JAMES HARRISONOutside Linebacker
James Harrison played to an audience that included Roger Goodell, and he was a star of the show. Harrison finished with six tackles, one sack, three tackles for loss and two passes defensed, including a hit on Jordan Shipley that knocked the ball out on fourth-and-5 with less than a minute left and the Steelers protecting a 27-21 lead.
Harrison is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.
