The Steelers are 2-0 and fresh off of a solid win against the Bengals to kick off their home schedule.
While the focus turns from the Bengals to the Eagles we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Monday, Sept. 19th.
The ageless wonder
Age is nothing but a number for running back DeAngelo Williams as he keeps on providing play after play for Pittsburgh’s offense. Bob Labriola declares Williams as the Digest Player of the Week for the second week in a row as he was the steadiest player on offense Sunday afternoon.
Williams accumulated 94 rushing yards on 32 carries and also caught four passes for 38 yards including the fourth-quarter touchdown that sealed the victory. The win wasn’t pretty for the offense but it was beautiful watching Williams’ performance.
Not too shabby
If this is what the new and improved Steelers defense is supposed to look like I think I’m going to like it. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler illustrates how the defense has only allowed two touchdowns so far this season. They might not be the 2008 defense but this is certainly going in the right direction.
Without getting a lot of turnovers or getting after Andy Dalton the defense was able to hold firm in the red zone and held the Bengals to field goals on two of their drives that went the length of the field. They held Andy Dalton to less than a 50 percent completion rate after last week when he was well over 70 percent.
I’ll take it.
The Bengals fans will be crying about this one for a while but the late Tyler Boyd fumble. Everyone thought was going to be overturned when it appeared that Boyd was down was upheld instead.
I don’t know if Steelers fans would be understanding if the shoe was on the other foot but we don’t have to worry about that. Suck it Cincy. See you in Week 15.
