Steelers Vs. Panthers Gets Off To Crazy Start With Three First Quarter Touchdowns In 24 Seconds

The game between the Panthers and Steelers got off to a wild start on Thursday night when the two teams combined to score three touchdowns over a 24-second span in the first quarter. 

If you're wondering how that happened, let me explain. 

The Panthers got the ball first and drove straight down the field for a touchdown. On the drive, the Steelers had no answer for Christian McCaffrey, who accounted for 60 of Carolina's 75 yards. A big chunk of that came with just under 11 minutes to play in the first quarter when McCaffrey took a short pass from Cam Newton and went 20 yards for a touchdown.

That score came with 10:29 remaining in the first quarter, and that's when the real craziness began. 

On the ensuing kickoff, the Steelers took a knee in the end zone for a touchback, and after that, it didn't take them long to respond to Carolina's scoring drive. On their first offensive play from scrimmage, Ben Roethlisberger dropped back and hit a wide open JuJu Smith-Schuster with a long bomb that went for a 75-yard touchdown.

The Steelers' scoring drive took just 11 seconds, which means the clock only went down to 10:18, and we still have one more touchdown to tell you about.
