    Defense Saves The Day; finally gets some turnovers

    Without question if the Steelers don't get those 3 INT's and fumble recovery we don't win this game. Finally, after being in the bottom of the league in takeaways, the defense makes big splash plays on a night when the offense couldn't get out of it's own way. The pass rush didn't get there much this evening but thankfully other members were able to come up with big plays.

    Ryan Mundy gets one, Keenan Lewis gets his first career INT, and Ike gets his first of the year. Not a bad nights work for the guys in the secondary, especially with Troy out tonight.

    The play of the night, no question about it was Lewis' game saving INT. He read Palko's eye's and knew he was going to try and go to go Bowe, his favorite target. The way KC was able to move the ball was giving me flashbacks of the Colts game and the Torrey Smith TD catch. Thankfully the Chiefs used timeouts on that drive which gave the defense time to rest, which they definitely needed being on the field so much.

    Steelers secondary stats:

    Troy: 2 Tackles; left with what was is believed to be a concussion but not confirmed by team.
    Lewis: 1 Tackle, 1 INT
    Mundy: 10 Tackles, 1 INT
    Taylor: 4 Tackles, 1 INT
    Clark: 3 Tackles
    Gay: 2 Tackles

    Defense Saves The Day

    Great overall performance by the D tonight. Once again saving our bacon while the offense cant get out of its own way.

    You'd like to think the Steelers defense would come up with a performance like that all the time, but as we've seen this year they just haven't been able too. A fumble recovery here or a rare INT there but that's about it for turnovers. This definitely helps the stats but the offense also gave it away twice too.

    Unfortunately, it took having such a bad opposing QB but I will definitely take all turnovers no matter what.

    I agree, if the Steelers had been facing anyone other than Palko I have no room to say they would have won this game. All 3 of the passes that were picked off were bad throws and decisions by Tyler. Fortunately the Steelers secondary was there to oblige and take the gifts.
