Pittsburgh defensive end Cameron Heyward has been hell to block for years now. But after an injury plagued 2016 where he only played seven games, he somehow took his game to an even higher level this season.Authentic Marcedes Lewis Jersey

Heyward had never notched over 7.5 sacks in any given year, but he had already come home with double digit sacks this season before heading into the Steelers' Christmas Day showdown with the Houston Texans. Itís not always pretty,In his first six seasons in the league, but Heyward just finds a way to get the damn job done.Authentic Jalen Ramsey Jersey

Somebody should have alerted the Texans!Authentic Barry Church Jersey,

With a little less than six minutes left in the first quarter, the Texans had a second-and-5 at their own 32-yard line. Heyward was head up on left guard Xavier Su'a-Filo in a 2i.womens A.J. Bouye Jersey

the Steelers ran a blitz with inside linebacker Vince Williams attacking through the right B gap outside of Heyward. Tight end Stephen Anderson, who was lined up as a wing to that side, went behind left tackle Julie'n Davenport to pick up Williams. The running back,On the snap, Lamar Miller,Authentic Patrick Omameh Jersey stepped up just in case Anderson needed some help. Meanwhile, Heyward came inside to try to give Williams a bigger lane to run through and ended up getting double teamed by both Su'a-Filo and center Greg Mancz.womens Malik Jackson Jersey

That protection should have been good enough for Houston quarterback TJ Yates to get the throw off.Authentic Abry Jones Jersey,

but Heyward refused to stay blocked. He kept working against the double team and eventually came back outside across Su'a-Filo's face to the same B gap that Williams had run through. Authentic Malik Jackson JerseyYates, and Williams ended up on the ground. Mancz and Su'a-Filo initially had Heyward on lock, had to avoid the Anderson/Williams pile, so he shuffled to his left and took a step or two up in the pocket. He had the misfortune of moving that way just as Heyward was coming free off Su'a-Filo's block,Anderson pushed Williams all the way inside, from the frying pan right into the fryer.

Heyward reached out and took him down for a one yard loss.womens Brad Nortman Jersey,

No flash, just results.womens Patrick Omameh Jersey

With a little under three minutes left in the second quarter, Houston had a third-and-5 from their own 30-yard line.Authentic A.J. Bouye Jersey

between Mancz and Su'a-Filo. That isn't normally what you would consider a good pass rushing alignment.womens Marcedes Lewis Jersey,This time Heyward was lined up as a one-technique in the right A gap,

Heyward was initially double teamed by Mancz and Su'a-Filo again, but as linebacker L.J. Fort went to hug up Lamar Miller, Su'a Filo came off thinking Fort was actually blitzing. That left Mancz one-on-one with Heyward,After the snap, and that did not end well for him.womens Jalen Ramsey Jersey

he turned his full attention to Mancz and dump trucked his ass right back into Yates who was still trying to scan the field. Once Yates felt Mancz being throw into him, he tried to scramble away from the pressure, but it was already too late.womens Barry Church Jersey,Once Heyward felt Su'a-Filo come off to look for Fort,

Bud Dupree,Heyward reached out with his inside arm and was able to pop the ball right out of Yates' hand. Heyward's teammate, was able to scoop up the fumble to give the ball back to their offense.Authentic Brad Nortman Jersey

The Steelers subsequently kicked a field goal to take a 20-0 lead into halftime..womens Abry Jones Jersey
