Week Six Steelers’ Defensive Charting Notes

Steelers versus Dolphins

Our weekly charting on the defensive side of the ball.

– The Miami Dolphins ran 37 of 70 plays inside Pittsburgh Steelers’ territory. That’s over half the time.

– Despite the Steelers often playing from behind, they were in their base defense just 27.1% of the time. Nickel was still over 71%.

Ross Cockrell continues his strong season. Targeted twice and didn’t allow a completion on either.

Keith Butler rushed five – what he would consider a blitz – just 5 times on 33 opportunities. That’s 15.2% of the time. He did blitz – what we consider one anyway – seven times, or 21.2%. A defensive back was brought three times.

– As we mentioned earlier this week, the Steelers recorded just two pressures in this game. One from Daniel McCullers, one from Stephon Tuitt.

– Pittsburgh gave up 112 yards of YAC Sunday, an average of 4.5 yards per completion.

Javon Hargrave took 16 snaps as the base nose tackle. McCullers had three.

Tyler Matakevich averaged a tackle every other defensive snap. 18 snaps, nine tackles.

James Harrison outsnapped Jarvis Jones 39-31.

Robert Golden played in the box 33 times.

– The Steelers goal line personnel: 4 DL-5 linebackers (two with their hand down)-2 safeties.

Mike Mitchell was not on the field for goal line. He was replaced by Jordan Dangerfield.
