Ben Roethlisberger throws longest TD of season to Chase Claypool (Video)

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.
