The Steelers are simplifying the defense after giving up 42 points to the Chiefs. Pittsburgh needs a boost after an 0-1-1 start and a Monday Night Football matchup with league passing leader Ryan Fitzpatrick. "It's not an excuse, but I think simplifying the game plan, letting us line up and make plays, line up to what we see (will help)," corner Joe Haden said. "We have to do a lot of film study, study the receivers and see where they line up at."
