The Pittsburgh Steelers are pouring it on early against the Carolina Panthers on defense and special teams in a big, BIG way. After blocking a field goal that would have opened the scoring, edge rusher Jayrone Elliott stunned the hosts with a strip sack deep in the red zone– only to pick up the ball himself and race almost 90 yards down the far sideline for a Steeler touchdown.

Yikes. Get up and down, big man!
This is exactly what you want to see if you’re a Pittsburgh fan. Tough, relentless defense built on suffocating pressure. Ball-hawking. Athleticism that can maximize every opportunity.
The strip might've been crazier than the 91-yard return 🔥 pic.twitter.com/Ba6ZIQ5TVA
