Steelers running game is firing on all cylinders
The Steelers are finally executing the exact game plan that Mike Tomlin has set out to achieve. The motto of this team is to run the football well and play great defense to win football games. They did the former perfectly in Week 10 against the Packers.
The combination of running backs Jaylen Warren and Najee Harris proved to be lethal to the Packers' defensive front on Sunday. Warren carried the ball 15 times for 101 yards and a touchdown, while Harris chipped in 16 carries for 82 yards and a score, via ESPN stats.
While Warren was the more impressive runner in this contest, both backs tag teamed to carve up Green Bay's defense in Week 10. On the afternoon, the Steelers rushed for 205 yards and a pair of touchdowns on an impressive 5.7 yards per attempt.
Rookie offensive tackle Broderick Jones deserves credit for opening some massive running lanes (as does the rest of the offensive line). The running game is finally becoming what fans had hoped it would be, and it was a big reason they were able to fend off the Packers in Week 10 for the win.
