WATCH: Big Ben hits Sammie Coates for a 72-yard touchdown

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger

Big plays against the New York Jets’ defense isn’t anything new. They entered this week yielding an average of 17.7 yards per catch to receivers.

That reared its ugly head again Sunday afternoon against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Yes, that’s Ben Roethlisberger hitting young receiver Sammie Coates for a 72-yard touchdown to put the Pittsburgh Steelers up 7-3 in the first quarter.

Coates, a second-year receiver from Auburn, entered the week averaging 21.7 yards per reception. His ability to beat Marcus Williams here surely adds another level to that
