Steelers red-zone D looks to keep opposition out of end zone

PITTSBURGH (AP) Once opponents get into the red zone, the Steelers take it as a challenge to keep them out of the end zone.

That's part of the reason why Pittsburgh's defense leads the league in stops inside the 20-yard line, including four goal-line stands in the past two weeks, entering Sunday's road game against the Buffalo Bills.

"It's a short field and teams feel like they can get it on you," Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons said. "They want to get one up on you, so as a defense, when you stop that, you go out there and assert yourself in a certain way and that's what we do."
