Pittsburgh Steelers' dominant defensive line makes them the Favorites in the AFC

The pass rush vs. coverage debate is one PFF has harped on about regularly over the past few years. While we believe coverage to be more valuable, we also believe that being dominant in one aspect goes a long way to building a playoff-caliber roster, and there’s no debating the fact that being utterly dominant is the goal.

Simply being “good” across the board isn’t enough in today’s NFL, with modern offenses dictating how defenses have to react. No, defenses have to have a unit dominant enough to make offenses adjust in order to take back the balance of power.
