It's called legit defense or if you prefer Troy Polamalu, he makes that big a difference. Well that and the fact that the Steelers have decided to run the ball to set up the pass like they used to but got away from it for awhile. They keep that defense fresh and a fresh Polamalu is an offense wrecker.
Though I'll also say it doesn't hurt getting a soft schedule from the NFL to start the season, that helps.
