Steelers Win Football Game Last Night
The Pittsburgh Steelers made history last night after an exciting home game win. The Steelers defeated the Jets in a hard fought battle with the score of 28 to 24. The Steelers have been one of the best teams in the National Football League (NFL) this season, and last night was no different.
Steelers Come Out on Top
The game was back and forth throughout the first three quarters as both teams put up points. The Steelers took the lead in the fourth quarter after quarterback Ben Roethlisberger connected on a 14-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. The Steelers were able to hold off the Jets for the rest of the game to secure the victory.
Players Who Stepped Up
There were several Pittsburgh players who stood out during the game. Roethlisberger had a great performance, throwing for 331 yards and two touchdowns. Running back James Conner ran for 85 yards and a score, while receiver Diontae Johnson had seven catches for 91 yards.
On the defensive side of the ball, cornerback Joe Haden was able to force two key takeaways. Linebacker Devin Bush Jr. put together a team-best 14 tackles and safety Minkah Fitzpatrick had a crucial interception late in the game.
Steelers Remain Undefeated
With the win last night, the Steelers remain undefeated on the season. They now have an impressive record of 11-0, and they are in firm control of first place in the AFC North division.
The Steelers will look to remain unbeaten this upcoming Sunday as they take on the Washington Football Team.
With this victory, the Steelers have made history. They have become the first team in NFL history to start 11-0 in back-to-back seasons. The team has also surpassed their marks from last season, when they set a franchise record with a 12-4 record.
The Steelers have also tied an NFL record for consecutive wins. They are now tied with the New England Patriots (2007-09) and the San Francisco 49ers (1989-90) for the fourth-most consecutive wins of all-time with 14.
It’s safe to say the Steelers are having a great season, and this win last night highlights the teams’s dominance this season.
