Hargrave, who recorded one tackle (solo) in Sunday's win over the Browns, finishes up the 2017 season with 32 tackles (21 solo), including two sacks and a forced fumble, playing in all 16 games.
Hargrave matched his sack total from his rookie season, and provides a solid presence at nose tackle. His most dominating performance was a 10-tackle effort in Week 5 against Jacksonville, who Pittsburgh would host in the divisional round if the AFC playoff seeding holds form.
Hargrave led the Pittsburgh defense with 10 tackles (four solo) in their 30-9 loss to Jacksonville on Sunday.
Entering the game, Hargrave had just six tackles this season, although two were for sacks. The 10 tackles are a new career high for the second-year nose tackle. The Pittsburgh defense wasn't as bad as the score would indicate, with most of the damage coming off five Ben Roethlisberger interceptions, including two pick-sixes and two that resulted in touchdowns for the Jaguars on their ensuing drives.
Hargrave had two tackles (both solo), including a sack in Pittsburgh's 23-17 overtime loss to Chicago on Sunday.
Hargrave now has two sacks through his first three games this season, matching his total for all of 2016. He could add to that total in Week 4 against the Ravens, who allowed the Steelers to record five sacks in their two games last season.
