Panic time in Pittsburgh? Steelers exploring options after disastrous 0-2 start

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin says it's not time to panic, but it is time for his struggling team to consider switching it up.

The Steelers fell to 0-2 with a 20-10 loss to Cincinnati on Monday night and have scored just 19 points in two games. Tomlin says each one of his players shares the responsibility of turning things around and indicated he's open to tinkering with the lineup to get results.

Pittsburgh hasn't started a season 0-3 since 1988 but must get ready for unbeaten Chicago (2-0) on Sunday night. Help could be on the way. Tight end Heath Miller is expected to practice this week, another important step in his recovery from major knee surgery.
