Steelers looking to shore up leaky defense
The Associated Press
PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Steelers' revamped defense has plenty to work on with less than two weeks go to until the season opener against Cleveland.
The Philadelphia Eagles roasted Pittsburgh's defensive starters in a 31-21 victory last week. Philadelphia raced to a quick 24-point lead and moved the ball at ease behind quarterback Nick Foles.
Steelers safety Troy Polamalu says it's too early to panic, but Pittsburgh needs to regroup. The Steelers wrap up the preseason Thursday night against Carolina, with most of the starters expected to sit out.
