Grades: Three Steelers who destroyed the Colts
By Tim Weaver
James Harrison: A
Most of the attention went to the Steelers’ offense for their ridiculous numbers, but several Steelers defenders also came through with solid games. Keith Butler finally put Brandon Boykin on the field and he came through by securing an interception on a deflected pass. Ross Cockrell also did a solid job in coverage.
The real standout for Pittsburgh’s defense though was old man James Harrison, who continues to be the team’s most productive pass rusher even coming off the bench.

Harrison finished the game with three sacks and totally dominated Indy’s right tackle all night. In the process, he became the all-time franchise leader in multi-sack games with 18.
Pittsburgh is starting to look like the team that nobody wants to face in an AFC wild card game.
