Steelers Lay Waste to Newton and the Panthers; Slam Carolina 52-21 in Offensive Avalanche

2. Big Plays from the Offense

After the Panthers got their opening touchdown, it took the Steelers one play to tie the game, as Ben Roethlisberger threw a perfect pass on cover 3, hitting JuJu Smith-Schuster for a 75-yard score to make it seven all.

Up 24-14 in the second quarter, the Steelers and the offense went back to work, with Ben this time hitting Antonio Brown with another excellent pass, a 53-yard score that was the dagger, making it 31-14.

The offense scored on every drive with the game in question, and it was such an impressive effort not only with Ben hitting all the big plays, but also they didn’t overwork James Conner, as he ran the ball just 13 times for 65 yards and a score before leaving the game in the 4th quarter to have a possible concussion looked at.

Again this effort against a solid Panthers defense was more impressive from the standpoint that they did it on a short week with just one real practice to get ready for the Cats.
