Steelers defeat Lions, 37-27

Posted by Teresa Varley on November 17, 2013 – 4:24 pm

The Lions drove down to the 10-yard line early in the fourth quarter and on fourth down faked a field goal with holder Sam Martin taking the snap, taking it three yards before he was hit by Steve McLendon, who forced a fumble. Ryan Clark recovered and the Steelers took over at the three-yard line.

Working from deep in their own territory, Ben Roethlisberger got them some breathing room when he hit Antonio Brown for a 16-yard reception. Heath Miller pulled in a nine-yard reception to 29-yard line and Le’Veon Bell got the first down on a six-yard carry. Roethlisberger went back to Miller over the middle for a 21-yard gain. Bell was stopped for a two-yard loss, and on second down Rashean Mathis broke-up Roethlisberger’s pass. Roethlisberger scrambled down the right sideline on third down for 10 yards, coming up two yards short of the first down at the Lions 36-yard line. Roethlisberger hit Bell for a three-yard gain and the first down, keeping the drive alive. Roethlisberger hit Jonathan Dwyer for a 13-yard gain and then went to Jerricho Cotchery for a 19-yard gain to the one-yard line. A pass interference call gave the Steelers a new set of downs. Dwyer was stopped for no gain. On second down Roethlisberger hit Will Johnson for the one-yard touchdown and 30-27 lead.

The defense came up huge, with Will Allen intercepting Matt Stafford’s pass and returning it 27-yards to the Lions 34-yard line.

The Steelers offense took advantage with Roethlisberger hitting Cotchery for a 20-yard touchdown to extend the lead to 37-27.

The defense was able to hold off the Lions late to secure the win.

    yesterdays game was a very emotional game for me. my husband passed away sept.25th 2013. last year he was at the game on nov 8th it poured rain then too. he came home and got very sick,he never recovered and suffered off and on for a year,in and out of the hospital.yet he always told everyone he would do it all over again. Well 4 friends of his came yesterday all the way from Winchester va and took his ashes to the game in honor of his his birthday that was on 11-14. it was exactly the type of game that he would have loved,exciting and very nail biting.one of his friends had joked that it was big ben that killed him,i had to laugh because I said it seemed yesterday big ben tried to resurrect him.i am not sure if Ricks spirit helped the steelers win or if they just played an awesome game for ricks last trip to Heinz field. I would like to think that rick had a hand in winning yesterday as he was an avid fan and gave his life for the steelers. ty to the coachers,players,and staff but mostly to kevin,dave and two other fine men that took rick to the ball game yesterday!!!!!
