Carlos Hyde has caught the attention of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

After Hyde rushed for 168 yards and two scores in primetime, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin took notice.

"160-plus speaks for itself," Mike Tomlin said on a conference call, via San Jose Mercury News. "He did an awesome job, but they all did an awesome job collectively contributing to the run game."

For a 49ers offensive line that went through some turnover in the offseason, it appeared as if there were no such problems in Week 1.

Now entering Week 2 against the Steelers, the 49ers hope an encore is in store.
