Video: Steelers’ Minkah Fitzpatrick picks off Brian Hoyer for 96-yard TD return
The Pittsburgh Steelers’ decision to surrender a first-round pick to acquire Minkah Fitzpatrick has certainly paid dividends. While the Indianapolis Colts were driving down the field, Fitzpatrick picked off Brian Hoyer for a 96-yard touchdown return.
MINKAH FITZPATRICK: 96-YARD PICK 6!

The versatile safety was able to jump the route and intercept Hoyer’s pass intended for Jack Doyle. After catching the ball, Fitzpatrick immediately had his sights set on taking the interception for six points to tie the game.
With the interception, Fitzpatrick now has three interceptions in the past six days and has four of them since joining the Steelers in Week 3. Altogether, the former Miami Dolphins defensive back has forced six turnovers for Pittsburgh.
The Steelers may not have a first-round pick in 2020 to possibly draft a quarterback, but at least they found a gem in Fitzpatrick.
