Steelers Grades, Snap Counts vs. Bengals: Deployment Problems Hurting Defense (+)



Steelers Bengals Art Maulet Tyler Boyd

The Pittsburgh Steelers got back into the win column with a 20-10 victory over the hapless New Orleans Saints on Sunday. With two trades and significant changes to the makeup of the roster due to injuries and returns, there was significant shakeup to the distribution of reps. Which players graded out highly to help give the team a winning edge? Let’s take a look:


Kenny Pickett continued his yo-yo cycle of up-and-down PFF grades, but is showing some consistency when it comes to passer rating and adjusted net yards per attempt. That’s the impact of two straight games without an interception. The best game of Steelers quarterback play this season still clearly belongs to Mitch Trubisky. Scary thought.

QB Mitch Trubisky 0 0%
