Steelers Grades vs. Raiders: Cam Heyward Heating Up; Kazee, Spillane Get Bigger Roles (+)



Steelers Raiders Cam Heyward Grades

The Pittsburgh Steelers got big performances across the board to beat the Las Vegas Raiders on Saturday, with three interceptions from the secondary and a Herculean performance by star defensive tackle Cam Heyward leading the defense and Kenny Pickett, Najee Harris, Pat Freiermuth and George Pickens coming through in the clutch to rescue a bland offensive performance.¬†Here’s the Steelers Week 15 snap counts and grades:


Kenny Pickett’s game took a huge turn on the final drive, when he went 7 for 9 for 76 yards and a touchdown. What could have ended up as one of his worst performances ended up more in the middle of the pack statistically.

His PFF grade, though, likely gave a curve to the weather conditions he was playing in and the weight of the situation when he had his final drive. The 80.4 score was the second-best for a Steelers quarterback this season, behind only Pickett’s other fourth-quarter comeback win at Indianapolis.
