Steelers DE Cam Heyward in midst of breakout season

PITTSBURGH (AP) Cam Heyward is not aware of the history he is chasing. The Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end doesn't particularly care either.

Heyward's two sacks last week against Tennessee pushed his season total to seven. If he comes up with three more over the next six games for the AFC North leader, he'll become the first Pittsburgh defensive lineman to reach double-digit sacks since Keith Willis racked up 12 in 1986.

Heyward took several attempts at it when asked if he knew the previous time a member of the Steelers' defensive front reached 10 sacks. He gave up after a handful of tries.
