The Steelers certainly didn’t make their Sunday night showdown with the Detroit Lions at Ford Field easy, but thanks to a couple goal line stands that you had to see to believe, the black and gold are 6-2 with a 20-15 win.
Matthew Stafford carved up the Steelers D like a Thanksgiving turkey, but despite Detroit getting 18 snaps inside the 20, the Steelers D stopped the Lions each and every time and, thanks to that walked away with a win.
JuJu Smith-Schuster was the hero on offense, and he’s making Martavis Bryant look like an afterthought, as he caught seven passes including a huge 97-yard catch-and-run in the third quarter that put the Steelers ahead for good 20-12.
It’s a great feeling to win a game when you don’t play your best, and the Steelers did that Sunday evening, and will now get a chance to get a rest before they play five of their next seven games at home.
Here’s three takeaways from the win on Sunday night.
