MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - There is a player of the week because there has to be a player of the week, but it’s extremely difficult to pick out anything that was outstanding in what ended up being a 30-15 loss to the Dolphins here.

It couldn’t be anyone on a defense that allowed a 200-yard rushing day by Jay Ajayi and a 75 percent completion percentage to Ryan Tannehill. The offense managed one touchdown before garbage time, and Ben Roethlisberger threw two interceptions. Even Jordan Berry, who had been having a nice season as the punter, averaged only 36 yards on his five punts.

Le’Veon Bell finished with 53 yards rushing on 10 carries, plus another 55 yards on six catches. Bell is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.
