When asked about Peterson after the game, Gay told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, “He can’t be human. Dude’s made of steel.”
Peterson is the best tailback in the NFL, but Pittsburgh’s defense did a good job of corralling him Sunday. Peterson was held to 69 yards rushing and 3.8 yards per carry in a 27-17 win for the Steelers (5-2).
Gay lost this individual matchup, but at least he got the victory.
