Happy Friday to yinz and welcome to Week 7 of the 2020 regular season.
The Pittsburgh Steelers obviously have a big road game on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, and we look forward to covering it for yinz from top to bottom as usual.
It’s been a crazy week for me again with Thursday morning being spent at the cancer center. Joy, oh, joy. The cable (internet and tv) was also out most of Wednesday morning and that made for a challenging day. What are you going to do, right? Oh well not your problem.
On Saturday, if I feel well enough to do so, I need to go vote and get a flu shot first thing. After that, I’ll be home the rest of the day watching football and getting ready for Sunday’s game between the Steelers and Titans.
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 6 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!

Here is the recap for last week’s Friday Night Five Questions.
Question 1: Kareem Hunt never got out of the starting blocks. His longest run was ten yards which was 25% of his 40 total rushing yards. 46.6% of Steelers Depot responders earned a point by taking the under of Hunt gaining 60 yards.
Question 2: Cleveland Brown defenders sacked Ben Roethlisberger twice. Alex Kozora reviewed game film and determined that Alejandro Villanueva was not responsible for either sack as both came through the right side of the offensive line. 39.7% of respondents earned a point on this question.
Question 3: Steelers Depot respondents named six Steelers who would have the longest play from the line of scrimmage. Chase Claypool’s 36-yard reception was the longest play against the Browns. A plurality of 37.9% earned a point by riding the Chase train.
Question 4: Steelers Depot presented four scenarios for the Steelers scoring over or under 27.5 points and scoring a touchdown on their first possession. The Steelers settled for a field goal on their first possession after officials determined Denzel Ward did not interfere with James Washington in the end zone. The Steelers scored 38 points well over 27.5. A healthy 62/1% of respondents earned a point on this question.
Question 5: JuJu Smith-Schuster received the most votes (36.2%) as the listed player who would have the most total yards from scrimmage. Chase Claypool ran a close second with 34.5% of the vote. James Conner received the least with just 29.3%. Their performance was inverse to the vote. JuJu gained just six total yards. Claypool gained 81 total yards. While Conner had 102 total yards.
Tiebreaker: The Steelers and Browns combined to score 45 total points. Another Browns touchdown and they would have gone over 51.5 total points. But the total was under. However, the tiebreaker did not factor in this week as we had a single winner.
One respondent hit the five-point weekly bonus this week.
Here are the consensus responses of Steelers Depot respondents compared to the correct answers:
|Questions||Hunt O/U 60 rushing yards||Villanueva Gives Up Sack||Steeler with Longest Play||Steelers score 27.5 and/or TD 1st drive||Steeler Gaining Most Yards|
|SD Consensus||OVER||YES||CLAYPOOL||>27.5/NO TD||JUJU|
|Correct Answers||UNDER||NO||CLAYPOOL||>27.5/NO TD||CONNER|
