The Steelers, 28-20 winners over Detroit, got three sacks
from 2008 Defensive Player of the Year James Harrison, whose season total is up to six quarterback takedowns.
Steelers WR Limas Sweed was active
for Sunday’s win, but played sparingly and didn’t catch the one pass thrown his way.
Rookie Mike Wallace, who beat out Sweed for the third receiver job, dropped a would-be touchdown bomb
from QB Ben Roethlisberger and had a delay-of-game penalty for kicking the ball.
Making his first start of the season, Lions QB Daunte Culpepper looked noticeably trim
and rushed for 32 yards on a first-quarter scramble, but also took seven sacks.
