The third week of the NFL Preseason gives teams a chance to give starters a little bit of action before the season begins for real two weeks later.

Pittsburgh Steelers and former Tennessee defensive back Cam Sutton made the most of his week three preseason action, intercepting a pass early in the second quarter of the Steelers’, 19-9, win over Detroit.

Sutton stepped in front of a David Blough pass and returned it 45 yards into Detroit territory, setting up a Pittsburgh field goal.

While Jared Goff — not Blough — is Detroit’s starting quarterback, Goff did not play in the preseason finale and the rest of the Lions’ offensive starters were still in the game.

Sutton is entering his sixth season in the NFL and the Steelers where he’s carved out a major role on one of the league’s top defenses.

The former Tennessee standout is coming off his best professional season. Starting in 16 games, Sutton recorded a career-high two interceptions and a career-high 52 tackles. Sutton also added six pass deflections and a forced fumble in his fifth professional season.

Pittsburgh found great value in Sutton, selecting him in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft after he totaled seven interceptions in his four-year collegiate career.

The Steelers open their 2022 season on Sept. 11 at Cincinnati, a day after Tennessee battles the Pitt panthers in Pittsburgh.
