Steelers’ Efficient Red Zone Defense Matches Up Perfectly With Inefficient Alex Smith

Once again, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ red zone defense played a heavy hand in yet another victory Sunday. James Harrison’s strip sack of Miami Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore in the red zone was just as important to the Steelers’ victory as the multiple touchdowns scored by Antonio Brown or Le’Veon Bell. The strip sack by Harrison was just the latest chapter in the story of the Steelers’ daunting red zone defense. With the latest chapter set to be written Sunday about the Kansas City Chiefs, the Steelers defense could be licking their chops at the opportunity of facing an inefficient Alex Smith.
