Kenny Pickett showed off a near-perfect impression of Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh’s final offensive drive of the night against the Baltimore Ravens, which happened to be the game-winner.

It was Baltimore’s game to lose as the Steelers offense was dormant for three quarters until urgency set in the final minutes, allowing Pickett, running back Najee Harris and the rest of the unit to pull off back-to-back 80-play scoring drives to steal the win from the Ravens, 16-13.

Strong pocket mobility, running and confidence in a final scoring drive fueled the Steelers under their rookie QB to defeat the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium. Pickett went 15-of-27 for 168 yards and a touchdown. If Steelers were waiting on a game to witness a QB1 swagger to the Pitt product, it was with minutes left on a Week 17 Sunday night primetime stage.

It was a flash of potential outing by Pickett, who’s got the nerves of steel to play in this town for an entire career.

Najee tallied 22 carries for 111 yards and a touchdown. It was the second-year standout’s first 100-yard rushing game of the year, feeling long overdue by the time Week 17 kicked off.
