By the Numbers: An offensive explosion

A deep dive into the numbers from the Week 13 game against the Indianapolis Colts


Antonio Brown gave us a LOT to talk about, recording 118 yards on 8 receptions. Two of those catches resulted in touchdowns, but Brown's highlight of the day came on a 71-yard punt return for yet another touchdown. He finished the day with three total touchdowns.


Finishing just 4 yards behind Antonio Brown was Martavis Bryant, who logged 114 yards on just 4 receptions for a whopping 28.5 yards per catch. Bryant was responsible for a touchdown of his own, a 68-yard cannonball from Ben Roethlisberger that hit Bryant in stride.


Let's not forget the ground attack, led by DeAngelo Williams' 134 yards on 26 carries for a not-too-shabby 5.2 yards per carry. His long run of the day was 21 yards. Even Big Ben got in the mix for a 13-yard scramble for 13 yards. Williams registered over 100 scrimmage yards for the fifth time in 2015.


When the final whistle sounded, Ben Roethlisberger had 24 completions on 39 attempts for 364 passing yards, four touchdowns, and a quarterback rating on 126.4. The Steelers are 60-7 when Big Ben finishes with a QB rating of 100.0 or better as a starter. As Coach Tomlin put it, "Ben was Ben."


The number of sacks, and interceptions on Big Ben's stat sheet for Week 13.


The Steelers' offense was able to march down the field with great success, thanks to 62% 3rd down efficiency (8-for-13) and a 75% (3-for-4) success rate in the red zone.


That's how many total yards of offense the Steelers tallied against the Colts.


The Steelers offense possessed the ball for 32:50, five minutes and 40 seconds longer than the Colts' total time of possession.


The Steelers' three longest offensive plays were completions from Ben Roethlisberger to three different receivers. Those passes went to Martavis Bryant for a 68-yard touchdown, Antonio Brown for 48 yards, and Markus Wheaton for 27 yards.


The Steelers have used the two-point conversion option quite a bit this season, and they've logged a 70% success rate, converting seven of their 10 attempts this season.
