For the third straight week, the Pittsburgh Steelers closed out a victory on their own terms. A late drive, grinding out the final minutes of the clock. A four minute offense the past two weeks, including yesterday’s win over Houston. Sunday, it wasn’t just the run that got the win signed, sealed, and delivered. It was two well-designed, read, and executed RPOs (run-pass options) to beat the Texans. Let’s take a look at both of them.
Facing 4th and 1 from the Texans’ 36, the Steelers called a RPO. Give Ben Roethlisberger options on the biggest snap of the game.
