Steelers Vs. Bengals Week 7 Key Matchups

Film Room: Pressure Ruins Steelers’ Chances For Splash Plays

Playaction is something the Pittsburgh Steelers have done little of this season. Heading into the Jaguars’ game, Ben Roethlisberger had used it the second-fewest of any quarterback in the league. It seems like the Steelers tried to change that approach into Sunday. And the chances were there. But pressure wrecked…

As we will do every week, breaking down the sacks the Pittsburgh Steelers allowed against the Chicago Bears. Three of them to examine this time around. 1. 3rd and 8, 6:23 1st. 11 personnel (empty). Five block vs five rush. Ben Roethlisberger has pretty much already stole my thunder on…


Steelers Vs Bears Winners/Losers

*fires self into the sun* WINNERS Javon Hargrave: Hargrave was basically the only defender to consistently make a positive impact today. Even when doubled or triple-teamed, he still found ways to get pressure and racked up his second sack of the season. He’s a star in my eyes and soon…
