Keith Butler Focused On Stopping The Run Sunday Despite Bengals’ Dynamic Receiving Options

It sounds cliche at this point in Keith Butler’s long career as defensive coordinator for the Pittsburgh Steelers, but on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals, Butler is focused on one thing with the Bengals’ high-flying offense: stopping the run.

Yes, the Bengals are known for having as impressive of a trio at receiver that you’ll find in the NFL with veteran Tyler Boyd, second-year receiver Tee Higgins, and rookie sensation Ja’Marr Chase catching passes from Joe Burrow, but as always, the real key cog in the engine that is the Bengals’ offense is running back Joe Mixon and a strong Bengals’ rushing attack.
