MIAMI -- Just when you think the Steelers are legitimate Super Bowl contenders, this happens.

Now, they still might be well on their way to Houston in February, but not how they played against a pretty terrible Dolphins team Sunday.

Coming off convincing wins over the Chiefs and Jets to solidify themselves as one of the teams to beat in the AFC, the Steelers had any grandiose thoughts come crashing down with a convincing 30-15 loss in front of a bipartisan crowd of 65,351 on Sunday afternoon at Hard Rock Stadium.
