Mike Tomlin says changes are coming for the Pittsburgh Steelers after they dropped to 5-5-1 with Sunday's blowout loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

"We just stunk the place up," Tomlin said. "When you play the way that we played and the score is as lopsided as it is, that's just the reality of it.

"... What you can't do is continue to do the things that you've been doing and expect a different result. We're open to some schematic changes. We're open to some personnel changes, obviously. They won't be drastic in nature, probably more subtle in nature, but hopefully significant. Significant in a positive way."

Tomlin said the changes will come in both what the Steelers do and who they do it with.
