Coming into this preseason, one of the points of emphasis for the Steelers was to create more turnovers, because in 2013 they managed just 20, including 10 interceptions. The team finished with two in the preseason opener, and both came courtesy of rookie free agent linebacker
The second came as the result of a nice play by outside linebacker Vic So’oto, who penetrated on an attempted swing pass to Thomas Gordon and got his hand on the ball. Jones scooped that one up and ran 28 yards for the touchdown that gave the Steelers a 16-13 lead with 10:16 left in the fourth quarter.
