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

CLEVELAND — Mitch Trubisky said Tuesday he knows he needs to involve rookie receiver George Pickens more in the Pittsburgh Steelers offense.

That’s exactly what he did late in the first quarter when he let Pickens slip away along the sideline in front of the Cleveland Browns bench.

Pickens, who had just two catches for 26 yards heading into Thursday’s game, made the 36-yard reception with a one-handed catch, securing the ball to his body as it hit the ground. Regardless of being closely watched by Martin Emerson Jr., Pickens still pulled off the contested hold. The 36-yard completion was the Steelers’ longest passing game this season.

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