Steelers trail Patriots 27-24 at end of 3rd Q

Posted by Teresa Varley on November 3, 2013 – 6:55 pm

The Patriots got the ball to start the second half, but the defense came up big. Troy Polamalu stripped the ball from Stevan Ridley and LaMarr Woodley recovered at the New England 36-yard line.

Ben Roethlisberger stayed in the no-huddle, getting rolling with a short pass to Le’Veon Bell that he took for nine yards. On second down Bell went off right guard for an eight yard gain to the Patriots’ 19-yard line. Roethlisberger was sacked for a one-yard loss, and threw incomplete to Bell. On third-and-11 Roethlisberger hit Jerricho Cotchery in the end zone for a 20-yard touchdown, pulling the Steelers within seven at 24-17.

The defense came up with a big stop on the Patriots next drive, forcing a punt which Antonio Brown returned 24 yards to the New England 46-yard line.

Bell went around right end for a 25-yard gain and Miller pulled in a 15-yard reception. Brown grabbed an eight-yard reception to the eight yard line. On third down Roethlisberger went back to Cotchery for an eight-yard touchdown, tying the game at 24-24.

The Patriots took a 27-24 lead on their next possession with a 32-yard Stephen Gostkowski field goal.

    So blame the defense for giving up so many points…55…most in team history. The defense can’t help interceptions thrown almost intentionally to the other team! Come on… Ben has had his better days. I personally thought he was the best…before he crashed his motorcycle…too many injuries. Ben has had his day, but the offense is weak…and the D is looking a little slower and less aggressive. Hard to watch a team you love struggle.

    anyone else notice the Green Bay defense is playing like the old Steeler defense? I did some research and look what i’ve found:
    Dom Capers – Defensive Coordinator
    Kevin Greene – Outside Linebackers
    Darren Perry – Secondary – Safeties
    old Steeler names. what? Pitt needs some changes. Get to work…
