Below is the defensive participation chart for the Pittsburgh Steelers week 16 Saturday game versus the St. Louis Rams at Heinz Field.
The Steelers were in their base defense for 50 of the 62 non-penalty plays Saturday against the Rams. Only 12 times they were in nickel and we did not see any other sub-packages as Cortez Allen did not see one defensive snap in the game. That was the first game that Allen has not seen action on defense since week 6.
Cameron Heyward had 14 snaps and they came at both end positions. 6 of those 14 came on the final defensive series. James Farrior and Larry Foote continue there inside rotation as it seems Farrior gets two series and then Foote gets one.
Ryan Mundy got some late field time as Troy Polamalu was pulled for the final defensive series.
