Le’Veon Bell put on a clinic in patient running Sunday, and his third-quarter touchdown was a perfect example.
Bell took a handoff and cut to the left, where he had pulling right guard David DeCastro and fullback Roosevelt Nix leading the way. Bell waited patiently for his blockers to handle Bills defenders and practically walked into the end zone for his third touchdown of the day, a new career high.
But patience was only one attribute Bell had on display Sunday. He also showed power, speed and elusiveness, dodging Bills defenders all over the field to put up 239 combined rushing and receiving yards through 45 minutes.
Bell at least he gave fans something to watch in the third quarter. The Steelers didn’t turn the ball over, which was all the Bills’ offense had been built on in the first half.
The Bills offense had two possessions in the third quarter, on which they gained 20 total yards and punted twice. Tyrod Taylor was 2 for 6 passing.
Glenn back: Cordy Glenn returned at left tackle after halftime. He left the game in the first half due to a back injury.
