Steelers Defensive Coverage Stats Versus Eagles – Preseason Game 2

Below are the individual coverage stats and totals from the Thursday night preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The top table is by play and consist of which Eagles player was targeted with the pass, the yards gained on the play and the yards after the catch the receiver had on the play. Also included is the number of pass rushers the Steelers used on the play and if they blitzed or not on the play. I have included the down and distance as well. There were two plays were it was impossible to tell who really had coverage. One was incomplete and the other was the 40-yard gain to the running back Lewis on the Eagles first touchdown drive.

Classic Steelers defense tonight as they allow the underneath stuff and confuse with blitzes and coverages. 40 of the 241 yards allowed came late on the dump-off to the running back. This was also 43 of the 100 yards after catch as well and was the only passing play of 20 yards or more allowed on the night.

The bottom table shows the totals for each defensive player thrown at in coverage for the Steelers as well as the completion percentage and yards per attempt.

Let me know if you find any discrepancies.

  • mrwirez

    I missed the game, who were the best corners?? Usually william gay sucks.

  • cecka

    suprisingly keenan lewis was good. Niles sucked and also Donovan was trash. Clark and Mundy were very good.

  • Shawn

    I only see 3 of the 4 INTs. Where’s Clark?

  • jpbucco

    We must have watched a different game, I thought Warren looked solid.

  • SteelersDepot

    Was the benefactor of a bad throw & was not main one in coverage that play. This is straight coverage stats.

  • Phantaskippy

    He was good, very good. 4.5 ypa is great, and less than 2 yards after each catch. He played exactly like a Dick LeBeau defense corner.

  • Clint Martin

    Warren got the ball his way all night he tackles everything and stops it quickly. Solid corner play!

  • Clint Martin

    Donavan Warren recorded 5 tackles 1/2 sack and nearly intercepted a pass breaking up a touchdown pass. But he is Trash? I don’t get that comment, please explain your view.

  • Steve Duncan

    How was Warren trash? He had a solid game.
