Happy Gameday everyone. As we get ready for the 4:30 p.m. kickoff, I have a couple more stats to share.
I went back and logged every Ravens’ pass play in the first two Steelers-Ravens games this year. I posted some of the findings over at FanHouse, including a look at how important it is for the Steelers to get pressure on Joe Flacco — his yards per completion are cut in half when the Steelers get pressure on him.
But I also wanted to spell out just how important LaMarr Woodley is to the Steelers’ pressure package. What jumped out in logging every Steelers’ pass rush is that Woodley was sent more often than James Harrison — 14 more times, in fact, in the first two games.
Here are the numbers for each non-defensive lineman and how many times they rushed in the first two games.
