Cam Heyward, Steelers Led the NFL in QB Pressures Week 1

Published

on

The Pittsburgh Steelers leaned on their potent pass rush in their upset win over the Buffalo Bills.

The primary culprit was defensive lineman Cam Heyward, who led the NFL in pressures Week 1 with 12, according to CBS. He also tallied four total tackles, a sack, a tackle-for-loss and a pass defended.

Heyward was not the only Steelers pass rusher to terrorize Josh Allen on Sunday, as T.J. Watt and Melvin Ingram each had eight pressures of their own, which tied them for the third-most in the league with Cleveland’s Myles Garrett.

Watt added two sacks of his own, a forced fumble and five quarterback hits. Ingram had a tackle-for-loss and a pass breakup.
