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. Brown still leads the league in receptions with 67 and remains on pace to break a few franchise single-season receiving records. As I anticipated, both tight end Heath Miller (-5.3) and center Fernando Velasco (-4.4) did not grade out well. In fact, Adams and David DeCastro were the only two Steelers offensive lineman to finish with a positive grade and most of his snaps came as a tight end. Next up for the Steelers will be the Detroit Lions. Mike Adams, Jonathan Dwyer, Ike Taylor, Ryan Clark Earn Top Grades From Pro Football Focus is a post from: Steelers Depot
