Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster showed why he’s a player that can be held quiet for a spell, but cannot be forgotten about, as he can come back and change a game with a highlight-reel play in a matter of seconds.
Smith-Schuster scored the longest touchdown of the season last year, as a rookie. That 97-yarder was the longest play (yardage-wise) since that time, and on Sunday, another touchdown equaled that same distance.
And this one was scored by JuJu as well.
The Steelers were backed up to their own three-yard line, and Ben Roethlisberger floated a ball off his back foot. Smith-Schuster ran under it and he took off flying down field, off to the races. He received a great block from Antonio Brown, and the end result was a 97-yard touchdown.
Smith-Schuster is the first NFL player to record multiple 97+ yard touchdowns in his career, and he’s only in year two.
