Tomlin says the talent is there with O-line but needs to get better


After a slow start by the offensive line on Sunday, the Steelers who are on the field to protect Ben Roethlisberger did just enough to be the better O-line in Orchard Park and give the Steelers an upset win in Buffalo.

But the thing is, the Steelers O-line wasn’t facing the Steelers defense.

Roethlisberger took multiple hits and they were unable to establish a run game, with rookie Najee Harris picking up 45 yards on 19 carries.

But even though the offense on Sunday appeared to be similar to the 2020 version, with quick passes and short runs, coach Mike Tomlin is optimistic the offensive line, that only features one returning starter, will get better as the season progresses.
