Trubisky: Steelers’ offense needs to be tougher

In the season opener, the Steelers defense contributed a total of 5 ball transitions, but the team ultimately scored only 17 points. Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky wasn’t happy about that.

“When the defensive team performs well and keeps getting the ball for the team, (the offense team) must also do their job well within the points. We must have the consciousness to kill the game and have a more fierce spirit to let the team lead by a big score. , instead of being stuck all the time,” Trubisky said.

Minkah Fitzpatrick’s interception and return for a touchdown contributed seven of those points, and all but one touchdown and a free-kick field goal ended with punts.

“The defense got the ball for us, and we have to convert those into points,” Trubisky said. “That’s my way of thinking. When the opportunity to change the ball comes, we have to get touchdowns, and we can’t settle for it.” Free kick.”

Trubisky had only 2 of 7 passes of 20 yards or more, and he completed 21 of 38 passes for 194 yards and one touchdown.
