Steelers burn Redskins on 4th-and-1 with play-action TD pass to Antonio Brown

BY foxsports • November 15, 2016

The Steelers were already down 6-0 to the Redskins early in the second quarter, and were faced with a fourth-and-1 from the Washington 29. Pittsburgh couldn't afford to come away without any points, and a Redskins defense that was terrible against the run last season braced for a rush up the middle.

But the Steelers boldly chose to call a play-action pass instead, and Ben Roethlisberger threw a perfect pass to a double-covered Antonio Brown, who hauled in the touchdown.

This wasn't quite as gutsy as the Raiders going for two with the game on the line in New Orleans on Sunday, but it was pretty close.
