The Pittsburgh Steelers were able to earn a big win yesterday at Acrisure Stadium over the visiting Green Bay Packers, improving their record to 6-3 after a slow start to the season. 

However, there was one moment during the game that caught the attention of Steelers fans everywhere, as injured safety Minkah Fitzpatrick was seen on the sidelines barking at defensive coordinator Teryl Austin over a play call.

As Fitzpatrick would later say, he was the one calling an audible and convinced Austin to change the defensive play with seconds remaining in regulation.

“Yeah, I had an idea,” Fitzpatrick said after the game of what transpired. “So me and (defensive backs coach) Grady (Brown) talked (Austin) into changing it.”

Fitzpatrick, who missed the game with a hamstring injury, clearly isn't shy about voicing his opinion. Despite the injury, he continues to lead all Steelers players in tackles.
