Steelers Week 14 Coverage Stats Versus Browns


Below are the Steelers coverage stats for the week 14 Thursday win against the Cleveland Browns. 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.

Keep in mind that the Steelers played quite a bit of zone coverage in this game so the coverage stats are not really reflective of play.

The Steelers defense held both Colt McCoy and Seneca Wallace to a 53% completion rate in the game and picked off 2 passes. It could have very easily been 5 interceptions. The defense did give up 3 explosive passing plays in the 1st quarter with 2 coming on the Browns opening drive.

William Gay was targeted 12 times and allowed 5 catches for 43 yards. He also had a redzone interception and should have had another on a deep ball into the endzone. He really played a great game and some nice tackles after the catch.

Troy Polamalu was the second most targeted and allowed 5 catches out of 7 targets. He did have a great interception and a nice pass break up in the game. The catches allowed mostly came with him in zone coverage so it is deceiving.

I only have Ike Taylor being targeted 2 times in the game.

I have just 58 yards allowed after catches.

    In your lower Coverage Stats by Player box who is N/A?!! I checked the roster and could find no one with that name!! Just kidding LOL!!!

    Nice job and very informative! Keep up the GREAT work!
    Thanks

    13 games in and I am totally confident with this secondary against any passing game in the league. Wow, who’d thought it back in August? Me!!!!! lol

    I like the whole D against anybody myself, so I am admittedly bias. But I am particularly excited by what’s happened in the secondary this year. Young guys, old guys, schemes & coaching, I think we’re ready for the Packers, the Saints, whoever…and that feels great.

    It does feel great, they are an excellent compliment to the front 7.

    I was a little worried about the safeties covering early in the year.But, they’re both so tough against the run and on blitz, I can live with a couple lapses in coverage every now and then.

    William Gay seems to be comfortable now, as is Keenan Lewis. I’m amazed how little Lewis gets targeted considering the number of snaps he’s getting in passing situations. I see ‘em lookin’ but they don’t throw it his way.

    Ike has been challenged by some great #1 WRs, and has held up well. I don’t think its really necessary, or wise for that matter, to have him following them all over the field when Lewis is in, but that’s on LeBeau…there’s comfort in 9 years.

    Ryan Mundy and Cortez Allen have made significant contributions in the dime. It looks like a group ready to compete with Brees and the Saints.
