Haden's arrival hastens maturation of Steelers' secondary

PITTSBURGH (AP) The defensive game plan for Joe Haden was always pretty simple for the two-time Pro Bowl cornerback during his time Cleveland, particularly whenever the Browns faced Cincinnati. All Haden had to do before every snap was locate Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green coming out of the huddle, then shadow Green wherever he went.

Haden's assignment on Sunday will be considerably different, a testament to the comforts of his new job in Pittsburgh. When the first-place Steelers (4-2) welcome the Bengals (2-3), Haden doesn't have to search for Green's familiar No. 18. Instead, Haden set up at left corner. Artie Burns set up on the right.

And the NFL's second-ranked secondary, one that's become an important part of Pittsburgh's defensive renaissance, will takes its chances.
