For Markus Wheaton, there was no hiding from the fact of his struggles in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ last game against the Cleveland Browns. That is because quarterback Ben Roethlisberger refused to shy away from him, targeting him a career-high 11 times, finishing up with only four catches for 33 yards.

Steelers vs Browns II Film Review: Cameron Heyward

Defensive end Cameron Heyward was the only player in the last game the Pittsburgh Steelers could count on to get to the quarterback with any kind of consistency—and even much of that was assisted by the coverage on the back end.
