The Pittsburgh Steelers needed a bounce-back win.
It was loud and clear that something had to change after that heartbreaking loss to the Cleveland Browns.
The team fired Matt Canda in hopes of revamping the offense, and while struggles aren’t usually just one guy’s fault, it seemed to have worked.
However, when asked about it, veteran star Cam Heyward admitted that it was a collective effort, as the guys in the locker room were hurt and angry after letting a win slip in the game vs. the Cleveland Browns.
Talking to Pete Schrager on Good Morning Football, Heyward praised his teammates for rallying together and putting together a solid collective effort to get a much-needed win.

Despite all the criticism and the subpar offensive play, the Steelers still have a chance not only to make the playoffs but also to win the division.
We already knew what the defense was capable of, and they’ve shown up day in and day out thus far this season.
If the offense can replicate the same performance they had on Sunday, this team is going to be a major problem.
Of course, putting up 16 points is nothing to brag about, and there are still some major tweaks to make, but finding some sort of offensive balance and production could do wonders for this pesky, hard-fighting team.
It’s easy to blame one guy when multiple people messed up.
But numbers don’t lie, and the post-Canada numbers, at least on a small sample size, were significantly better.
