PITTSBURGH — The Steelers defense is having a game for the ages. While only allowing 14 points to the Cleveland Browns, the pass rush has put up one of their best games ever in franchise history. With nine sacks total on the day, the Steelers have notched one of the best games from a sack production standpoint in franchise history.
Only five other games have matched the total, with the latest having been October 21, 2001, in a Steelers win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when they put up 10 sacks on Brad Johnson. Baker Mayfield was running all day, and was hit a whopping 11 times on top of the sacks.
Still, this puts the Steelers in a special category with the Blitzburgh era Steelers. It is a truly rare feat for them to accomplish as a team, and puts into perspective just how monumental the game was for the Steelers overall.
