Steelers On Pace To Record Lowest Sack Total Since 1988

The Pittsburgh Steelers have several problems on defense this season and one of those includes them failing to sack opposing quarterbacks enough.

After sacking New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees just once Sunday in their 35-32 loss at Heinz Field, the Steelers defense has now registered 21 quarterback take-downs through 12 games.

At their current pace, the Steelers will finish the 2014 season with 28 sacks and that will be the lowest amount registered in Pittsburgh dating back to 1988 when they recorded 19. The team low for a 16-game season is 18 in 1980.

Heading into Week 14, linebacker Jason Worilds leads the team in sacks with 4.5. Worilds, who signed a one-year, $9.754 million tender in March, took over the team lead Sunday as he was credited with the Brees sack.
