--The Steelers would tie their longest losing streak in 40 years if they fall to Green Bay on Sunday. They have hit six-games skids in 1999 and in 1988. Their longest skid before that came in 1969, Chuck Noll's first year as their coach, when they won their opener and lost their remaining 13 games.
--The Steelers allowed only two passes longer than 40 yards last season. They have allowed seven this season, five during their current losing streak.
BY THE NUMBERS
291 -- Consecutive sellouts of Steelers games in Pittsburgh, starting Nov. 5, 1972, vs. Cincinnati.
QUOTE TO NOTE
"We're a 6-7 team, which is a losing record at this point, so it's disappointing. It hacks you off." -- Coach Mike Tomlin.
