The Steelers attacked heavily with passing

The Black & Gold attacked the Broncos secondary today making them take on deep and short passes from Ben Roethlisberger.

The Black & Gold were not only aggressive in their game plan on the defensive side of the ball, but they were also aggressive on the offensive side of the ball.

Ben Roethlisberger threw the ball in a lot of ways against the Broncos secondary. He completed the ball a few times to James Washington who was covered by Michael Ojemudia. He also completed long passes for touchdowns to Diontae Johnson and James Washington.

The Broncos did not have AJ Bouye today who was supposed to be the replacement for Chris Harris. Instead, the Broncos had to roll out third-round rookie cornerback Michael Ojemudia against Ben Roethlisberger.

I actually give the Broncos secondary credit as they held the Steelers in check despite having a lot of injuries. Justin Simmons also had a nice interception where the secondary stayed with their men long enough to force Roethlisberger to throw the ball.
