The Pittsburgh Steelers hold on for a big win over the Green Bay Packers to move to 6-3 on the year and keep them in contention for a tight race in the AFC North.

Offensive spotlight: The Steelers did most of their offensive damage on the ground and with Chris Boswell field goals. Both Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren found the endzone in this game with each back handling double-digit carries. Harris carried the ball 16 times for 82 yards while Warren took 15 carries for 101 rushing yards as they both had efficient days on the ground. Kenny Pickett completed just 14 of 23 pass attempts for 126 yards through the air as the Steelers' running backs were the stars of this one to lead their offense to victory.

Jordan Love had a decent day passing the ball with two touchdowns and 289 yards through the air, but an interception in the endzone with under four minutes to go and another interception on the game’s final play would prove costly as the Packers come up short. A.J. Dillon led the team on the ground with 70 rushing yards on nine carries, including a big 40-yard run. Aaron Jones handled 13 carries for just 35 yards on the ground while adding three receptions for 19 yards.

Defensive spotlight: T.J. Watt landed his 88th career sack in this game, passing his brother J.J. Watt for the second-most sacks in a player’s first 100 games. Watt now has 10.5 sacks on the season. Watt also led the Steelers defense with eight total tackles on the day. An interception by Keanu Neal in the endzone with under four minutes to go while on the final play of the game, it was Damontae Kazee who came up with an interception to seal the win. Both Kazee and Neal saw an increase in playing time with Minkah Fitzpatrick missing his second-straight game.

Rookie spotlight: Jayden Reed led the Packers in receiving today with five targets for five catches, 84 yards, and a touchdown. Reed now has four touchdown catches on the season to go along with 417 receiving yards. Luke Musgrave was second the team in receiving yards as he came up with a couple big catches for a total of 64 yards as he now crossed 300 receiving yards for the season.
