whichever Packers cornerback was unfortunately

jlsalh21
After Pittsburgh shot out of the gate in a pass-happy mood, only to remain locked with the Pack, the Steelers reverted to a tried-and-true strategy: Feed Le'Veon Bell. Behind Bell's best game since the bye, Stefen Wisniewski Youth Jersey Pittsburgh crossed the century mark on the ground for the first time since Week 7, creating the needed balance to maintain long drives. Bell ran for 95 yards on 20 carries and led the team with 12 receptions, en route to tallying 183 total yards. The back played a vital role in the pass game for Roethlisberger, who was missing his second-favorite receiver, JuJu Smith-Schuster. Those worried about Bell's durability will shiver at the back's 32 touches, Tommy McDonald Youth Jersey but riding Bell is a poison pill the Steelers are ready and willing to swallow.

3. This game wouldn't have even been a contest without Brett Hundley, who authored his best half of the season in the first two frames in the Steel City. The Packers' backup followed up a career-worst showing with a near-perfect passer rating in the first half, throwing two touchdowns and completing seven of nine attempts -- one of those scores came on a long Jamaal Williams screen, but the point remains. Vinny Curry Youth Jersey With a clean pocket, Hundley showed great touch and Rodgersian confidence on deep throws to Randall Cobb and Davante Adams. The house of cards collapsed in the second half as Pittsburgh broke through Green Bay's front line and the pressure increased -- his management of Green Bay's last drive, which included a clock-killing dump-off was amateur -- but Packers fans should be encouraged with their young QB's bounce-back performance.

4. Hundley's breakout Wendell Smallwood Youth Jersey evening was due in part to multiple breakdowns in Pittsburgh's secondary throughout the night, one severely missing All-Pro corner Joe Haden. The Steelers defensive backs, namely Artie Burns and Coty Sensabaugh, were burned for three touchdown passes -- two bombs of 39 and 55 yards and one screen pass. In the three games since Haden broke his fibula, the Steelers have allowed five pass TDs of 50-plus yards.
