AFC North. 0-1. Pittsburgh Steelers. 5. player. 55. <p>The Steelers really could have won that game against the Patriots. When the offense has Le’Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant back in the fold, there might not be a defense in the land that will be able to stop the Steelers.</p> <p>But the team won’t be elite if the defense doesn’t pick it up. After talking a big line about how they were going to defend Rob Gronkowski with “constant contact”, the Steelers failed to walk the walk. At times, they didn’t even walk over to cover Gronk.</p> <p>Steelers fans shouldn’t fret too much over the Week 1 loss, as this team is destined for double-digit wins in 2015.</p>

Next: 4. Seattle Seahawks
