Watch: Pat Freiermuth Bulldozes His Way to 57-Yard Gain



Pat Freiermuth

Pat Freiermuth is making his presence felt against the Atlanta Falcons. Thus far, Freiermuth has 3 catches for 76 yards, but his biggest play was a 57-yard rip that allowed the Steelers to get into the redzone.

After catching the ball on another third down to convert, Freiermuth broke two tackles. He would run up the sideline and Gunner Olszewski would be the lead blocker that allowed Freiermuth to continue gaining yardage. He would not be tackled until he was inside the 15.

It was the best gain for a Steelers since Vance McDonald stiff-armed Chris Conte against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. All three catches by Freiermuth were converted for first downs. The tight ends have gotten involved, as Connor Heyward caught his first career touchdown as well.
