The Steelers kicked off OTAs last week with an unscripted two-point play drill. The NFL recently changed the PAT rules to push the extra point kick back to the 15-yard line but keeping a two-point conversion at the two. The Steelers wasted no time in putting their plans for the new rule change into motion by starting off drills in the red zone.

Ben Roethlisberger told Mike Prisuta that he was expecting it but was still surprised to see it so early in the preparations.

"“Coach came to me and told me we were going to do it so I kinda was a little prepared for it. But it was surprising in the sense that we hadn’t put the red zone offense in yet, the defense hadn’t put the red zone defense in yet. But that’s going to be a big part of the game now, teams consciously going for two or at least debating it.” – Ben Roethlisberger"

Wonder how they’re going to start this week’s OTAs off?

Here we go Steelers! Here we go!
