Keith Butler: ‘When We Turn The Ball Over, We Have To Make Them Go Up By 3s’

While the Pittsburgh Steelers defense has, by and large, been a bright spot for the team this year, one area in which they have somewhat consistently failed in 2019 has been with their quick-turnaround performance, when the offense has turned the ball over.

By my count, the offense has turned the ball over 11 times this year, and of those 11 giveaways, nine have come in meaningful scenarios for the opposing team in which they would be looking to score a touchdown. They were successful in doing so seven times. The opposing team scored field goals on the other two.
