The Pittsburgh Steelers defense played a heck of game Sunday against the Buffalo Bills so it should be no surprise that several players graded out well on Pro Football Focus.
Safety Ryan Clark (2.3), cornerback Ike Taylor (2.3), cornerback William Gay (1.7) and linebacker Lawrence Timmons (1.6) received the top grades on the defensive side of the football for their play Sunday.
After giving up 610 net yards of offense and 55 points to the New England Patriots, the defense allowed just 227 yards of offense against the Bills and just 10 points. The Bills final drive of the game saw them go 80 yards, so you can see just how much the Steelers defense dominated them. The defense also allowed just two plays of 20 yards or more and a long run of 11 yards.
As far as the Steelers offense goes, tackle Mike Adams (1.7), running back Jonathan Dwyer (1.3) and wide receiver Antonio Brown (1.1) graded out the best, according to PFF, and all three were on my weekly winners list as well. Ahem.

Steelers Bills Week 10 Inactives is a post from: Steelers Depot
Pittsburgh, PA— When Ben Roethlisberger orchestrated a game-winning drive, capped off with a touchdown strike in the back of the end zone to Santonio Holmes, winning his 2nd super bowl in 4 years, it was hard to imagine any one else taking snaps for the Steelers. But next year, Steelers fans may have to see the unimaginable, […]

Following last week’s 24-point trouncing by the New England Patriots, a lot of reporters covering the Pittsburgh Steelers suddenly hit the contemplative switch and brainstormed to come up with this most amazing of questions: why hasn’t Mike Tomlin made any changes to make the team better?

Ben once again took to the media to shoot down any and all trade rumors. Per CBSSports: “I’d retire before I’d accept a trade. […]
In all three wins this season, the Steelers defense stepped up and delivered with crushing physical play. One hit in particular was one of the best of the season in any game, and it was (no surprise) by our favorite Steeler right now, Lawrence Timmons. This is textbook quarterback sacking right here, and a crushing blow to rookie E.J. Manuel (thanks to Steelers Depot):
Here is today's Inactive list vs. the Bills per NFL.com
Offensively, we are almost all healthy and accounted for. I am hoping to see some explosive plays from Markus Wheaton... maybe because I took a chance on him for my Pick 6.
I am big Pac 12 guy and I have seen Markus light up stadiums. We need a fresh, young face to make some big plays.
