The Pittsburgh Steelers were far from perfect on Sunday night when they hosted the Green Bay Packers at Heinz Field, but the team’s offense, mainly Antonio Brown and Ben Roethlisberger, were on point for a large portion of the evening.
One of the best aspects of the game are the intricacies which can only come out when you watch the game back and focus on specific players and tendencies.
Former Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor, now an analyst for the NFL Network, broke down one of the more perfect throw and catches the Steelers have performed this entire 2017 season.
Watch as Taylor diagrams the pre-snap reads by both Roethlisberger and Brown, the dime Roethlisberger puts in between two defenders, and Brown’s ability to maneuver his way down the sideline into the endzone.

Watching Roethlisberger and Brown together is a pleasure, and the past two games the duo has looked more and more like what fans have seen the past three seasons. If this continues, opposing defenses should be concerned as the Steelers’ offense might just be heating up.
