4 things that stood out vs. Arizona

  • In his first game back following a four-game suspension, Martavis Bryant was a huge difference-maker for the offense. Bryant had six receptions for 137 yards and two touchdowns. On his first touchdown Bryant magically kept his feet in bounds for an eight-yard catch from Landry Jones. On the second touchdown, he caught the ball and then left defenders heads spinning as he turned it into an 88-yard score to secure the 25-13 win.
  • Landry Jones had never thrown a pass in a regular season game prior to the Cardinals game, and his first completion … none other than the eight-yard touchdown pass to Bryant. Jones came in to the game early when Mike Vick had to come out because he had what was announced as dirt in his eye. Jones returned when Vick injured his hamstring and led the Steelers to victory. Jones finished with eight completions for 168 yards and two touchdowns.
  • The Steelers have been searching for a kicker and after two weeks it looks like they found one in Chris Boswell. Boswell, who was calm under pressure, was perfect against the Cardinals connecting on kicks from 47, 48, 51 and 28 yards.
  • In what was pegged as a rematch of Super Bowl XLIII, linebacker James Harrison was once again a nightmare for the Arizona Cardinals. Harrison, who had a 100-yard interception return for a touchdown against the Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII, had a forced fumble, sack, and four tackles, two of them for a loss, in the Steelers 25-13 win at Heinz Field. He wasn't the only one who came up big in the turnover category. Mike Mitchell had an interception in the end zone to end a potential Cardinals' scoring drive, and recovered a fumble. Lawrence Timmons also had an interception.
