Foote, who finished with six tackles, a sack, and a forced fumble, remained upbeat as the Steelers get a couple extra days to solve their on-field problems, not to mention a few more bites by the injury bug.

“Our goals are still reachable. I’m excited to see how we’re going to respond. We’ve only played five games. We’ve got 11 left.”

He spoke further about the Steelers’ difficulty winning on the road, now that the team has dropped four of five away from Heinz Field dating back to last season:

The Steelers (2-3) visit Cincinnati (3-2) next Sunday night.
