The Pittsburgh Steelers did not have a great day on and off the pitch. The Steelers suffered a 24-20 defeat against the New York Jets at home and things got worse off the pitch after some tragic news came in.
Pittsburgh Public Police revealed after the defeat that an unidentified man had suffered critical injuries after he fell from the escalator at the Acrisure Stadium on Sunday night. The incident was reported to have taken place around 4.45 P.M ET and the man eventually died from his injuries despite their best efforts to take him to a local hospital.

They are yet to find any links that would help them trace the identity of the Pittsburgh Steelers fan and will continue to pursue the truth.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have not had the best of starts to the NFL 2022/23 campaign as they slipped to a 1-3 record after their defeat against the New York Jets. They let a 13-10 lead slip in the final quarter of the game as Zach Wilson weaved his magic.
