Steelers Score Opening Drive Touchdowns in Consecutive Weeks for First Time Since 2017

Published

With a 50-yard strike from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to wide receiver Diontae Johnson in the first quarter of their game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers scored opening drive touchdowns in consecutive weeks for the first time in five seasons.

Pittsburgh last scored opening drive touchdowns in consecutive games against the Tennessee Titans and Green Bay Packers back in 2017. The Steelers were victorious in both games.

Roethlisberger and Johnson also connected on a 45-yard touchdown to begin last week’s game against the Packers.

Prior to the Week 4 loss at Green Bay, Pittsburgh had gone ten-straight games without a first quarter offensive score, let alone a touchdown.
