After two good games, Dawson Knox reverted back to the type of player he was to start the year. The second-year tight end struggled to hold onto the ball or make key plays at pivotal moments. There was a stretch where Josh Allen rolled right and threw a jump ball up for Knox that he failed to come down with.
In the next play, Allen looked Knox’s way again and he caught this pass but fumbled it when he was hit. He did bounce back though and had a big 16-yard reception on third and 11 that helped keep the team’s drive alive as they were trying to run the clock down in the fourth quarter.
That one play though isn’t enough to bump his grade up too much.
The Pittsburgh Steelers do an excellent job getting pressure on the opposing quarterback and this week was no different, especially in the first half. While Josh Allen was sacked only once, he was hit five times. That pressure also caused the interception thrown by Allen when his arm was hit in the windup.
While most of the pressure came up the middle, one player who had a really good game was right tackle Daryl Williams. He was tasked for most of the game to slow down T.J. Watt, who had 12 sacks coming into this game. The surprising part was that it seemed the gameplan called for Williams to slow down Watt without much help, and for the most part he won that battle.
