Le’Veon Makes the Steelers Offense Unstoppable
- Updated: October 3, 2016
The Steelers have been in the conversation as one of the teams that merit consideration for a Super Bowl run this year. They looked dynamic in their first two games, to follow these predictions and then got walloped by the Eagles in their third game. In what was called a redemption game by the coaching staff, the Steelers followed up that loss with an absolute rout of the Chiefs in Le’Veon Bell’s first game back from suspension.
The Steelers offense was on display for the world to see last night on Sunday Night football. Ben Roethlisberger was poised and willing to deliver stripes to any and every receiver, as he spread the ball around quite nicely. The Chiefs talented defense came out a bit flat and Ben and the offense capitalized.
The offense finally has all almost all of the pieces together and now, maintenance of health should be their focus. In previous years, the Steelers lost Le’Veon Bell, Maurkice Pouncey, and Ryan Shazier to injury when health was vital (playoff time).
Now, the Steelers have a phenomenal offense line, which they lacked during a long period of Ben Roethlisberger’s tenure as starting quarterback. They have quite possibly the two best skill position players in the league in Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown. They’re using a rotation at tight end and wide receiver to compensate the fresh absences of Heath Miller (retired) and Martavis Bryant (suspended) and they’re working quite nicely.
The front seven is winning with speed and now looks good with full health, even without a ferocious pass rush, and the secondary is coming into their own around first round draft choice Artie Burns.
This team is the team to beat in the AFC and Le’Veon returning to a huge game only cemented that last night.
