The Pittsburgh Steelers are 0-2 on the season and have struggled offensively. Still, Matt LaFleur, the head coach of the Green Bay Packers, is concerned about this week’s matchup.
Unsurprisingly, LaFleur is most concerned about Pittsburgh’s defense, especially the pass rush. The Steelers have led the NFL in sacks the last two seasons, with a total of 110.
LaFleur claimed that watching footage of all of those sacks “gave him nightmares.” wpcc-script async src=” https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js ” charset=”utf-8″]
$00 This year, however, Pittsburgh’s stop unit has taken on a new look.The Steelers have only five sacks through three weeks of the season, putting them near the bottom of the league. T.J. Watt, the star pass rusher, and fellow outside linebacker Alex Highsmith are both injured and may not play much, if at all, on Sunday.
That’s not to say LaFleur shouldn’t be concerned. Through three games, the Steelers have only surrendered 66 total points, including a shutout of Bills quarterback Josh Allen in Week 1.
However, with a 2-1 record and a big road win over San Francisco last week, the Packers are in good shape heading into Sunday. Nokia News
