Watch: Artie Burns interception ends Texans hopes

Steel City Underground will pick a play of the game from each side of the ball each week of the Steelers 2017 season. Stay tuned as we hand select the very best from the black and gold!

There was a lot of talk about Artie Burns being replaced by rookie Cameron Sutton in Saturday’s practice. Sutton ran with the “ones” meaning he was working in with the starters. The presumed outcome that most thought might happen is that Burns was going to get demoted.

On Monday, Burns showed us why he’s the starter. With the Texans closing within a yard of scoring, the Steelers corner made a clutch catch much like his teammates Antonio Brown or Martavis Bryant would, tip-toeing along the end line and securing an interception on Houston’s fourth attempt to lessen the gap of a 10-0 Steelers lead.

With another pass deflection later in the game, Burns showed why he belongs with the “ones”.
