I hope some of you noticed they played tight man to man defense a departure from the zone coverage used prevalent in most Steeler games

I think that confused the Patriots and I give credit to LeBeau and the players for executing it well

i knew the pass defense would be great if we could get a #2 corner that was better than burnt toast mcfadden. keenan lewis, william gay, and cortez allen are playing very well. I like the work cortez did against gronkowski, I had a feeling that shadowing him with a 6'1 corner would be less of a mismatch than having gay on him

they've been doing a lot more of that man coverage scheme ever since mcfadden went down. william gay and keenan lewis are more man coverage corners so they changed the coverage scheme to play to their strengths.

I absolutely loved this game plan on both sides of the ball. I was beginning to wonder if Lebeau had it in him to change it up depending on the opponent. They basically kicked the Patriots butt despite the score. Watching Lewis out there is a breath of fresh air. How we keep winning with all of these injuries is beyond me. I hope Woodley is ok for the Raven's game.
