The Washington Redskins were humbled 27-12 Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh, as the AFC North's Steelers defeated them in all phases of the contest. 

At Heinz Field, Pittsburgh successfully took away Washington's ground attack, which in turn, hurt the Redskins passing game. 

So much of what the Redskins do well on offense is predicated on play-action tosses by Robert Griffin III. But Pittsburgh defense stymied that strategy by limiting Washington to just 86 yards rushing.

Griffin mustered just eight yards on six attempts and was held under 10 yards rushing for the second time this season. In Week 5, RGIII gained seven yards on one carry, before leaving the Atlanta game with a concussion.

Washington's run totals were eye-opening because the Redskins entered the contest ranked first in rushing yards per game with 177.

Also troubling was a season-high 10 drops by the Skins' pass catchers.
