The Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Washington Redskins 38-16 in Week 1. Even without running back Le’Veon Bell and wide receiver Markus Wheaton, the Steelers offense dominated off the sure hands of Antonio Brown and quick feet of DeAngelo Williams.
The Pittsburgh Steelers started off their Monday night showdown quite slow being held scoreless through the first quarter. Luckily for the Steelers, Ben Roethlisberger and the offense got in a groove, and just never took their foot off the gas, scoring double digit points in every quarter for the rest of the game.
The Steelers offense proved that even without Bell, Bryant, and Markus Wheaton, they still boast one of the best units in football, and running back DeAngelo Williams made sure to let everyone know that age won’t slow him down.
Might I also add, the defense looked a lot better heading into year two under Keith Butler.
Will the Steelers domination of a 2015 playoff team while dealing with injuries/suspensions boost them up the rankings? Let’s see.
