JuJu Smith-Schuster leads the Steelers to victory with two touchdown receptions.
The first takeaway of the season was provided by outside linebacker T.J. Watt early in the second quarter, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger began throwing touchdown passes soon thereafter, and the Steelers rallied from a couple of early deficits and eventually put the Giants away, 26-16, on Monday night at MetLife Stadium.
“I thought they showed their mettle,” head coach Mike Tomlin assessed. “I thought they were physically tough, mentally tough, but we gotta do some things better.
“I appreciate the effort, we just gotta search for a higher ceiling.”
Man, I can’t believe I get to start at Guard for my hometown team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, tonight on Monday Night Football against the Giants. I feel so blessed and so ready to go!!! #HereWeGo
