Loser: Minkah Fitzpatrick

Unfortunately, Edmunds running mate Minkah Fitzpatrick had far less success on the day. For the most part, his play wasn’t horrible, but he continues to struggle to make an impact. Yes, part of this is due to offenses avoiding him, but he has had a few costly penalties and a couple of missed tackles that have aided in frustration with him.

The worst part of his way was the blown angle on the A.J. Brown touchdown. Had he been more aware and taken a better angle on the play, he could have prevented that score. Considering how close this game was, it very much could have made the difference had the Steelers ultimately lost. Beyond just that play, Fitzpatrick failed to make an impact on this defense.

While his interception and score were welcomed last week, he is still struggling to make plays in the opportunities he has had. No, he hasn’t been horrible but considering what he can do, he has certainly disappointed this year. He still has plenty of season left to right this ship, but until then, there will still be a lot of questions surrounding his overall game.
