This is a phenomenon that has defied expectation. Are they a poor road team generally? Nope. The Steelers won road playoff games each of the past two seasons and posted winning road records two of the past three years.

Like a running back using his vision to find the most inviting gap in the defense, Tomlin came into his Tuesday press conference anticipating the Steelers’ issues in this department could become a theme for the week. So he brought it up without being asked.
Jones: 2017 Falcons a different team �� For a while at least there seemed to be a chance the Packers could threaten a comeback and evoke painful memories for the Falcons and their fans. But Atlanta refused to let that happen in the opening game at its new stadium, rolling to a 34-23 victory, and wideout Julio Jones made it clear the Falcons have moved on from their Super Bowl collapse, saying: Last year was last year.
