Steelers surging after Week 9 win over New York Giants

Steelers roll through Giants on the strength and speed of running back Isaac Redman.

If there was a question heading into the Steelers Week 9 game against the New York Giants as to who the better quarterback was, an answer was provided. Maybe not a definitive answer, but an answer nonetheless.

Isaac Redman was the best running back on the field, as the Steelers defeated the defending Super Bowl champions 24-20 in East Rutherford, N.J., Sunday.

Neither team's passing offense clicked throughout the game but the Steelers running game plowed through the Giants soft defense, rushing for 147 yards and 4.5 yards per carry. His 147 yards and 26 carries were both regular season highs for Redman.

In a game highlighted by quarterbacks known for their fourth quarter heroics, Redman, a native of nearby Gloucester County, N.J., had a one-yard touchdown run to take a 24-20 lead, then, on the Steelers next possession, rushed for 28 yards on first and 10, sealing the win for the Steelers.
