Steelers trying to shore up leaky run defense

PITTSBURGH (AP) Two weeks into his NFL career, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier is already well-versed in what's troubling a defense that hardly looks like its old self.

"Sometimes we take bad angles, sometimes we use the wrong technique for tackles," the rookie linebacker said. "We've got to wrap up and grab cloth instead of trying to use our shoulder and go through people."

Too often through eight bumpy quarters the Steelers (1-1) have let an opposing running back bounce off them for big plays. Pittsburgh has allowed 340 yards on the ground and an alarming 5.0 yards per carry so far - hardly the return to physical dominance the team promised after an uncharacteristically sloppy 2013. Last season, the defense finished outside the top 10 against the run for the first time in a decade.
