Steelers Crush Colts; Antonio Brown Hops On Goal Post For TD Celebration
Everything went right for the Pittsburgh Steelers during last night’s Sunday primetime game against the Indianapolis Colts. This even included a late touchdown celebration that has never been seen before that had the home Pittsburgh crowd cheering for their team.
The Steelers gave the Colts no chance of ever coming within scoring position especially with no points allowed in the second half as the Steelers would go on to win 45-10. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 364 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions in another stunning performance from the veteran quarterback. Star wide receiver Antonio Brown caught eight receptions for 118 yards and two touchdowns including a monstrous 71-yard punt return in the fourth quarter. “I just feel a chemistry growing between us on offense,” Roethlisberger said of Brown. “Things just seem to be working.” Wide receiver Martavis Bryant had four receptions for 114 yards and one touchdown with running back DeAngelo Williams rushing for 134 yards.
The highlight of the night came from Brown during the last minutes of the game when he returned the punt return for the a touchdown. When he entered the end zone, Brown flew right into the goalpost with legs stretched out before falling and celebrating with his teammates.
