5 winners and 4 losers from Steelers 27-24 win vs. Titans
Winner: Terrell Edmunds
One of the Steelers defenders that has seen the most criticism also had one of the strongest games of the year for himself against the Titans. Terrell Edmunds has been the bane of many Steelers fans due to his struggles in coverage, but he looked capable this week. He had a few great coverages, a key breakup in the end zone, and he continued his constant play in the running game.
Was he elite? No, but he provided a steady presence in the secondary. While it would have been nice to see Edmunds come up with a turnover, his baby steps toward improvement have been noticeable in recent weeks. Though he still has some struggles in coverage, he has certainly improved in that area recently. He has all over the field against the Titans, and he looked like a more than competent defensive back for much of the game.
Going forward, it will be interesting to see where he steps up his game next. If he can add a couple of turnovers to his resume, he may start to have a turnaround similar to Bud Dupree had with the defense. While Edmunds isn’t a household name, if he continues his solid play, he should earn more respect from opposing offenses. He has made some improvements recently, and ideally, he will only build off of those.
