The Pittsburgh Steelers were able to defeat the Cincinnati Bengals in overtime in Week 1, but it wasn’t always pretty. In fact, sometimes it was downright ugly. One thing which rings true with Pittsburgh is their stout defense. Throughout the 4+ quarters played, the Steelers defense did more than just their job.
When talking about breaking down the game, not many do it better than NFL Network’s Brian Baldinger. “Baldy’s Breakdowns” aren’t just on the NFL Network, but mostly straight from his Twitter feed. It isn’t a complex system, just Baldinger with a clicker in one hand, and his cell phone recording video in the other.
He took to the film to break down the Steelers win over AFC North rival Cincinnati, and he spent plenty of time showing love to the black-and-gold. Check out what he said, and what he broke down, in the videos below:
Minkah Fitzpatrick Pick-6
Minkah Fitzpatrick blocked XP
.@Steelers @minkfitz_21 with a “pick 6” and the blocked xtra point to send this game into OT. I am sure Mike T has said a million times; play every play like it’s your last. Well Done. #BaldysBreakdowns pic.twitter.com/uNlRdaTJlo— Brian Baldinger (@BaldyNFL) September 12, 2022
Arthur Maulet Strip Sack
.@Steelers this smells like great defense. Joe Burrow doesn’t wanna see this defense for awhile. Defensive front crushed the rebuilt Bengal O-line. Benefit of long hard days in Latrobe this summer #BaldysBrealdowns pic.twitter.com/mOZ4sDA5SQ— Brian Baldinger (@BaldyNFL) September 12, 2022
