Through two games, no defense has been more impressive than the Pittsburgh Steelers, who are tied for the league lead with four interceptions and forced fumbles with five, and have bottled up two of the league’s best running backs (Michael Turner 42 yards, Chris Johnson 34 yards). They’re 2-0 without their offensive MVP, Ben Roethlisberger. A healthy Troy Polamalu has helped.

Ouch. Ouch. Ouch.
