Steelers Mandatory Credit: Katie Stratman-USA TODAY Sports

It’s no secret that the Pittsburgh Steelers have not been particularly dominant this season, especially on the offensive side of the ball. But still, the team has a winning record and currently sits at second in the AFC North division – decidedly in postseason contention. And one particularly insane stat highlights just how unprecedented that is.

As ESPN Stats and Info points out, the Pittsburgh Steelers have done something that no other team in NFL history has ever accomplished: have a winning record despite getting out-gained in every game.

“The Steelers are the 34th team in NFL history to be out-gained by their opponent in each of their first 8 games of a season. They are the first to have a winning record through those 8 games. h/t @EliasSports,” ESPN Stats and Info said in a post on X, the social media website that was formerly known as Twitter.

It’s some pretty insane news about the Steelers and it certainly led to a lot of reactions on social media as a result.

Obviously, the Steelers would much prefer to get a little more production from its offense so that it wouldn’t have to win games like this, but they’ll surely be happy about their current record, all things considered.
