Coming into the season, everyone knew the Pittsburgh Steelers were going to field a scary defense, and through three weeks, they have done that and then some. With one of the most talented front seven's in the NFL, Pittsburgh has been phenomenal at getting to the quarterback.

In fact, through three weeks, Pittsburgh has recorded 15 sacks, which is more than any other team has had in its first three games since the 2006 season.

With Ben Roethlisberger back under center, and a talented defense playing this well, the sky is the limit for the Steelers this season. And if they keep getting to the quarterback as they are, they will be raising a lot of money off great things off the field as well.
