Conner was greeted with an ovation on the third series of the game when he made his first carry.
Another fresh name for the game will be James Conner. The Steelers broke training camp at Saint Vincent College and will return to work Monday at the UPMC-Rooney Sports Complex after Sunday's game. So for him, it was a long time to get back on the field. "More than anything, I'm going to give him as much as he can handle". The big plays for the Steelers were a 24-yard pass interference penalty committed against Darrius Heyward-Bey and a 23-yard completion from Joshua Dobbs to Martavis Bryant. He led the team with 74 yards on just three receptions. It would be behind a starting offensive line missing Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey and left guard Ramon Foster in the first half and a patchwork line in the second half.
"I was glad to play with my brothers and in front of the fans - the best fans in the world - and I'm just happy to be back out here", Bryant said.
Watt got the nod as the week one starter after his breakout performance against the Giants.
The Falcons did not play star receiver Julio Jones or running back Devonta Freeman, but their replacements had no problem finding holes in the Steelers' defense, even after third-string quarterback Matt Simms took over for the remainder of the first half. The former Wyoming product player also struggled in the team's first preseason game against Miami, gaining 10 yards on nine carries.
Jay Z and Pink among headliners at V Festival
More than 70,000 fans have flocked to the festival with wellies at the ready, although the rain has held off in the main so far. With the likes of Jay Z, Pink and Ellie Goulding on the line-up this year, expectations for V Festival have been sky-high.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin held out Brown for the second straight preseason game.
With the third-year pro seemingly completely healthy after breaking a leg last season, this could be the season he becomes one of the top five or six QBs in the league, evenly risky running or passing.
The Falcons game is particularly important for Dobbs because neither Ben Roethlisberger nor Jones will play.
When it was starters vs. starters, the Falcons looked ...: Sharp, on both sides of the ball. The 2014 fourth-round draft pick averaged 21.1 yards per catch as a rookie and 15.3 in his second season while setting a team record with 14 touchdowns in his first 16 career games.
"A little nervous", Bryant admitted about his return to Heinz Field.
