Las Vegas Raiders: 3 Keys to victory against Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2
Stopping Najee Harris and this rushing attack
While the Las Vegas Raiders offensive line had their fair share of issues last week, the team’s defense did not. New defensive coordinator Gus Bradley put together an excellent game plan against Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. However, for most of the night, the Ravens’ traditional rushing attack was held in check.
This weekend, the task is similar. However, instead of accounting for arguably the most athletic quarterback running the football game, they get a break in facing Ben Roethlisberger. Granted, he is still not an easy signal-caller to bring down in the pocket.
But, despite that, Las Vegas must keep Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Najee Harris in check. They have the means to do it, and if they can, it will allow the defense to focus on the part of the Steelers’ offense that can be lethal.
