At the kickoff of the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. the Carolina Panthers game, we were waiting one of the best matches on Thursday Night Football . Five minutes in the game, it still looked like it was true.
But quite soon after that, the game became a Steelers blowout that ended in a 52-21 beatdown of Panthers that was not even so close. As Cam Newton said after the match, ” We were adjusted .” Steelers won his fifth game in a row and the pledges are now 0-4 full time at Heinz Field.
Here’s a wide-scale look at how Steelers (6-2-1
) dominated the pawns (6-3).
9: Panther’s opening bridge was an impressive nine-play, 75-yard touchdown run that started them with a 7-0 lead. That lead would last for seven seconds and would be the only time the Panthers led all night.
75: It took a single game for Steelers to answer Newton’s 20-yard touchdown pass to Christian McCaffrey as Ben Roethlisberger threw a 75-yard touchdown pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster at Pittsburgh’s first offensive game play.
13: Steelers scored 14 points in 13 seconds when the pants took the ground after Smith-Schuster’s score and suddenly Newton turned around close to a Vince Williams pick-six. Steelers linebacker drove the ball back 17 meters for the score.
Here is a picture of a man who thinks: “Oh no, I’ll make a terrible decision.” Or at least that is what we would have to assume. And no, this ball does not go to Greg Olsen as the picture makes it seem – it’s the pitch that resulted in Newton’s interception.
11: James Conner’s first quarter two-yard touchdown run marked his 11th point of the season, 10 of which have come to the ground. Le & # 39; veon bell has never had more than nine rushing touchdowns over an entire season and his season high is 11 scrimmage touchdowns. It is Conner who now has nine matches.
Conner still has a way to go to match Bell’s totals in terms of total yardage. Conner has 771 rushing yards and 387 receiving laps this season. Bell’s career raises in both rush and receiving laps came during the 2014 season with 1,361 rushing yards and 854 receiving laps.
It will be interesting to see how Conner’s season continues with Bell, which may come back next week. But it’s also possible that Bell fails to sign up for Tuesday, which is the time limit for signing his franchise tag. It will enable him to play this year and finish his teamout. Conner left to be evaluated for brain injury in the fourth quarter and did not return, but the game was out of hand at the time.
50: Steelers kicker Chris Boswell transformed the year’s longest field goal (50 meters) in the second quarter.
158.3: Roethlisberger had a perfect fit half-time score after 12 to 13 for 234 meters and two touchdowns in the first two quarters. Quite surprisingly, he held his impressive game in the second half and finished the game with the same pass grade. It was the first time since 2007 that he finished a game with 158.3 grades.
Big Ben finished 22 of 25 passes for 328 meters and five touchdowns in the three quarters (and one in fourth quarter) as he played. He joins Russell Wilson and Jared Goff as quarterbacks to finish a game with a perfect match rating this season.
11:01: Time left on the clock when Steelers sat in Josh Dobbs on the quarterback. With a 52-14 point, it was not necessary to keep Roethlisberger in the game, and the pants should have pulled Newton for their own safety as well. For some reason, they took out Ryan Kalil center but were pleased to keep Newton in.
This was the general Twitter feeling:
1: Ejections as Panther’s Security Eric Reid was disqualified during the third quarter “for unnecessary coarseness for forced contact to the head and disadvantage of a sliding quarterback” . Reid was controversially sent to the locker room after coming into contact with Roethlisberger on a game during which quarterback ran for an 18-yard win.
6:21: Remaining time of the clock when Steelers got his first and only penalty on the game. It came as Artie Burns was called for defensive pass interference. Two games later, McCaffrey made his third (and Panther’s third) touchdown of the game. McCaffrey is the third player in Panther’s history with three straight games with several touchdowns (Ted Ginn, 2015 and Lamar Smith, 2002), per ESPN Stats & Info .
9: McCaffrey now holds the record for the most career receiving touchdowns (nine) by running back in Panther’s history. He made a rushing and two receiving touchdowns in Panther’s loss and had 138 scrimmage yards in the game.
5: Steeler’s defense nicknamed five sacks on Newton with two coming from Cam Heyward. T.J. Watt had a bag too, and pressed Newton when he threw his only intercept of the game.
52: The most points that Steelers has ever made on Heinz Field and their overall score at the end of the 52-21 damnation.
