Terrible Turnovers Lead to Mile High Letdown as Steelers Lose 24-17 to Denver; Three Takeaways

2. Defensive Failures

The Steelers defense, which had been playing well minus a half of run defense in Jacksonville, allowed way too many yards to a rookie running back (Philip Lindsay) and made Case Keenum look a lot better than he was.

The pass rush that was getting to QB’s weekly just wasn’t there Sunday, and Lindsay was able to get into the secondary just way too many times, amassing 110 yards on just 14 carries with a score that was the game-winner.

On a day when the offense had the ball a lot, it would have been nice to have a couple extra stops, and how about a turnover now and then?

Heck knows that they watched the offense give the ball up enough, they should just try to imitate their offense and find a way to recover some fumbles and get some picks – that would help an awful lot.
