about the officiating. Or lament the turnovers and missed opportunities over the last month that have the Pittsburgh Steelers on the outside of the playoffs looking in heading into Week 17.The longtime head coach doesn’t see the point in it. Spending too much time looking back and not enough time looking forward can be just as dangerous as any of the missteps or handful of questionable calls that have hit the Steelers (8-6-1) during a slide that’s seen them drop four of five to fall behind Baltimore for the top spot in the AFC North.“The bottom line is when they’re done [url=http://www.thesteelersclub.com/dermontti-dawson-jersey/]Dermontti Dawson Jersey[/url] , they’re done, you move on,” Tomlin said Tuesday. “What truly defines you (are) the plays that lie ahead.”Maybe, but the sting of a 31-28 loss on the road in New Orleans on Sunday could linger well into the offseason if Pittsburgh can’t slip past the Ravens to reach the playoffs for the fifth straight year. The Steelers need to beat Cincinnati and hope Cleveland beats Baltimore on the road after letting another fourth-quarter lead slip away against the Saints.Pittsburgh had its chances. But its final three possessions in New Orleans ended with two fumbles sandwiched around a fake punt in which up back Roosevelt Nix was stopped a foot short of a first down that would have allowed the Steelers to bleed the clock. The Saints responded by driving for the go-ahead score, one abetted by a fourth-down pass interference call against cornerback Joe Haden that gave New Orleans a first down.Several Steelers contended Drew Brees‘ pass intended for Michael Thomas was tipped at the line, which would have negated the penalty. The league reviewed it and agreed with the call on the field. So did Tomlin, at least to a point: Tomlin doesn’t believe defensive end Stephon Tuitt got a hand on the ball either, but did offer an addendum.“I also don’t believe it was (pass interference),” he said.It was the second pass interference call against Haden on the day. He drew a 33-yard penalty in the first quarter when officials ruled he illegally prevented New Orleans running back Alvin Kamara from trying to haul in a Brees pass that sailed well over the head of both players. New Orleans running back Mark Ingram bulled over from 1 yard on the next play.Tomlin [url=http://www.thesteelersclub.com/jack-ham-jersey/]Jack Ham Jersey[/url] , a member of the NFL’s competition committee known to critique the officiating at times, refused to blame his team’s current position on one iffy call. Asked to describe how a team responds to a tough break, the father of three shrugged.“How do you deal with it when your kids don’t listen?” Tomlin said. “You move on. You focus on the things within your control.”That’s an approach — for this week anyway — that might not have any impact on whether the Steelers play into January. The beat-up Bengals (6-9) have won a single game since Halloween and oddsmakers have already made Pittsburgh a heavy favorite. Yet, even a convincing win won’t matter if the Ravens turn back the Browns and the season-ending matchup between Indianapolis and Tennessee on Sunday night ends in a tie.Tomlin pointed out Sunday won’t be any different than any other weekend, when the results from other games have a ripple effect on the course of Pittsburgh’s season. It’s just that it will be monitored more closely. He’s got enough to worry about without spending the day glancing up at the scoreboard.The loss in New Orleans wasn’t much different than most of the five defeats that came before it. The Steelers turned over the ball more than they took it away and couldn’t get a defensive stop when they absolutely needed one.Five of Pittsburgh’s six losses have come by a touchdown or less. The margin for error is small. Too often the Steelers have been on the wrong side it.“We’re not going to make it to be something mystical, or pretend it’s something out of our control,” Tomlin said. “It is preparation, detail, schematics [url=http://www.thesteelersclub.com/jack-lambert-jersey/]Jack Lambert Jersey[/url] , coaching. All of those things are very tangible. We’ve fallen short for a variety or myriad of reasons.”NOTES: S Sean Davis (quadriceps) and LB Vince Williams (toe) could be limited early in the week after getting hurt in New Orleans. … Tomlin is optimistic RB James Conner could be available. Conner has missed each of the last three games. … Tomlin defended his decision to call for a fake punt on fourth-and-5 at the Pittsburgh 42 with just over four minutes to play. “We’re not going to play not to lose,” Tomlin said. “We’re going to play to win. The guys understand it. That’s just how we live.” The Pittsburgh Steelers are back, and we keep you up to date with those who aren’t able to watch the game live."

This game is often referred to as the “final dress rehearsal” where some starters will play for almost a half before giving way to the backups to mop up the second half.With fans waiting on the edge of their seats to see the starters for the last time before the regular season, it was Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers’ offense who won the opening coin toss and elected to start the game with the football.Roethlisberger and company took over at the 21 yard line, and worked a lot of no huddle offense throughout the opening drive. However, after an opening play run, the Steelers went pass-happy and failed to gain a second first down on 3rd and 10, putting Jordan Berry on the field for early action.The Steelers’ defense stood tall on their first action of the game [url=http://www.thesteelersclub.com/mike-webster-jersey/]Mike Webster Jersey[/url] , and after gifting Marcus Mariota and company a first down with back-to-back penalties, they forced a Tennessee punt. Berry’s punt pinned the Titans’ offense deep in their own end, and two plays later Stephon Tuitt engulfed Mariota for the safety, giving Pittsburgh an early 2-0 lead.The Steelers then received the free kick, and, with Roethlisberger still in the game, the offense mixed some quality James Conner runs and JuJu Smith-Schuster receptions to move into the red-zone for the first time. Once there, it took Roethlisberger just one play to hit Smith-Schuster for the touchdown.The Steelers bypassed the extra point try and went for the two-point conversion. Roethlisberger dumped the pass to Jaylen Samuels, but Samuels slipped on the wet turf and was stopped short.After more defensive dominance by the Steelers [url=http://www.thesteelersclub.com/mel-blount-jersey/]Mel Blount Jersey[/url] , it was Mason Rudolph getting the backup spot in the game with 2:51 left in the opening quarter. After a nifty Jaylen Samuels run, Rudolph went over the top and hit James Washington for another touchdown.Chris Boswell nailed the extra point kick to make the score 15-0 with 1:52 left in the first quarter.The Titans have the ball, and are driving, to end the quarter.
