This time, it was the offense who couldn’t remain on the field long enough to assist the protection

The Pittsburgh Steelers fell tragically for the third straight time as they are presently 0-3 to begin the 2019 season. Despite the fact that they had the ball with under five minutes staying in the game with a noteworthy lead, a late turnover gave the ball back to the 49ers in field-objective range who punched it into the end zone to take an important lead. Incapable to move the sticks on their last position, the Steelers offense wrapped up in a similar way they did the vast majority of the day – without a first down.

Since the Steelers have delved them selves into the most noticeably awful opening conceivable after Week 3, maybe they can jump profound into self-assessment when survey the tape from Sunday. While the Steelers have kept up a nearby game the most recent two weeks, regardless they have missed the mark concerning triumph and have numerous things they can hope to fix in the forthcoming weeks.

There were numerous things that added to the Steelers misfortune, and the numbers delineated here most likely just start to expose what’s underneath. In contrast to a week ago, the most glaring numbers were back to being with the offense as I would like to think despite the fact that there was a lot of fault to go around. So here are a portion of the numbers which added to the Steelers misfortune in Week 3.


The hour of ownership was exceptionally slanted for the 49ers on Sunday. Actually, they had the football 12:34 longer than the Steelers which is what might be compared to very nearly a whole quarter contrast. It likewise denoted the second in a row week where the Steelers adversary ran in excess of 70 plays.


The Steelers last drive of the principal half kept going 5:55 on 11 plays for just 34 yards. It brought about a punt from 49ers 41-yard line. Amazingly, it was the longest drive as far as clock use by either group the whole game. Truth be told, the Steelers just had one other drive which kept going longer than two minutes which brought about their second field objective after the Minkah Fitzpatrick capture attempt. This implies the Steelers had 11 drives during the game which just removed 2:00 or less from the clock.


The Steelers protection surrendered 168 yards hurrying on 40 endeavors to the 49ers on Sunday. While this is a concerning measurement, it is to a great extent from a consequence of the initial two numbers which were referenced. The Steelers guard invested altogether an excess of energy in the field Sunday and surrendered many hurrying yards late in the game as protectors had been on the field for a strangely significant time-frame.


Other than the two long plays which scored touchdowns, the Steelers passing game was practically nonexistent. Truth be told, the Steelers just had 59 getting yards which were not because of touchdowns. The 76-yard touchdown to JuJu Smith-Schuster and the 39-yard touchdown to Diontae Johnson was practically the whole offense on the day.
