Ground And Pound: Steelers Have No Excuse Not To Run Over The Raiders On Sunday Night

Remember when head coach Mike Tomlin said that the Pittsburgh Steelers weren’t bashful with their intentions to establish a strong running game last season to aid Kenny Pickett in his first NFL season? Tomlin continued to reiterate that statement throughout the offseason and into the preseason, stating that Pittsburgh wants to have a balanced offense with the running game setting up success for Pickett in the passing game.

Well, through the first two regular-season games, the running game has been nowhere to be found. The Steelers are currently second-to-last in the NFL with 96 rushing yards through two game and are also second worst in football in total rushing attempts (31).
