Steel City Underground will pick a play of the game from each side of the ball each week of the Steelers 2019 season. Stay tuned as we hand select the very best from the black and gold!
Steelers Nation couldn’t wait to get their first look at the man the organization moved up in the draft to get: Devin Bush.
On Friday night, they’d get more than what they bargained for as Bush lit up the screen in his debut in black and gold, on a primetime game televised nationally on NFL Network.
Racking up tackles early in the game, it was Bush who dropped into pass coverage on third down and rode his opponent, who made the catch, out of bounds just shy of the down marker, forcing Tampa Bay into a 4th-and-1 situation.
It was anyone’s guess if the Buccaneers would actually run a play, but when they snapped the ball it was all over before it started.
Bush slices through the center of the defense and grabs the ball carrier, Andre Ellington, behind the line of scrimmage. Ola Adeniyi, who seals the edge, puts the icing on the cake as the Steelers defense gets off of the field to the delight of those in attendance.
The Steelers would go on to win the preseason match up 30-28.
