Takes back seat to running game versus Ravens

Takes back seat to running game versus Ravens

After three games of inconsistent and pass-heavy performances, the Steelers handed the ball off to Le'Veon Bell and let the offense flow from there. He served three tours in Afghanistan and was awarded a Bronze Star for valor. But getting four sacks and seven tackles for loss in Baltimore is never easy. The details, the technique, the fundamentals, taking the proper angles for the run, taking the proper angles for the pass, tackling well.

A balanced offensive attack set the stage early for the Steelers. Pittsburgh was behind 17-7 at halftime but tied the game in the fourth quarter on a Le'Veon Bell touchdown run.

The Pittsburgh Steelers tried to make good after last week's national anthem fiasco. If the Steelers wish to contend for a championship, they must become consistent on offense and maintain a strong defense. That was as close as they would get, and the Steelers had to settle for another Boswell field goal, this one from 49 yards out to extend the lead to 6-0. Its defense must slow down the ground-eating tandem of DeMarco Murray, who had a 75-yard touchdown last week, and Derrick Henry. This time, it worked, Bell running through gaping holes and allowing the Steelers to control the clock. "It's one of those injuries that's just a little bit unpredictable". He's averaging 13.6 yards per catch. The defense was rabid and forcing points off of turnovers, and even when the offense wasn't clicking, it still featured players with championship experience. Brown will now finally be joined by Martavis Bryant in the receiving corps after he was suspended for the entire 2016 season.

The beginning of the regular season marked the first time since his rookie year that Bell went three consecutive games without once topping 100 total yards. Bell will get plenty of opportunities to grab quick passes and outlet balls. Roethlisberger may think so, but Brown sure doesn't. Weddle and the Ravens had their playoff hopes end with this bitter defeat against their longtime rivals. As a unit, the Ravens have the talent, speed, tenacity and hitting power to be absolutely disruptive and game-changing, but they're wearing down.

Joe Flacco's back-to-back interceptions in the fourth quarter were sparked by athletic plays by Shazier, but they wouldn't have happened without the pressure up front. The Ravens went for two, but after ruling Terrance West's run good, the officials reversed the call.

Prior to Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the public address announcer asked the crowd "to pray that we as a nation embrace kindness, unity, equality and justice for all Americans". Joe Flacco has six interceptions in four games, and has 10 straight games with a pick overall. Several times in a Week 3 loss to Chicago, Shazier found himself out of position because he overran his assignment, the most glaring on Jordan Howard's game-winning 19-yard touchdown run that saw Shazier diving futilely at Howard's feet as Shazier scrambled to get back to the spot he was supposed to be all along.
