The Falcons stout run game will be put to the test against the sixth best rushing defense in the league with veterans Cameron Heyward and T.J. Watt leading that charge on the Steelers defensive front. It'll be a physical matchup on both sides of the ball through all four quarters at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Sunday.
