It’s hard to have a much better day than Chase Claypool had on Sunday.
The Steelers’ rookie wide receiver dominated the Eagles’ defense, racking up four touchdowns — three receiving, one rushing — to lead Pittsburgh to a 38-29 win and a 4-0 record for the first time since 1979. After the game, the British Columbia native went viral after posting a hilarious meme of himself photoshopped over an image of Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady holding up four fingers after forgetting what down it was in Tampa Bay’s loss Thursday night.
Claypool was rarely involved in the Steelers’ offense during the first three weeks of the season. The second-round draft pick out of Notre Dame scored his first career touchdown in Week 2 against the Broncos and had just six catches on nine targets for 151 yards. But he helped carry the Pittsburgh offense on Sunday, finishing with seven catches for 110 yards to go with his first career rushing TD.
With performances like that, it’s only a matter of time before he becomes one of Ben Roethlisberger’s favorite targets.
