It was clear going in, tight end Pat Freiermuth wasn’t going to get a full load on Sunday. Freiermuth was limited due to a foot injury. But Freiermuth did play 36 offensive snaps but didn’t get a single target in the game. It’s the first time in Freiermuth’s career he has played a game and not had a catch.

The Panthers had been running the football on a high note. Carolina ran 46 times for 223 yards the previous week against the Seattle Seahawks. The Steelers arrived prepared and completely stopped the run game.

An efficient and effective running game is different than one that isn’t. The Steelers weren’t terribly efficient running the ball at only 3.5 yards per carry as a team. They were efficient, however. They were effective because they allowed the offense to control the crucial possession downs.

Going into Sunday’s game, the Steelers only had 31 sacks through 13 games. This is the fifth consecutive season that this team has received 50+ sacks. With four sacks by Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold, Pittsburgh got things back on track. Steelers must continue to maintain their streak of five sacks per week if they want to extend it.
