A look at a couple of big plays Dan Leberfeld
Pittsburgh – Jason Taylor had a huge sack in the fourth quarter.
On the play, he took it upon himself to move from the outside linebacker spot, inside to a defensive tackle (three-technique) position, and this decision paid huge dividends. Guard Chris Kemoeatu pulled to the right, leaving a big hole for Taylor to run into the end zone and tackle RB Mewelde Moore.
“I took an educated guess and it worked out,” said Taylor, a Pittsburgh-native.
Another important play for the Jets was the seven-yard bootleg touchdown by Mark Sanchez in the third quarter, on fourth-and-one.
This play-call by Brian Schottenheimer caught the Steelers totally by surprise.
“We thought they would sell the farm (to stop the run), and they did,” Rex Ryan said.
