Up 5-0 in the second quarter, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger runs to his right to find his favorite target Antonio Brown in double coverage in the back of the Giants end zone for six points. The Randy Bullock PAT would make it 11-0 Steelers.
This particular touchdown drive by the Steelers was largely set up by a great defensive play by linebacker Lawrence Timmons. Timmons would pick off New York quarterback Eli Manning at the goal line before making headway up field for a huge interception return.
Pittsburgh is an incredibly difficult team to beat at Heinz Field in December. The Steelers are built to win in cold weather and are doing so in the early part of their Week 13 game against the Giants.
Roethlisberger continues to shine when throwing outside of the pocket. He is world-class at buying time for his receivers to get open. His uncanny ability to thread the needle while scrambling will put him into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility.
Brown is quickly becoming one of the best wide receivers in the NFL over the last five years. Plays like the one he just made against the Giants defensive backfield make him a perennial Pro Bowl wide receiver for Pittsburgh. What a catch!
