In this week’s “Where Did That Come From” segment we highlight a pair of Pittsburgh Steelers.
Unfortunately for the Arizona Cardinals both QB Landry Jones and WR Martavis Bryant came out of nowhere to propel the Steelers to the upset win.
With QB Ben Roethlisberger already out and backup Mike Vick sideline late in Sunday’s contest, Jones came in and dominated the Cardinals secondary in his first regular-season action as a pro.
Jones completed 8-of-12 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns. Jones accumulated a near perfect QB Rating of 149.3 against an Arizona defense that had been receiving a lot of praise so far this year.
Meanwhile, Bryant, who missed the Steelers’ first five games of the 2015 campaign, broke out in a big way with six catches for 137 yards and two touchdowns.
Bryant’s 88-yard touchdown late in Sunday’s tilt salted the game a way for Pittsburgh as the Steelers are now 2-1 in games without Big Ben starting.
After a dominating start, Arizona has now lost two of its last three games and enters a difficult portion of the schedule. The Cardinals will need to limit breakout performances like they gave up in Pittsburgh in order to get back on track.
