Steelers lead Dolphins 7-3, end of 1st Q

Posted by Teresa Varley on December 8, 2013 – 1:34 pm

 

The Steelers went three-and-out on the opening drive of the game, but their defense returned the favor, shutting down the Dolphins on their opening drive. Troy Polamalu broke up a Ryan Tannehill pass that he came close to intercepting, and then Cam Heyward sacked Tannehill for an eight-yard loss.

The Steelers got the ball at their own 26-yard line, and in the snow kept things on the ground to get rolling. Le’Veon Bell rattled off runs of four, nine, six and three yards. On third-and-one Jonathan Dwyer pounded it up the middle for six yards to keep the chains moving. Ben Roethlisberger hit Heath Miller for 22 yards to the 24-yard line, and Bell added a six-yard gain. Bell was knocked for a two-yard loss, but got the first down on a nine-yard reception. Bell was stopped for no gain, but added a five-yard carry to the six-yard carry. On third down Roethlisberger hit Emmanuel Sanders for a five-yard touchdown, giving the Steelers an early 7-0 lead, off a 12-play, 74-yard drive that ate up 7:05. On the play, Roethlisberger passed Terry Bradshaw with most touchdown passes in franchise history with 213.

Cortez Allen broke up a Tannehill pass intended deep for Mike Wallace. Lamar Miller added a seven-yard carry, and then Tannehill scrambled for eight yards, and then took off running for 48 yards to the Steelers 13-yard line. The defense held them, forcing the Dolphins to settle for a 30-yard Ryan Sturgis field goal.

End of first quarter: Steelers 7, Dolphins 3
