Below are a few animated gifs of a few key plays from the Pittsburgh Steelers 21-18 Week 8 loss to the Oakland Raiders.
On the first play from scrimmage, Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor goes 93 yards on a read-option. Linebacker LaMarr Woodley doesn’t protect the backside and safety Ryan Clark leaves the center of the field as he too goes for the fake. Safety Troy Polamalu, who is lined up on the slot receiver, is easy blocked and Pryor is gone.
The punt block gets charged to punter Zoltan Mesko and tight end David Paulson. While you can’t see it in this gif, Mesko catches the snap in the gut.
On the Polamalu interception, linebacker Jarvis Jones gets a free run at Pryor thanks to the left tackle not knowing what the snap count is. Pryor should have never thrown this ball.
Raiders cornerback Tracy Porter intercepts a pass intended for Antonio Brown that the receiver should have had. Did it hit the ground?
While not a play, Raiders defensive coordinator Jason Tarver was caught by the cameras flipping the bird to officials after cornerback Mike Jenkins was flagged for hitting a defenseless receiver. The flag was eventually picked up. You can bet Tarver fill be fined.
