Steelers bottle up Rams, continue surge as AFC playoff hopeful

PITTSBURGH – It figured that to spring every other disenchanted on their house turf, the Pittsburgh Steelers would wish to put it within the arms in their big-play protection.

Carried out.

Minkah Fitzpatrick picked off Jared Goff with 20 seconds left to keep a 17-12 victory in opposition to the Rams that driven Pittsburgh (Five-Four) above .500 for the primary time this season.

Fitzpatrick and his teammates accrued 4 takeaways in opposition to the protecting NFC champion Rams (Five-Four), and it has develop into a lifestyle for a unit sporting an injury-depleted offense. All the way through Pittsburgh’s four-game successful streak, the protection has produced 14 takeaways.
