Jaylen Warren’s the highest-graded Steelers offensive player for back-to-back weeks (76.1), according to Pro Football Focus. In the last two weeks, Warren has rushed for 188 yards on 26 carries (7.2 YPC). He has nine rushes of 10+ yards (1st), 14 missed tackles forced (1st), 0.54 per carry (2nd), 11 first downs (1st), 4.6 yards after contact per attempt (5th). 11.5% stuff rate (10th) and 91.5 rushing grade (2nd). Warren is a nominee for FedEx Ground Player of the Week for his Week 10 performance.

🏈 The Steelers have rushed for 371 yards the past two games after a season-high 205 yards against the Green Bay Packers. That’s the most in back-in-back games since they combined for 389 yards against the Buffalo Bills (184) and San Francisco 49ers (205) in Weeks 2-3 in Mike Tomlin’s first season in 2007, according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. With Jaylen Warren’s 101 yards rushing and Najee Harris’ 82 yards on the ground against the Packers it marked the first time since 2014 season that the Steelers had two backs with at least 80 yards rushing in the same game. Previous was Le’Veon Bell (147) and LeGarrette Blount (118) against Carolina in Week 4.

🏈 The Steelers are 15-11 since 2022 despite being out-scored by 64 points. The Steelers point differential through nine games is -26 (156-182). 

🏈 The Steelers have a 70% chance of making the playoffs. If they beat the Browns on Sunday their chances to make the postseason will increase to 81%.
