The Pittsburgh Steelers have 37 seasons of experience starting in their secondary, ranking them second in the NFL behind only Ed Reed.

Troy Polamalu, Ryan Clark and Ike Taylor have played together for eight consecutive seasons.

“This is one of the most athletic secondaries that I ever played with,” Taylor said. “It goes (Super Bowl winning years of) 2008, 2005 and to be determined with this one. But let me tell you: This one has the potential, and I don't care how old we are. We were No. 1 last year, but we can be even better this year.”

The Steelers were fairly dominant against the pass a season ago. They allowed a NFL-low 185.2 yards per game through the air and allowed one 300-yard passing game.
