Frustrated Steelers defense looks to rebound during bye (The Associated Press)

The Pittsburgh Steelers defense is a frustrated and embarrassed group after back-to-back losses against Miami and New England. One day after defensive end Cameron Heyward said he felt like his defensive teammates quit during Sunday’s home loss against New England, defensive coordinator Keith Butler disagreed. Regardless, the Steelers hope to solve their problems stopping the run and rushing the passer, all while taking a break to recover from injury during the team’s upcoming bye week.
