On a night where the offense couldn't have been much better, a lot of credit has to go to Todd Haley. He called a brilliant game plan that mixed ball control through the run and a deft passing attack that showed Ben Roethlisberger at his best.
There were two elements of the game that I found to be most impressive. The first was the way the Steelers were able to consistently convert third downs. This was something that was an abject disaster under Bruce Arians. On this night, Heath Miller was used effectively to make the plays on third down.
The other aspect was the red-zone offense. The Steelers scored twice inside the 20-yard line. Coincidentally, both were on pass plays from inside the five. That's notable because the Steelers ran almost exclusively inside the five last year and struggled to produce anything.
If this is what we can expect from Haley's offense, I think we're in for quite a treat.
