A breakdown of the Steelers’ red-zone success in Week 10 vs. the Colts

The Steelers’ red-zone offense has struggled throughout 2017, but they got the job done when it mattered in Week 10.

There is no doubt the Steelers’ red-zone offense has struggled throughout the 2017 regular season. Anyone who watches the team on a regular basis knows this, but they have seen more success their past two games against the Lions and Colts.

In Week 10, vs. Indianapolis, the Steelers finished 2-for-4 in the red-zone, and many are asking what was the reason for the team’s success in this area. For those wondering, Brian Baldinger of the NFL Network diagnosed the two touchdowns the Steelers had last Sunday, and broke them down for fans.

It is always interesting to hear “Baldy” talk about the Steelers and the inner-workings of the game of football. For an added bonus, Baldinger also broke down the key third down pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Antonio Brown, with a player pulling his jersey down while throwing the pass. Side Note: When watching this play it reminded me of a pass Roethlisberger threw to Hines Ward vs. the Jaguars a few years ago, which was another huge completion which iced away the game.

Check out the breakdowns below:
