--Linebacker James Farrior has seven of his eight sacks in the past five games as he and his defense crank up pressure on the quarterback.

"We're getting out there and getting to the point where we're playing to the level we're capable of and making plays when we need them," said Harrison, the NFL defensive player of the year when he set the team record with 16 sacks in 2008.

--While other stadiums across the NFL landscape experience blackouts and dips in their attendance, fans are flowing through the gates at Heinz Field at a record pace. The average attendance at home after four games is nearly 2,000 more than in the Steelers' Super Bowl season. They average 64,788 in a stadium that holds 65,050. The Steelers count attendance and not tickets sold; they have sold out every home game since 1972.
