Rashard Mendenhall: Rushes For 81 Yards, TD In 2012 Debut

Update: Mendenhall led the Steelers with 81 yards on 14 carries and one touchdown, and had two receptions for 10 yards in his first game of the season, as Pittsburgh defeated the Eagles 16-14 Sunday.

Recommendation: Pittsburgh used Mendenhall sparingly in the first half (four carries), but he seemed to get stronger as the game went on, gaining 61 of his rushing yards in the second half. His 13 yard touchdown run came on a lateral from Ben Roethlisberger to give the Steelers an early lead. They face the Titans on Thursday, so we'll have to see how Mendenhall's knee responds in the short week.
