Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick's interception late in the fourth quarter helped the Pittsburgh Steelers escape with a 19-16 win over the Atlanta Falcons. With this win, the team improves their record to 5-7 while posting their second straight win in the process.
What was notable in this game was the Steelers' ground offense, which has been trending upward since their Week 10 win over the New Orleans Saints. In total, the Steelers offense accumulated 154 rushing yards, with Najee Harris leading the way with 86 of them.
The other theme of the game was ball security. In the third quarter, receiver Diontae Johnson had what seemed like a fumble for the Falcons, only to have it overturned as an incomplete pass. Dropped passes and ball security have been issues for Johnson this season, which has been a source of frustration for Steelers fans.
