Steelers trail Lions 27-20, at halftime

Posted by Teresa Varley on November 17, 2013 – 2:48 pm

The Lions took over late in the first quarter, and moved the ball on the ground with a five and 18 yard run by Joique Bell. Matthew Stafford hit Calvin Johnson for a 16-yard completion to the Steelers 19-yard line, but that would be about all the Lions would get. David Akers 35-yard field goal hit off the uprights, but bounced inside, putting the Lions on the board, 14-3, with 14:05 to play in the second quarter.

The Steelers defense came through big on the Lions next drive, when Will Allen forced a Reggie Bush fumble, recovered by Lawrence Timmons who returned it 29 yards to the 32-yard line.

Ben Roethlisberger, working out of the shotgun, was under pressure but dumped the ball off to Heath Miller for a 10-yard gain. Roethlisberger then hit Markus Wheaton for an 11-yard gain to the 11-yard line. Le’Veon Bell went around right end for four yards before going out of bounds. The Steelers weren’t able to go any further, bringing on Shaun Suisham for a 25-yard field goal and a 17-3 lead.

The Lions came back for the quick strike with a 79-yard touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford to Calvin Johnson, to cut the Steelers lead to 17-10.

The Steelers fought right back, driving down to the 12-yard line. But Roethlisberger was sacked by Nick Fairley on third down, forcing them to call upon Suisham again, who hit a 34-yard field goal for a 20-10 lead.

The scoring continued, with Stafford hitting Brandon Pettigrew for 31 and 25 yards to the Steelers 19-yard line. Stafford then hit Johnson for a 19-yard touchdown to close the gap to 20-17.

The Lions took their first lead of the game, 24-20, with a two-yard touchdown run by Joique Bell late in the second quarter.

The Lions added a late field goal, with Akers giving the Lions a 27-20 halftime lead.
