Pittsburgh Steelers vs Arizona Cardinals 12/08/2019
The Pittsburgh Steelers surpassed the Cleveland Browns during their previous matchup. The Steelers ended with a triumphant 20-13 scoreboard. QB Devlin Hodges performed well, going for 14/21 with 212 air yards. He chucked in a thrown TD and a pick. Benny Snell Jr. rushed with the ball for 16 times. He extended the Steelers’ territory by 63 yards, and ultimately scored a rushing TD. James Washington topped the receivers’ record with 4 catches pegged at 111 yards.
The Steelers did well in their stats. They rushed for 32 out of 54 plays. Their reliance on the rush tactic was well-placed and reaped them critical points. The Steelers accumulated a total of 322 yards as compared to their opponent’s 279. They clamped down on throws, reducing the opponent’s throw completion rate to 53%. However, they were unable to hinder the opponent’s 24 rush attempts.
The Steelers had several things going for them in their last matchup. The players were motivated, for one thing. The opponent was also clueless on how to defend against a barrage of rush attempts. These factors effectively sealed the Steelers’ victory.

The Cardinals mustered their best against the Los Angeles Rams but were unable to push through. The Rams took the game with an overwhelming 34-7 scoreboard. QB Kyler Murray played a downcast game, going for 19/34 with 163 air yards. He didn’t score any thrown TD and earned 1 pick. Kenyan Drake took care of ground attacks. His 13 carries earned the team 31 yards. Meanwhile, Larry Fitzgerald received the ball 6 times for 56 yards.
The Cardinals didn’t know what hit them. Several factors were against them, in retrospect. First off, the tale of the yards was already skewed in the opponents’ favor. The Cardinals only posted 198 yards as compared to the opponent’s 549 yards. This was a huge gap and clearly meant that the Cardinals didn’t have control of the field.
Another factor that led the Cardinals’ ruin was their almost-nonexistent defense. The Cardinals allowed a 73% completion rate on opponent throws. They also shrugged off 30 rush attempts. In the end, their lax defense was peppered with scoring attempts that eventually connected.
