Practice is off to a good start this week and I think guys are really getting locked in for our game against the Steelers. We know it’s going to be a challenge to play at at their place because those fans get loud. I think we’ve done a great job of working on our communication this week and we’ll be able to be on the same page even with all the noise.
Our offense is in a good spot right now. We have to continue to focus on the things that we do really well. But there are certainly things that we know we need to be working on. We got into the red zone a few times against the Bengals and we didn’t come away with touchdowns. That’s something we’ve been working on this week so that we can get it corrected and convert the scoring chances that come our way.
We’re going to have to earn those chances this week against the Steelers. They have difference makers spread through all three levels of their defense, so you can’t just watch for one or two guys. Cam Heyward is a big, physical, disruptive presence on their line. They’ve been dealing with a lot of injuries too but I think their guys have stepped up and they’ll be ready for us.
We’re looking forward to getting Devonta out there this week. He brings a lot to the run and pass game while giving us another explosive player on the field. Guys are coming back and stepping up, so I think we’re on the rise at the right time. I can’t wait to get back on the field and get rolling.
