The Pittsburgh Steelers are now 2-2 since running back Le’Veon Bell returned from his three-game suspension and are currently caught in a two-game losing skid.
Bell has had just about enough of the losing and knows adjustments need to be made.
“We’re nowhere where we need to be,” Bell told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler after Pittsburgh’s 27-16 loss to the New England Patriots.
Pittsburgh’s offense could only get into the end zone once Sunday afternoon despite racking up 375 yards of total offense. Bell rushed for only 81 yards on 21 carries, but reeled in 10 passes for 68 yards. It might have been a good day for Bell’s fantasy owners, but it wasn’t enough to earn a victory.
Fortunately, Pittsburgh will have a week off to get healthy and make adjustments. That bye week probably couldn’t have come at a better time, especially with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger out with a meniscus injury.
The Steelers will get their chance to show they’re getting closer to Bell’s expectations Nov. 6 against Baltimore.
