Two youngsters step up for Steelers
PITTSBURGH — For Martavis Bryant, Sunday meant relief. For Landry Jones, it was validation. For the Steelers, it was a win as unlikely as it was emphatic.
Pittsburgh rallied past Arizona, led by two players who have experience being buried in the doghouse or depth chart or both.
Jones threw two touchdowns to Bryant after relieving Michael Vick, the second a spectacular 88-yard catch-and-run with 1:58 left. Bryant played for the first time this season after missing four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy and one with a knee injury.
"I just can't believe I got in the game," Jones said. "I'm still kind of reeling from it."
Vick, substituting for injured starter Ben Roethlisberger, completed just 3 of 8 passes for 6 yards before exiting in the third quarter with a right hamstring injury. "Landry was like Ben's little brother out there," Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell said.
