Le’Veon Bell Barrels For 204 Yards In Steelers Comeback Win

At the closing whistle of a back-and-forth affair between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans, Le'Veon Bell stood on the field with a torn jersey after carrying the ball 33 times in the game. He racked up an incredible 204 yards on those carries, good for 6.2 per run, including the touchdown that sparked a Steelers fourth quarter comeback. Pittsburgh won the game 27-24.
Bell's performance in the game could be described as monstrous, destructive, and unstoppable. He picked up large chunks on nearly every carry, breaking through would-be tacklers as he barreled repeatedly into the second level. Tennessee dared the Steelers to pass for most of the game, sending blitzes on seemingly every play. Instead, Pittsburgh let Bell pave the way for the squad.
Bell is the first 200-yard rusher on the season and the first Steeler reach the two-century mark since workhorse running back Willie Parker in 2006. His fourth quarter touchdown was too close for comfort and led to a review, but despite a questionable touchdown call, it's hard to argue that Bell wouldn't have picked up the extra inch or two on the ensuing play.
It was likely the best game from a running back this season, even taking into account Jonas Gray's four-touchdown performance last night for the New England Patriots.
