Steelers Film Room: Steve McLendon Vs Ravens

Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Steve McLendon had his worst game of the season against the Baltimore Ravens—and no, it wasn’t indicative of Justin Forsett’s 150-yard performance—so perhaps it’s a bit unfair for this to be my first breakdown for him of the season.

Completing the starting lineup are left guard Ramon Foster, a former undrafted…


Steelers Vs. Ravens Game Rewind – Second Half

Game notes for the final time of the 2014 season. The Pittsburgh Steelers 30-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the Wildcard round of the playoffs. Second Half – I know it’s Robber coverage but Troy Polamalu is playing awfully shallow on 3rd and 14. Ends up focusing on a…
