"To be honest with you, it really doesn't change anything that we do on defense," Harrison said. "On defense we are supposed to go out there and pitch a shutout. I mean, that's what you are supposed to do on defense, prepare to go out there and stop offenses from scoring. So in the reality of things, if we go out there and do our jobs to perfection, there is no way we can lose a game."
The Steelers' defense has been more stout than anticipated this season, especially the front seven. Pittsburgh has 17 sacks (tied for sixth-most in NFL) and has multiple takeaways in three straight games.
At 37, Harrison continues to defy the aging gods. He has two sacks on the season, Pro Football Focus has rated him their No. 5 overall 3-4 outside linebacker and he's the Steelers' most consistent edge rusher. Around The NFL's Chris Wesseling declared Harrison the hardest hitter of his generation on Tuesday's podcast.
