George Pickens’ one-handed catch sets up the Steelers’ first touchdown against the Browns

CLEVELAND — Mitch Trubisky said Tuesday that he knew he had to get rookie wide receiver George Pickens more involved in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense.

He did exactly that late in the first quarter when he let Pickens run down the sideline in front of the Cleveland Browns bench.

Pickens, who had just two catches for 26 yards before Thursday’s game, caught the 36-yard reception with one hand, locking the ball against his body as it hit the ground. It didn’t matter that Martin Emerson Jr. guarded him closely, Pickens still made the contested catch. The 36-yard completion was the Steelers’ longest passing play this season.

The catch put the Steelers’ offense in position to score on a 5-yard touchdown run by Najee Harris a few plays later, tying the game 7-7 and showing the kind of aggression and explosiveness the unit lacked. in the first two weeks.
