MNF MVP: 49ers Defense Was Lights Out

It would be an injustice to say that one man on the 49ers defense was an MVP because this was a total domination from all positions. This defense held the Steelers to just 3 points and forced 4 turnovers (3 interceptions, 1 fumble). They made QB Ben Roethlisberger's day pretty rough sacking him 3 times. CB Carlos Rogers, S Dashon Goldson and CB Tarell Brown made interceptions, while Rookie of the Year candidate LB Aldon Smith had 2 1/2 sacks. They say defense wins championships and this D is about as good as it gets.
