The Steelers have thrived off creating big plays on offense during pivotal moments in games, and that’s exactly what they did in Sunday’s Week 2 showdown with the Broncos.
Pittsburgh dominated Denver in the first half of the game, but simply could not jump out to a commanding lead. Eventually, however, they did exactly that, via the arm of Ben Roethlisberger.
The Steelers quarterback uncorked a dime throw to Chase Claypool, hitting his receiver in stride. Claypool then did the rest, catching the ball and taking it to the house for an 84-yard touchdown.
That 84-yard catch-and-run was the longest touchdown of the NFL season so far.
