The Perfect Storm: How a 3rd and 9 draw becomes a 74 yard touchdown

I don’t think anyone has forgotten the play.

The Pittsburgh Steelers defense had denied the Philadelphia Eagles even a single first down on their first two drives, and after the second the Steelers drove 62 yards in 16 plays, capping the drive with a 2 yard Chase Claypool jet sweep touchdown.

The Steelers defense went right back to work, a one yard run and an incomplete pass later the Eagles were facing a 3rd down and 9 at their own 26 yard line, one play away from punting a third straight time to a Steelers offense that was moving the ball effectively.
