The Steelers opened the second quarter with Jonathan Dwyer going off right guard for a six-yard gain and first down. Felix Jones went off left guard for nine yards, and then Dwyer took it up the middle for two yards. Emmanuel Sanders got the handoff from Le’Veon Bell and tiptoed along the sideline for a 25-yard gain to the Bills 25-yard line. Bell added gains of nine, six and three yards to the seven-yard line. On third down Ben Roethlisberger was sacked for an 11-yard loss, brining on Shaun Suisham for a 36-yard field goal to tie the game at 3-3.
After the defense stopped the Bills, Roethlisberger and company went to work. Roethlisberger got away from pressure to complete a shovel pass to Bell for 34 yards to midfield. Roethlisberger completed a four-yard pass to Sanders and Dwyer added carries of eight and six yards. Roethlisberger hit a wide open Antonio Brown for 24 yards to the five-yard line. Roethlisberger then hit Jerricho Cotchery in the corner of the end zone for a five-yard touchdown to give the Steelers a 10-3 lead, completing an 86-yard drive.
