The special teams averaged 22 yards per kick return and 10 yards per punt return—with a near-miss on a Jeff Janis whiff on a punt that was so bad he never actually touched the ball—and allowed 19 yards a kick return and just one yard on four punt returns.

The best on special teams included:

K Mason Crosby: Crosby made his lone field goal attempt from 55 yards and averaged 59.3 yards on four kickoffs. Grade: B

FB Aaron Ripkowski: Ripkowski had two special teams tackles on kickoff coverage, giving him four coverage tackles in two preseason games. Grade: C+

FS Chris Banjo: Banjo made one tackle on punt coverage and was generally solid. Grade: C

The worst on special teams were:

WR Myles White: White picked up two penalties, one of which was declined, on the same punt, allowing the Steelers to start a drive at their own 25-yard line instead of at the 10. He was flagged for a face mask and then was hit for unsportsmanlike conduct. Grade: D

RB Alonzo Harris: It was just a bad day all around for Harris, who did nothing to distinguish himself for a roster spot on Sunday. Grade: C-

LB Adrian Hubbard: Hubbard had a decent day defensively, but was a non-factor on punt coverage. Grade: C-
