Coty Sensabaugh, Sean Davis, Mike Hilton and Robert Golden each recorded picks in Pittsburgh’s victory over the Titans on Thursday Night Football. Pittsburgh’s defense was so opportunistic in their 40-17 victory that the Steelers asked the Miami Hurricanes to assist in their turnover celebrations.

While Pittsburgh may or may not get the opportunity to borrow Miami’s turnover chain (the Hurricanes will be in town next Friday when they face Pitt), one thing that is clear is how the Steelers’ defense has become arguably the NFL’s best unit while playing a vital role in the team’s 8-2 start to the 2017 season.

“We just enjoy playing with each other,” Sensabaugh told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Ray Fittipaldo. “It’s a group that is very energized and loves playing with each other no matter who is in there.”

Another thing that’s clear is the depth in Pittsburgh’s secondary, as Sensabaugh and Golden more than held their own while replacing injured starters Mike Mitchell and Joe Haden.

“The standard is the standard; it’s the next man up mentality,” Davis said. “They came up with plays. You can’t ask for anything better than that.”

“Every day you have to prepare as if you’re going to get in the game,” Golden added. “When guys go down we have to pop up and get in the game. When Joe went down, Coty had to step in. When Mike went down I had to step in. You never know when your name is going to be called, but when it’s called you have to be prepared.”
