Steelers Week 9 Player of the Game

Thursday night was full of surprises. The Pittsburgh Steelers found a way to squeak by the Tennessee Titans thanks to a stout defense and power run game. Lots of players stepped up and made plays when the team needed them so it’s been a little extra challenging this week to select our player of the game.

Here is our rundown of candidates:

WR Diontae Johnson

RB Najee Harris

RB Jaylen Warren

OT Broderick Jones

LB Kwon Alexander

EDGE T.J. Watt

EDGE Alex Highsmith

Not so fast!

You can't place a vote until you make a selection first.

Cast your vote and tell us who your player of the game is. For us, it’s got to be Diontae Johnson. We love what Harris and Warren did but you can’t pick one over the other this week. But on a week when Kenny Pickett was off, Johnson stepped up and reassured everyone he is still a No. 1 receiver in the NFL. He led the team in receptions and receiving yards and finally got in the end zone.
