JuJu Smith-Schuster burns Lions D on 97-yard TD

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Through the first 7 weeks of the season, he had collected 17 receptions for 231 yards and 3 touchdowns.

He didn't celebrate the touchdown in the end zone, but he appeared to pretend to lock up an exercise bike on the sidelines.

The Pittsburgh Steelers utilized a bend-but-don't-break approach on defense to earn a 20-15 road victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday night. The pressure forced Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford up into the pocket and right into the arms of Alualu.

The Steelers stood up the Lions after a long drive, holding them on a fourth-and-goal attempt from the 1-yard line, after Detroit's third-down attempt went wrong on a number of levels. On third-and-long, Ben Roethlisberger squeezed the ball between the corner and safety over the middle of the field, and Smith-Schuster did the rest.

Le'Veon Bell got a couple of carries that didn't amount to much.

It didn't help that the Pittsburgh Steelers responded with a 97-yard touchdown pass moments later, but don't let that distract you from looking at things objectively.

The Lions have lost three straight to slip to 3-and-4.
