Keisel had, possibly, his best game of the season. He made his presence felt on the Washington Redskins’ first possession of the game. On 3rd and 1, he teamed with Larry Foote to make a tackle for a three yard loss and force a punt. He teamed for another tackle in the second quarter, and got is final tackle on a solo take down in the fourth quarter when the Redskins were trying to comeback and win the game. His final tackle resulted in a seven yard loss, and set up a 3rd and 17. The Steelers won 27-12. It was the third time this season that Keisel has had three tackles or more.
