Steelers vs. Giants, Week 9: Pittsburgh makes statement with victory

Jeff Zelevansky

The Pittsburgh Steelers made a statement in their 24-20 come-from-behind victory over the New York Giants.

The Pittsburgh Steelers erased a 10-point fourth quarter deficit and came away with a huge 24-20 road victory over the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants on Sunday. Isaac Redman's 1-yard touchdown plunge with 4:05 left proved to be the game-winner, and it was Redman who salted the game away with a 28-yard run. The Steelers' running back rushed for 147 yards on the day.

The victory was a statement for Pittsburgh, who has now won three straight games after starting the season 2-3. The Steelers appear to be finding their groove, which could be a scary thing for the rest of the AFC North according to SB Nation's Steelers blog Behind the Steel Curtain:

The Steelers are back. They are back and will not be denied. Not by injuries to Antonio Brown early in the game, not by the Super Bowl Champs, not by SuperStorm Sandy, and not by Roger Goodell and his Referees...

The Steelers are back. And the AFC North had better be ready.

Pittsburgh plays the hapless Kansas City Chiefs in Week 10 before finishing the season with five divisional games in their last seven. That includes two contests against the Baltimore Ravens, who are currently one game ahead of the Steelers in their division.
