Steelers work to cut down on penalties

(TSX / STATS) -- PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers lead the NFL in one category they'd rather not: penalties.

After two games, the Steelers have committed 23 penalties for 215 yards. That's three more penalties than any other team for 27 more yards than the next most penalized team.

The Steelers are 2-0 after beating the Vikings, 26-9, Sunday at Heinz Field, but head coach Mike Tomlin knows the Steelers can't continue to commit self-inflicted wounds and expect to continue winning.
