Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell said persistence got running game going against Ravens

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell had his first big game of the season against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4.

He rushed for 144 yards and 2 touchdowns, and also hauled in 4 passes for 42 yards. During the post-game press conference, he talked about persistence being the reason for his success on Sunday.

“Today we did a good job of kind of just sticking to the run,” Bell said. “The gaps and the holes wasn’t big at first in the first half, and even in the third quarter. We knew that going in, the Ravens was going to play the run tough. Our O-line just kept digging at it, digging at it, and eventually the holes got a little bigger, and I was able to make some plays on the second level.”

Those plays helped lead the Steelers to a 26-9 victory against the Ravens, and a comfortable lead in the AFC North with a quarter of the 2017 season in the books.

With New England Patriots falling to 2-2, the Steelers are beginning to distance themselves from the rest of the AFC. They don’t need a performance like Week 4 from Bell every week, but teams will be on high alert after seeing his numbers.
