Through the first two games of the season, Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver George Pickens had mainly been a decoy in the passing game. But it didn’t take long on Thursday night for quarterback Mitch Trubisky to get Pickens the football and Pickens made it count.
Check out the video below from the team’s Twitter account of Pickens hauling in a 36-yard one-handed catch with excellent coverage on him.
If the Steelers offense is going to be successful, Trubisky and Pickens need to keep making connections like this. The Steelers and Browns are tied at 7-7 early in the second quarter.
