Pittsburgh Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin Reveals His Mantra to Maintain His Team’s Mental Health

December 23, 2020 2:56 am

Mike Tomlin’s Pittsburgh Steelers started their 2020 NFL campaign with a convincing 16-26 win over Joe Judge-led New York Giants. The Steelers went on to win their next 10 games including wins against the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens and the Philadelphia Eagles. However, their form of late has been anything but great.

The Steelers have lost their last three NFL outings, including a dismal 27-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. They remain at the summit of the AFC North Division table above the Browns and the Ravens with an 11-3 record. But their faltering form is turning out to be a cause for concern as we approach the playoffs.

Coach Mike Tomlin’s secret to keeping Pittsburgh Steelers stars in top form

Pittsburgh Steelers correspondent Aditi Kinkhabwala connected with coach Tomlin after Sunday’s shock defeat at the hands of the Bengals. They are currently on a three-game losing streak and are in dire need to sneak in a couple of wins before the regular season ends.

“We’ve got a lot of work to do. We’re not a good football group right now. And so we understand the consequences that come with that. We’re working on a short week. We’ve got to be better than what we’ve been. And that’s just the reality of it,” Tomlin said after their Week 15 loss.
