Last week: 14 (+7) Record: 7-2 This team really lucked out. They were looking shaky (even off a 35 point home win) and had 2 games against the Steelers in their next 3 weeks and looked poised to cede their division lead, but Ben Roethlisberger’s injury changes that. They’re still allowing 40 more yards per game than they gain and have only won 2 games by more than 10 points despite an easy schedule. Even in their huge win last week, they still got outgained, just the 4th time since 1989 a team has been outgained and still won by 35 or more. They’ll be a good team to fade in the first round of the playoffs, especially if a healthy Steelers team comes to town. Studs LT Michael Oher: Allowed 1 quarterback hurry on 35 pass block snaps, run blocked for 4 yards on 2 attempts TE Dennis Pitta: Caught 5 passes for 67 yards and a touchdown on 5 attempts on 23 pass snaps, 7.2 YAC per catch CB Cary Williams: Allowed 3 catches for 27 yards on 7 attempts, 1 pass deflection, 3 solo tackles, 1 stop...
