Smith-Schuster’s performance didn’t just seem big, it was a large reason why the Steelers were able to escape Ford Field with a win heading into their bye week. The rookie’s performance, which included a 97-yard catch-and-run touchdown, earned him some NFL accolades.
JuJu Smith-Schuster is your AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
As stated above, Smith-Schuster is just the 2nd Steelers rookie to earn the honor, something Ben Roethlisberger did as a rookie in 2004.
Smith-Schuster didn’t just have one good game, but has been a solid presence in the Steelers’ passing attack throughout the first half of the season.
A big congratulations to Smith-Schuster for the honor, as he is quickly becoming one of the darlings of the Pittsburgh Steelers fan base.
