Cam Sutton Reflects on Steelers Thrilling 13-10 Win Over Raiders
PITTSBURGH — Cam Sutton and Arthur Maulet were critical to allowing the Steelers to overcome the Las Vegas Raiders on Saturday as they pulled out a gritty 13-10 win near the end of the game. With both getting turnovers in the frigid temperatures, Derek Carr was held at bay during his three-interception performance.
For a player like Maulet, he embraced both the fans showing support and cold of the game to help power his energy. Referred to by Mike Tomlin as one of the ‘little angry men’ in the NFL playing at slot cornerback, his contributions helped spring the Steelers to a win.
“We live in Pittsburgh, baby. We love it here. This is December football,” Maulet said.
Meanwhile, Cam Sutton reflected on what was an emotional game for him. Sutton allowed the first touchdown of the game to Hunter Renfrow but ended up making the game-clinching interception. The game ended up being ‘surreal’ for Sutton by the end of it as the Steelers paid tribute to the late Franco Harris. Without the contributions of these two defensive backs and Minkah Fitzpatrick, the Raiders very likely would have pulled out the win and eliminated Pittsburgh from the playoffs altogether for the season.
