Broncos vs. Steelers: Behind Enemy Lines with Still Curtian
Thoughts on win over Jaguars
The Pittsburgh Steelers secured a huge comeback win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. What impressed you the most from the victory?
NS: Two things stood out more than anything – Ben Roethlisberger and the defense. Of course, everyone saw the drastic change from first half Ben to second half Ben. He proved this team will go as far as he’ll take them, and with the confidence he has right now, the possibilities are endless. Second is the defense.
Allowing 16 points was the biggest reason the Steelers pulled off the win. They’ve been the backbone of this team during their six-game winning streak. It’s been awhile since Pittsburgh has leaned on their defense to carry them.
DD: What impressed me the most about last Sunday’s victory was the team’s resiliency. This Steelers team in 2017 pulled out a lot of close games, and through eleven weeks of the year in 2018, it appeared Pittsburgh just didn’t have the same fourth quarter mentality about them.
Going into Jacksonville, a team the Steelers just haven’t been able to beat in recent memory, there were a lot of working factors going against them. Despite turning the ball over and not being able to stop the run for majority of the game, Pittsburgh stepped up when they needed to most.
There were a lot of questions surrounding this team, but Sunday’s win in Jacksonville proved they’re still the team to beat in the AFC North.
