Steelers Week 12 rooting guide: Tanking edition

It’s almost Thanksgiving and what should the Pittsburgh Steelers and their fans be thankful for this year? Personally, I’m thankful that there is always another season and even though this year has been a wash, there is always 2023.

Typically this time of year is when we start our rooting guide because Pittsburgh is in the thick of the playoff hunt but things are different this year. Now understand, we are in no way rooting for the Steelers to lose. But if any of you out there are in full tanking mode, here’s your guide to the weekend’s games.

This one is tough as both teams are currently picking ahead of the Steelers. But with the Raiders on the schedule, we are rooting for the Seahawks here to give Pittsburgh a bit of a buffer.
