Steelers Defensive Coverage Stats Versus Bengals – Week 16

Below are the coverage stats for the Pittsburgh Steelers following their 13-10 loss Sunday to the Cincinnati Bengals.

The completion percentage of 60% is a bit higher than what you would like to see as is the yards per attempt of 6.95. The 5.29 yards after the catch is also a bit higher than what you would like to see, but as a whole the tackling was much better this week as opposed to last week in the loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

The two interceptions by Cortez Allen really makes the stats above more palatable. It is too bad that the Steelers offense couldn\’t capitalize on them.

Keenan Lewis played on one leg in this game and played well considering it. Most of his day was spent covering Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones, but he did allow the final long completion to wide receiver A.J. Green that set up the game-winning field goal.

Allen, who covered Green for a good majority of the game, was targeted 14 times in total and allowed 7 catches for 79 yards.

    Looked like they tried to pick on Cortez but what a good performance…almost Ike like except Allen caught his potential picks. :)
