Steelers Week 13 Coverage Stats Versus Bengals

Below are the Steelers coverage stats for the week 13 Sunday win against the Cincinnati Bengals. These stats are broken down by play and include down and distance, line of scrimmage, direction, yards gained, yards after catch, personnel the offense used, defensive package, number of pass rushers and whether or not the defense blitzed on the play.

The Steelers defense held both Andy Dalton and Bruce Gradkowski under a 50% completion rate on the day. 5 of the 14 completions were of the screen variety. The secondary also allowed only 2 explosive plays of 20 yards or more on the afternoon, with the first one coming on the Bengals first pass play of the day on a fake reverse pass to A.J. Green. Green was targeted 11 times on the day and was covered all day by Ike Taylor. Green caught 6 passes for 87 yards and the 1 touchdown of 11 yards. Taylor did get redemption of sorts as he picked off a pass intended for Green from Gradkowski late in the game.

The coverage as a whole allowed 61 yards after the catch on the 14 completions. 34 of those 61 yards came on the 5 screen completions.
