There's something about this Steelers team that's growing on me.
Of course, when your team pulls off an upset win directed by the third-string quarterback like it did in Sunday's 25-13 victory over the Arizona Cardinals, it's easy to like them.
The Steelers are 4-2 and they still haven't played with Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant in the same lineup.
That offense can be scary good.
But what really has impressed me has been the play of the defense, generally thought to be a work in progress entering the season.
Yeah, the D gave up oodles of yards to Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, but the defense made the plays when it had to.
And, in case you forgot, the Cardinals entered the game and still have scored the most points in the NFL. And the Steelers have held the Patriots to their lowest total of the season so far.
It's only six games, and a lot still can happen, but right now, the Steelers are looking like a playoff contender (they'd be a wild-card team right now), if not a division contender.
So, while we're waiting for Ben, Bell and Bryant to take the field at the same time, let's also appreciate the strides the defense is making.
This could be the making of something special.
