Breaking down the lone sack allowed by the Pittsburgh Steelers in their Week 5 win over the Denver Broncos.
1. 4:10 1st. 11 personnel. 6 block vs five rush.
Lone sack of the day but it was a costly one, ending a decent-looking drive and leading to the Broncos coming away with the football. Rush and coverage go together and to be fair to Ben Roethlisberger and the offensive line, there’s nothing open downfield here.
So Roethlisberger tried to keep the play alive, rolling to his right before getting hit from behind by Malik Reed, knocking the ball out.
