Steelers vs Ravens Film Review: Cortez Allen

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen was signed to a new contract on the eve of the start of the 2014 season in a move no doubt prompted by the very real concern that they had virtually no cornerbacks signed through the 2015 season.

WR Runs Prove Effective For Steelers Offense

When it came to the ground game, the Pittsburgh Steelers remained fairly traditional in attacking the Cleveland Browns’ front seven in the season opener.

Steelers Throwing Different Players, Looks At The Problem

Traditionally, Dick LeBeau’s Pittsburgh Steelers defense has not often deviated far from standard personnel looks, nor engaged in an excessive amount of rotation outside of the defensive line during a game.
