The Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football. Here are five things we learned from the game.
The Steelers got off to a sluggish start against the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night football. Pittsburgh managed to surrender 14 first-quarter points, and they struggled to move the ball on offense.
However, things eventually turned around, and we got a good look at some of the young talent on their team. Pittsburgh has now won 3 of their last 4 matchups and look to even their record against the Indianapolis Colts this week.
The Steelers certainly impressed in some areas but still have things they need to improve on. Here are five things we learned from their performance against the Miami Dolphins on Monday night:
Mason Rudolph has impressive confidence
After such a poor start to the game, it was nice to see Mason Rudolph bounce back the way he did. Many quarterbacks would have been hanging their heads after failing to score against Dolphins in the first quarter, and nearly turning the ball over three times.
However, Rudolph showed a veteran level of composure. His mistakes did not make him afraid to keep slinging the ball. Though his accuracy was sporadic at times, he eventually started making plays down the field. Rudolph might always have general accuracy, but he possesses terrific poise and confidence under pressure. I would almost go as far as to say he has an ‘it’ factor about him.
