Happy Friday to yinz and welcome to Week 6 of the 2020 regular season.
The Pittsburgh Steelers obviously have a big game on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns and we look forward to covering it from top to bottom as usual.
It’s been a fun day for me today as my main computer lost a hard drive. Its all back together now and just working on getting programs reinstalled. Thank God have I four computers in the house.
As usual, we have five questions and a tiebreaker for yinz to answer ahead of the Steelers game on Sunday and there is money to be won for doing just that. Below the weekly five questions is a recap of the Week 5 questions along with the declared winner from our very own David Orochena (@subBurgher).
Make sure you continue to check the site on a regular basis leading up to Sunday’s game as we have a lot more content coming for all to read. It’s going to be a busy and exciting weekend.
Thank you to all who continue to support the site regularly. It’s been a great start to the 2020 season for us on Steelers Depot and we do not take that for granted.
Have a blessed and safe weekend! Peace and love, peace and love!

Tiebreaker – Over/under 51.5 total points scored in Steelers versus Browns on Sunday?
Here is the recap for last week’s Friday Night Five Questions.
Question 1: Ben Roethlisberger threw 239 passing yards against the Philadelphia Eagles. Even if we added Chase Claypool’s 42-yard reception that officials erased with a bogus push off penalty, Ben would still be under 281.5 passing yards. Steelers Depot respondents did well on this question. 54.8% took the under and received a point for this question.
Question 2: Respondents named six different Steelers who they predicted would register the longest play from scrimmage against the Eagles. Chase Claypool (30.6%) and JuJu Smith-Schuster (29.0%) led the list. Respondents also named Diontae Johnson, James Washington, Anthony McFarland, and Eric Ebron. However, no one predicted Ray-Ray McCloud recording the longest offensive play with is 58-yard scamper around the right end. The Steelers now have two players with runs of 50 yards or more with Ray-Ray and James Conner earlier this season. The last time a Steelers player ran for more than 50 yards was 2016 when Darrius Heyward-Bey’s ran for 60-yards on a rush.
Question 3: Ray-Ray McCloud ran 58 yards but did not score a touchdown as he was tackled at the five-yard line. 48.4% received a point by answering false to this question.
Question 4: Steelers Depot asked who would have the most total yards from scrimmage from a list of three players. Anthony McFarland gained six yards on three carries. Vance McDonald caught one pass for four yards. James Washington caught three passes for 25 yards. 62.9% of respondents picked Washington and picked up a point.
Question 5: The fifth question presented four scenarios for respondents to consider. 32.3% correctly predicted that the Steelers would score 30 points and fail to score a touchdown on their opening offensive possession. The Steelers punted on their first possession but did score a TD on their second drive.
Tiebreaker: The Steelers-Eagles game opened with a 47 over/under for total points but was down to 44.5 by game time. Steelers Depot respondent’s median response was 47. Solsunforge came the closest by predicting the Eagles and Steelers combining to score 59 points. The 67 total points in this game exceeded everyone’s expectations. However, the tiebreaker did not come into play this week as we had a clear winner after scoring the five questions.
No one hit the five-point weekly bonus this week. Ray-Ray McCloud eliminated that possibility (see Q2).
Here are the consensus responses of Steelers Depot respondents compared to the correct answers:
|Questions||Ben O/U 281.5 passing yards||Steeler with longest off. play||Longest play results in TD||Player with most total yards||Steelers score 30 and/or TD 1st drive|
|SD Consensus||UNDER||CLAYPOOL||TRUE||WASHINGTON||<30/No TD|
|Correct Answers||UNDER||RAY-RAY||FALSE||WASHINGTON||>30/No TD|
Paul Brannigan got four of five questions correct. He just missed question two like everyone else. Kudos! Contact me so I can transfer your winnings via PayPal. My twitter is @subBurgher.
