James Conner has had an emphatic response to anyone doubting his ability. After three mediocre games on the ground, Conner has 17 carries for 97 yards and two touchdowns after nearly three quarters of play. His second score of the game — set up by fullback Roosevelt Nix‘s blocked punt — gave the Steelers a 27-10 lead.

Conner, Pittsburgh’s third round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, is also the Steelers’ leading receiver with 65 receiving yards. And after a 1-2-1 start, Conner and the Steelers are in position to win their second game of the season and first game of the year at Heinz Field.
