Did the Steelers hit bottom with the loss to the Raiders?

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had better teams lose to the Oakland Raiders, so it should come as no surprise that this one lost Sunday.

The first play set the tone.

This season is over. Hopefully, that game was the bottom.

Up next, a test against the Patriots.
