Run the ball and stop the run. The Steelers racked up 264 yards on the ground and begrudged just 42 yards rushing against them in Sunday night's 37-19 win over the Carolina Panthers before thousands of Steelers' fans clad in Black 'n Gold in Charlotte, N.C.
This was a major win for the Steelers, and one they needed. A road win vs. a solid opponent early in the season.
It was only the third game of the year, but for the Steelers to even be considered to be contenders, this was a game they had to win. We thought they would win, and naturally we're glad they did.
Next up: Tampa Bay. Time to get on a roll.
