2. Quite the Debut
James Conner, playing in the place of unhappy running back Le’Veon Bell who remains a holdout, looked outstanding minus a fumble that turned the game around in the fourth quarter with the Steelers up 21-7.
Conner ran for 135 yards with a pair of touchdowns, and he also had five grabs for 57 yards. He ran in for two scores, and actually played better in this opener than Bell did a year ago.
It was a week of turmoil with Bell not reporting, but Conner did his best impression, and it will be interesting with Conner looking as good as he did if Bell suddenly gets into camp.
