3 performances that stuck out from a relieving Steelers win against Denver
The Steelers snap their three-game losing streak with a 27-19 win over the Denver Broncos and proved some doubters wrong.
The Steelers wouldn’t be the Steelers if they weren’t in control of a game and let the opponent come back and have a chance to tie or beat them. Regardless of that, I am thrilled the Steelers won and now I can enjoy my Sunday and the rest of my week.
Here are three impressive performances from Sunday’s victory over the Denver Broncos.
Steelers offensive line
The offensive line performed very well against a heavy Denver pass rush by giving up just one sack. The line kept the pocket clean enough to let Ben deliver passes and Kendrick Green and Kevin Dotson performed much better than they have been in the recent games.
Najee Harris to record his first 100-yard rushing performance in the NFL. Harris ended up with 122 yards and a score on 23 rushing attempts. He also averaged 5.3 yards per carry and was the first 100-yard rusher for the Steelers since early in the 2020 season.
The offensive line has struggled immensely for the last month and it seemed like there was no hope for them. Ben did take some hits but looked comfortable and was able to extend some plays as well as bring out the ol’ pump fake. Aside from a couple of penalties and Chuks not playing well, the line did its job and played a big role in the offensive success.
