Dominant defensive front gives Steelers D plenty of options

PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping their dominant defensive performance in a Week 1 win over Buffalo carries over to a Week 2 matchup with Las Vegas.

The Steelers kept Buffalo’s high-powered offense in check thanks to outstanding play by the defensive line and edge rusher T.J. Watt. The group was so effective the Steelers rarely blitzed, confusing Allen in the process.

Pittsburgh has its work cut out against the Raiders, who had 491 yards in an overtime victory against Baltimore.
