The Steelers had two new starters on the right side of their offensive line, and it showed in the running game until James Conner broke off a 59-yard run in the final minute.

But Ben Roethlisberger was sacked only once and said he had no worries how right tackle Chuks Okorafor and rookie guard Kevin Dotson would perform in Sunday’s 26-21 victory against the Denver Broncos.

“I had confidence coming in that they would,” Roethlisberger said. “Those guys put the time, the effort, in. Obviously we knew that Chuks is a guy that was battling with Banner for the chance to start this year, so we know what he’s capable of doing. He’s played in the past for us. And as for (Kevin) Dotson, we were excited for him. I mean, the young man grew up a Steelers fan.”
