Steelers Defensive Coverage Stats Versus Eagles – Preseason Week 1

Below are the coverage stats for the Pittsburgh Steelers following their Thursday night preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

I always like to warn with these stats that Steelers play a whole lot of zone coverage so don\’t get so caught up in completion percentages. The best thing to look at is the length of the completions and the yards after catch number in my opinion. The Steelers defense prides itself on wrapping up quickly after the catch and not allowing a lot of YAC.

Of course the two big plays against cornerback Curtis Brown hurt as those two both went for touchdowns and totaled out for 114 of the Eagles 287 passing yards

On a positiver note, the Eagles only passed for 37 first half yards on 8 completions. 17 of those 37 yards came after the catch.
