This was from the third quarter, and the Steelers were facing a tough third and eighteen conversion. Ben is in the gun, with a back next to him on the left, and trips right. Heath Miller is lined up closest to the line on the right side, matched up against a linebacker.
Ben takes the snap, and Miller makes his move to the outside on the linebacker. Ben is definitely looking his way, let’s see what happened next.
Heath Miller makes it a double move, breaking towards the post, leaving the linebacker in the dust. Ben unloads….
Miller finds a spot behind the linebacker, and in front of the safeties. Ben hits him, and 23 yards later, Pittsburgh has a long third down conversion.
This is where the defense will be tested on Sunday. Miller creates matchup difficulties for linebackers around the league. Laron and crew will have to be ready to step up, and Bart Scott and friends need to be on top of their game. This guy could eat away at the Jets defense if they aren’t.
