Looking Back

Christina Rivers takes us back to the 1987 Steelers draft class in our weekly “Throwback Thursday” series, and how that year’s rookies impacted the franchise long-term.

SCU’s weekly “Season Recall” feature revisits the Steelers Week 3 drubbing of the Las Vegas Raiders, which was one of the few dominant performances by the Steelers in the early half of their 2023 schedule.

Finally, we go back and revisit some of the top plays of Steelers 2023 season. This week’s highlight reel has Joey Porter Jr. snagging his first interception as a pro, albeit in a preseason matchup with the Buffalo Bills.
