The Steelers’ rushing attack was no accident

If the Bengals win, the winner of Sunday’s game between the Steelers and Browns will move a half-game ahead of the Ravens for first place in the AFC North standings.

• Does having offensive coordinator Matt Canada on the bench make a difference?

Well, the Steelers have had their two best rushing performances over the past two weeks. They scored on their first possession of the game in each of those games.

But the truth is, players don’t even think about it – until they do.

“After I scored the touchdown, I got high fives and hugs from everyone,” Harris said. “And I said to myself: ‘I forgot you were here on the sidelines.’” “It’s great to have Matt Canada there. He goes around and asks what we like and what we see, and he runs around. He gives us suggestions and tells us why we ran a certain play.”

If that’s what makes things work better, so be it.

• Beckett’s numbers were not special. He completed 14 of 23 passes for 126 yards and had four carries for 16 yards, including an 11-yard scramble for a first down.

But he did what the Steelers wanted him to do in this game. He ran the game well, caught several first downs running with the ball and never handed it over again.

Pickett now has 147 consecutive passes without an interception.

And while fellow junior Jordan Love made some big throws at times, he also threw two interceptions late in the game.

Winning is more important than putting up fantasy football numbers.

“We had opportunities, but we didn’t capitalize on them,” Pickett said of providing more passing yards. “If the ball was on the left side to (Deontae Johnson). We had a good back shoulder to George, which was a really good play for us. I just wish we had more opportunities to do that, but we got the win, that’s the goal.” The most important thing.”

The Steelers are now 13-5 in their last 18 games. They are 5-1 this season when Pickett starts and finishes games.

Winning is not a coincidence.

• Green Bay’s one-two punch between Aaron Jones and AJ Dillion is good. But it’s recognized around the league as such.

It may be time for people to start recognizing the Steelers’ one-two punch of Harris and Warren as one of the best duos in the league.

“This is a game saver,” Heyward said. “I like being on the sideline more and more. You get excited about the way our offense is progressing. That two-headed monster over there is special.”

• Benton finished this game with six tackles and two quarterback hits. His pressure helped TJ Watt get the Steelers only sack of this game.
