Steelers Defensive Coverage Stats Versus Chargers – Week 14

Below are the coverage stats for the Pittsburgh Steelers following their 34-24 loss Sunday to the San Diego Chargers. The completion percentage of 51% looks good on paper, as does the 4.88 yards per attempt, but when you factor in the Chargers were 12 for 22 (55%) on 3rd downs and Philip Rivers was 11-of-19 (57.9%) 118 yards with 2 touchdowns on 3rd down, you can clearly see why the Steelers lost.

Curtis Brown was thrown at 6 times and allowed 6 receptions for 84 yards and a touchdown. 5 of those 6 were on 3rd down and all 5 of those moved the chains.

Cortez Allen was targeted 8 times in total and allowed 6 receptions for 86 yards. 3 of those 6 catches were on 3rd downs and all 3 moved chains.

Ignore the Ziggy Hood coverage stats.
