Pittsburgh’s proud pro football tradition was never just about the pigskin. It was about the community of fans that came to be known as Steelers Nation. It was the connection between town, team and stadium section mates that became strong as steel. It was the communion of excitement, shared experience and common purpose that brought together that cacophony of raised voices to chant the same, familiar refrain: “Here we go Steelers. Here we go!” But on Sunday, as the Steelers renewed their Turnpike rivalry with the hated Cleveland Browns – there was no we. The bulk of Steelers nation was missing – barred from attending due to the coronavirus pandemic. This is the surreal Steelers scene one lonely fan found amid that ocean of mostly empty yellow seats at Heinz Field – plus all the best takes and analysis as the red-hot, 5-0 Steelers face their biggest challenges yet: Titans and Ravens in back-to-back weeks. So listen up, Steelers fans!
