The Pittsburgh Steelers used 2o years of conventional NFL wisdom to set fire against the San Fransisco 49ers. The Steelers emerged convincing winners of the Sunday’s contest winning by 43-18 margin.
Pittsburgh came back sharply ten days after suffering a 28-21 defeat against the New England Patriots.
Ben Roethlisberger ran 369 passing yard with 3 touchdowns. D’Angelo Williams tied a team record with three rushing scores to engineer a thumping win.
The Steelers dominated the game from the beginning by capitalizing on a 2-point attempt.
“We’re going to take our shots,” Antony Brown said. “It’s another opportunity to put points on the board.”
After catching 9 passes for 195 yards for the winners, Brown emerged as a hero for the Steelers who needed all of 23 minutes to pile up 453 yards without All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell and wide receiver Martavis Bryant. Both stars had to sit out due to violation of the league’s substance use policy. Bell is scheduled to return next week when the Pittsburgh visits Saint Luis.
“When we get all our pieces back to this puzzle, it’s going to be a beautiful puzzle man,” Williams said.
Niners’ runningback Carlos Hyde, who produces a stunning show in the opener, dished out a poor performance on Sunday’s game.
