The Pittsburgh Steelers did not look very good after that loss to the Houston Texans last week, but it's amazing what a blowout win will do for you. The Steelers beat up on the Titans this past weekend, and that is reflected in the latest edition of the SB Nation 2011 NFL Power Rankings for Week 6, where they climb back into the top ten.

Pittsburgh is strange this year. One week, I think they're falling off and the next week they put out a dominant performance. Five touchdowns from your quarterback, plus that defense, will get it done.

Typically, yes it will. But the Steelers can't count on that type of performance from Big Ben every week, particularly if his injury continues to be an issue. Having said that, the defense seems to be rounding into form, and they have the chance of getting healthier from here. So the Steelers, even though they are just a week removed from a very ugly loss, are already trending upwards.
