Redskins vs. Steelers: Final Game Grades and Analysis for Pittsburgh

The Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3) won their fifth straight game over the Washington Redskins (3-5), securing their first winning record of 2012 before the loyal fans of Heinz Field.

Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris had been the gears behind a dangerous 'Skins offense, but an early deficit effectively eliminated Morris from the gameplan.  Without run support, RG3 held his own performance-wise, but his statistics suffered from 10 dropped passes. 

Sporting their 80th anniverary prison gear (uniforms), the Steelers were masterful offensively.  Jonathan Dwyer eclipsed 100 yards for the second straight game, and Ben Roethlisberger confounded the Redskins secondary with another great showing.  Two of his three touchdowns came to unexpected recipients, Leonard Pope and Will Johnson.

The end result was a 27-12 victory for the Steelers, who now only trail the Ravens by one game in the AFC North.  Here are the game grades and analysis from Week 8's critical interconference showdown.
