Steelers playing well in all areas during 3-0 start

PITTSBURGH (AP) Mike Tomlin calls it "complementary" football, the ability of one unit of the Pittsburgh Steelers to feed off the other.

The longtime Steelers coach insists it's not a one-way street either. The offense can feed the defense just as easily as the defense can feed the offense.

However Tomlin wants to describe it, it was on full display in Sunday's 28-21 comeback victory over Houston. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw passes to eight different players. Four running backs got at least one carry. Five different defenders were credited with at least a half sack. Fourteen defenders had at least one tackle.
