Time on my hands as I'm traveling on a Sunday for work and sitting in a hotel room. I recall week 3 always being a tough one for the Steelers, so I did a bit of investigating of Week 3 results during Tomlin's tenure.

5-6 in Week 3
9 of 11 games were away (strange scheduling oddity)
Several embarrassing losses

2017 - Embarrassment against Bears in Chicago
2016 - Thoroughly embarrassed by a rooke QB...34-3 against Eagles @ Philly
2015 - Win 12-6 against lowly Rams in Field Goal Fest in St. Louis
2014 - Beat Carolina 37-19 in Carolina
2013 - Embarrassed 40-23 by Bears in Pittsburgh
2012 - Loss to the eventual 4-12 Raiders in Oakland
2011 - Win close @ 2-14 Indy 23-20
2010 - Win handily in TB without Ben 38-13
2009 - Lose to the Bengals in Cincy by 3 after being outscored 14-0 in the 4th quarter
2008 - Debacle against the Eagles in Philly...one of the worst performances I've seen that nearly killed Ben.
2007 - Beat the Niners soundly 37-16 in Pittsburgh

Tomlin's inability to get the team ready to play on the road especially against bad teams is infuriating to say the least. I didn't use the phrase "inferior" because I haven't seen any evidence this season of them being a "superior" team.

Interestingly enough, 2008 was a SB winning year and last year we went to the AFCC.

It's clear Tomlin doesn't prioritize games like these. A bye/home field is just a "nice to have" and not a goal, even with a team expected to contend for a title.

8 of those games non conference NFC games.
Only one division game.
