Steelers Defense Draws Tough Week 10 Matchup

Steelers Defense Draws Tough Week 10 Matchup

The Pittsburgh Steelers routed the Carolina Panthers 52-21 and were on cruise control for most of the second half.

"Sometimes you see things for the first time, things that they do a little differently, with a little twist to them, it makes things hard", Rivera said. His last did the same. Additionally, Panthers-Steelers averaged an 8.9 HH rating - up +12% versus last year's Seahawks-Cardinals matchup (7.9 HH rating) and +6% versus the 2017 10-game Thursday Night Football average (8.4 HH rating).

Ten different Steelers touched the ball on offense.

But he'd probably like to have that one back.

Through 8 games, Cam has passed for 1,893 yards and 15 TD's, throwing just four interceptions.

"This is what we expected", Roethlisberger said. "We'll cross those bridges when we get to them at the end of the season". "The scoreboard was (indicative) of how we played".

After 10 weeks of uncertainty from Le'Veon Bell amid a holdout for a long term contract, the Steelers expect their star running back to report next week. His teammates have long since exhausted of talking about Bell's status and at this point. That did not happen and things went from bad to worse later on when Eric Reid got ejected from the game for a flagrant foul on Roethlisberger.

Some teams had imposed "two-drink limits", he said, while others had introduced a ticketing system to stop alcohol flowing freely. Reacting to the announcements, the organisers of last week's Google Walkout said the pledges proved "collective action works".

And why bother? For three hours on Thursday night Pittsburgh looked every bit as potent without Bell as it did with him. If he returns, they insist they'll welcome him with open arms.

The Panthers saw a three-game winning streak halted as they fell to 6-3 for the season. The officiating crew made the right decision to eject the safety for intentionally leading with his helmet ultimately injuring Panthers' quarterback, Cam Newton. The Steelers sacked Newton five times and rarely let him get comfortable.

"You are going to have these types of games in the league", said Newton, "but it's going to be about how we rebound". Get your 100% signup bonus today.

"He's like these new-age backs where they are good, obviously, running the ball, but he can catch the ball and cause some mismatches as well". Vince Williams picked it off and returned it 17 yards for a touchdown and a 14-7 Steelers lead.

NOTABLE: This marks the first regular season meeting between the Steelers and Panthers since former Steelers minority owner David Tepper bought controlling interest in the Panthers; Tepper was a minority owner for Pittsburgh from 2009 to 2018. Carolina allowed the same total in a 52-9 loss to Oakland on December 24, 2000. But the National Football League says that's the key distinction to make when determining whether or not a hit on a sliding quarterback is a penalty.

The Rams believe no one connected to their organization was at the bar, but coach Sean McVay and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips both described a somber mood in the Rams' locker room before practice.

PASSING-Carolina, Newton 23-29-1-193. Pittsburgh, Roethlisberger 22-25-0-328, Dobbs 1-2-0-(minus 3). Roethlisberger's cleats featured the names of all 11 victims while Newton's cleats read "Hatred Can't Weaken a City of Steel". They'll return to practice Tuesday to begin preparations for the November 18 game at Detroit.
