On Sunday night, the Pittsburgh Steelers took on the Las Vegas Raiders on the road and came away with a thrilling 23-18 win. Overall the effort by the Steelers was inconsistent but thankfully, several huge plays helped carry the Steelers past the Raiders.
This got us thinking about our player of the game and immediately four names came to mind.
EDGE T.J. Watt was masterful once again. He constantly harassed Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and his two sacks gave him six on the season. Staying on defense, cornerback Levi Wallace overcame a rough start to finish with two interceptions including the game-ender on the Raiders final drive.
Moving to offense, we have quarterback Kenny Pickett who had his best game of the season. Pickett threw for 235 yards and two touchdowns without throwing an interception. Finally, on special teams, we have punter Pressley Harvin III. Harvin had six punts and averaged 53.8 yards per punt. He launched a 63-yard punt and pinned Las Vegas inside the 20 three times.
