Steelers running attack balances out offense in big win
Rashard Mendenhall- 16 rushes, 60 yds.
Isaac Redman - 8 rushes, 51 yds.
Mewelde Moore: 1 rush, 13 yds.
Jonathan Dwyer: 3 rushes, 8 yds.
Antonio Brown: 1 rush, 9 yds.
The Steelers put up the 2nd most rushing yards against the Bengals in 2011, with their win today. The running back by committee posted up 136 yds today, second only to the Browns ealier this season.
The offensive line played superb today opening up lanes and securing the edge when needed. Both Mendenhall and Redman ran hard and tough today. You could regularly see them breaking tackles and keeping their legs churning to get those extra yards. Considering how well the Bengals defense was ranked, #5 in the NFL going into this weekend's games, the Steelers success is pretty impressive and obviously important.
