The Steelers (7-6) lost to the visiting San Diego Chargers, 34-24, on Sunday, their third loss in four games, despite having starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger at the helm.
Here's what Thorman had to say about the Steelers, who were ranked 10th last week:
12. Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 10, 7-6): Oy. The first Steelers team ever to lose to the Chargers in Pittsburgh during the regular season. That can't feel good.
Overall, SB Nation moved the New England Patriots into the top spot after their impressive 42-14 victory over the Houston Texans on Monday night. The Texans fell to No. 2 while the Denver Broncos, Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers rounded out the top five.
The Steelers play the No. 13-ranked Dallas Cowboys (4:25 p.m. ET on CBS) on Sunday.
