Calm has returned to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Left for dead after an 0-4 start the Steelers are back on the radar after two straight wins including a had-to-have-it victory over rival Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Up next is a trip to The Black Hole for a Week 8 meeting with the Oakland Raiders. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger spoke about the team's uphill climb this week on "The Rich Eisen Podcast." "We were getting better every week. I know it wasn't showing on the win-loss column but every week we were getting a little bit better" Roethlisberger said of the team's winless start. "I think the biggest issue was offensively we were just turning the ball over too much. And we eliminated that the last two weeks." The turnover issue went both ways. While the offense made mistakes the defense failed to create a turnover until Week 5. Roethlisberger told Eisen it was like "we were shooting ourselves in both feet." Roethlisberger was asked how the return of running back Le'Veon Bell has helped the offense.
