us on the field. The way we play offense, defense, special teams, you should know that we’re a team. It’s not the teams that have 10 Pro Bowlers on the team that wins the Super Bowl most of the time. It’s the team that you can usually watch them and see that they’re playing team ball.”Something that wasn’t always the case during the waning days of the “Killer Bs” era. The Steelers spent a significant portion of 2018 talking about Brown’s latest meltdown or Bell’s extended absence.Though they insisted those issues didn’t spill onto the field, sometimes they did. Brown’s very public offseason divorce began when he went AWOL before a must-win regular-season finale against Cincinnati following a dust-up with Roethlisberger and was benched by coach Mike Tomlin. The Steelers found a way to edge the Bengals anyway with Brown standing in a fur coat on the sideline , a fitting image for the way the perennial All-Pro isolated himself from the rest of the roster. While the victory over Cincinnati wasn’t enough for Pittsburgh to avoid missing the playoffs for the first time since 2013, it also served as a jumping off point of sorts. The Steelers believe they can survive and even thrive with Brown now in Oakland and Bell getting paid by the New York Jets.“AB is a Hall of Fame player Womens James Conner Jersey , so there’s going to be some things that change,” center Maurkice Pouncey said. “But we have a great receiving corps here that works really, really hard, and the guys are really, really locked in. They have a lot to prove. When you lose a Hall of Fame player the next guy has to step up.”Roethlisberger won’t lack for candidates. The Steelers signed free agent wide receiver Donte Moncrief and drafted speedy Diontae Johnson in the third round to join a unit that includes JuJu Smith-Schuster and James Washington. The group is dedicating the season to wide receivers coach Darryl Drake. The popular Drake — a longtime friend and mentor to Tomlin — died on Aug. 11 . One of the last things Drake told his players before his passing was “never choose good when great is available.” It’s a lesson Smith-Schuster and his teammates are taking to heart.“Don’t settle for less, don’t be satisfied with what you have now,” Smith-Schuster said. “When great is out there, go achieve it.”Some things to look for as Pittsburgh opens what it hopes is a quietly successful season on Sept. 8 in New England:BEN BEING BENComing off his second NFL passing title, the 37-year-old Roethlisberger felt good enough about the core surrounding him to sign a contract extension that runs through 2021. Roethlisberger is perhaps in the best shape of his career. In a division featuring rising young quarterbacks in Cleveland and Baltimore, he’s in no mood to pass along the torch. After reaching the Super Bowl three times in his first seven seasons, he hasn’t returned to the sport’s biggest stage in nearly a decade despite his gaudy statistics.“I want to win Super Bowls,” Roethlisberger said. “Truthfully, that should be all of our motivation because that’s what’s driving me right now.”BULLISH BUSHAfter attempting to use veteran Jon Bostic as a Band-Aid at inside linebacker with Ryan Shazier’s career in jeopardy due to a spinal injury suffered in December T. J. Watt Jersey , 2017, Pittsburgh began the process of moving on when it traded up in the first round to grab linebacker Devin Bush. At 5-foot-11 and 234 pounds, Bush makes up for in tenacity what he lacks in size. He made 10 tackles in his preseason debut , shedding blocks from 300-pound linemen with ease and showcasing precocious instincts.“I just love to make plays,” Bush said. “I love to play football.”Good thing, because Pittsburgh’s ability to stay in the thick of the AFC North will rely heavily on Bush’s ability to become a disruptive force in the middle of the defense.BOUNCE BACK BOZ?The Steelers felt so confident in kicker Chris Boswell following a Pro Bowl season in 2017 they rewarded him with a four-year contract. fighting for a roster spot after making just 13 of 20 field goals last season. A handful of misses — most notably a botched 40-yard attempt on the final play in Oakland in December — played a significant factor in Pittsburgh’s slide from 7-2-1 to missing the postseason. Boswell promised to get right in the offseason and he’s been lights out during camp.Considering Pittsburgh’s margin for error likely decreased with Brown gone, the team can’t afford to squander scoring opportunities. Boswell returning to his 2017 form would help.WEST COAST WOESThe Steelers have struggled when heading west in recent years; look to losses in Denver and Oakland in 2018— two teams that finished a combined 10-22 — as proof. Pittsburgh will play west of the Rockies three times in 2019 when it makes trips to San Francisco, Los Angeles and Arizona. Anything less than a 2-1 mark in those games would negatively impact the Steelers’ shot at getting back to the playoffs.
