Pittsburgh Steelers dangerous player No. 2- Cam Heyward, defensive tackle
Cam Heyward has been a major problem for the Browns and the entire NFL for what seems like forever. He has been one of the rare players that have continued to get better and have one of the best seasons in his 30s.
So far, the former Ohio State superstar has shown no signs of slowing down and is a major factor in the Steelers’ stout defense.
During the 2021 season, Heyward finished with 10 sacks, 15 tackles for loss, 32 total pressures and only missing 5 tackles. Heyward is the definition of an immovable object in the middle of the defensive line against the run who consistently just eats blocks and makes plays.
Cleveland has one of the best offensive lines in football, especially at guard, yet game in and game out Heyward gives them fits. The attention he draws helps one of the best pass rushers in the NFL cause havoc from the other end of the defensive line.
Maybe he will start to slow down as he gets into his 30s but the Browns will absolutely have to have a plan to slow him down if they are to beat their hated rival this season.
