NFL Power Rankings Week 7: Titans collapse and bench Marcus Mariota
By Will Lomas
Pros: I have done a complete 180 on this team over the last few weeks. The defensive side of the ball for them is just so impressive and Cameron Sutton is a player that doesn’t get a lot of attention, but when you see guys like Sutton mixed in with high pedigree guys like Minkah Fitzpatrick, Devin Bush, T.J. Watt, Cameron Heward, etc. you get the feeling that the Steelers can make anyone look great as long as they have that core group of defenders.
Offensively, the line looked outstanding and the running backs had gaping holes to run through all night long. The Chargers front isn’t special, but they certainly looked Chiefs levels of bad tonight.
Cons: Who are the real Steelers. I want to believe that we are going to get the old school Steelers who win gritty games with the run game and aggressive defense. However, in the past they have gone to pass heavy scripts that lead to more variance.
I think their best game of the season was tonight on the road against the L.A. Chargers. Will they regress to more passes when Mason Rudolph is back?
