A Steelers WR Has (Finally) Caught a Touchdown



Steelers WR Chase Claypool

PITTSBURGH — The drought of nearly six games is now over. A Steelers wide receiver has caught a touchdown pass. Chase Claypool caught a six-yard pass from Mitch Trubisky in the red zone for the first wide receiver touchdown of the season for Pittsburgh.

The streak was the longest in the NFL to start the season. It has been a struggle for the Steelers to get touchdowns period, but the wide receivers in particular have not been nearly productive enough in the endzone. After Kenny Pickett went down with the injury, it was a key drive engineered by Trubisky.

The Steelers lead the Buccaneers 20-18 with about four minutes left in the game. They will need one more drive-in to truly close the door on the game against the Buccaneers. But they are close to getting their second win of the season against a team where they were double-digit underdogs coming into the game.
