Don't look now, but the Steelers have the 4th ranked pass defense in the NFL
Ok yeah, I know it's only heading into week 3 but atleast we have something to smile about with the much maligned Steelers pass defense.
Week 1 - Joe Flacco - 17/29 224 yds. 3 TD's
Week 2 - Tavarius Jackson - 20-29 159 yds. 0 TD's
Interestingly enough for those that don't remember, the Steelers pass defense finished:
12th overall in 2010 for Pass Defense.
5th overall in 2010 for interceptions (21)
1st in Points allowed in 2010, average of 14.5 ppg
Just something to chew on as we often discuss the secondary when it comes to defense. Yes we know that pass defense includes more than just the 4 guys in the back, but normally when you think about stopping the pass you automatically focus on the DB's.
