Steelers defeat Bengals 30-20

Posted by Teresa Varley on December 15, 2013 – 11:32 pm

The Bengals culminated a third quarter drive with a one-yard touchdown pass from Andy Dalton to Tyler Eifert to close the gap to 30-14. The Bengals scoring drive was 13 plays, 63 yards, and took up 7:09.

Ben Roethlisberger set a Steelers record with an 11-yard completion to Antonio Brown on the next drive, giving him the most completions by a Steelers player in a season with 338, breaking his own record of 337 completions set in 2009. The drive ended when Roethlisberger was sacked and the Steelers were forced to punt.

The Bengals came right back, driving down the field and on fourth down Andy Dalton hit Marvin Jones for a 13-yard touchdown. The two-point conversion failed, with the Steelers holding on to a 30-20 lead.

The Steelers converted on a huge third down late in the fourth quarter on an eight-yard completion to Emmanuel Sanders to keep their drive alive and force the Bengals to use their final timeout. The Bengals stopped the Steelers on their next third down conversion, forcing a Mat McBride punt and giving the Bengals the ball back. The defense held and took over on downs.

Steelers lead 30-7 at end of third

Posted by Teresa Varley on December 15, 2013 – 10:50 pm

Turnovers were the story early on in the second half, when Troy Polamalu forced a fumble and Ziggy Hood recovered. The Bengals got the ball right back when Adam Jones intercepted Ben Roethlisberger at the Bengals two-yard line.

The Steelers defense held strong, shutting down the Bengals and putting the ball back in Roethlisberger’s hands. Roethlisberger hit Antonio Brown for 20 yards and added a 13-yard pass to Heath Miller. Le’Veon Bell took it for six yards, and a taunting call gave the Steelers a first down at the Bengals’ 11-yard line. The drive stopped a the three-yard line, and Shaun Suisham hit a 26-yard field goal attempt for a 30-7 lead with 6:18 to play in the third quarter.

Bell rattled off an eight-yard carry, and Roethlisberger hit Antonio Brown for 11 yards to the five-yard line. On third down Roethlisberger’s pass to Jerricho Cotchery in the end zone was broken-up, bringing on Shaun Suisham for a 25-yard field goal and 24-0 lead.

Jonathan Dwyer went up the middle for five yards, and added another 10 yards. The offense slowed after that, bringing Suisham back on for a 45-yard field goal attempt that sailed through the uprights to extend the lead to 27-7.

Steelers lead 21-0 after 1st quarter

Posted by Teresa Varley on December 15, 2013 – 9:14 pm

The Steelers won the toss and came out strong on the opening drive. Le’Veon Bell caught a short pass for five yards and a facemask penalty tacked on another 15 yards. Bell added a four-yard run and then working out of the no huddle Ben Roethlisberger hit Antonio Brown for 12 yards. Bell added a four and one yard run, but on third down was stopped short after just a two-yard gain, forcing a punt.

The Bengals started at their own seven-yard line, and a strong stand by the defense quickly shut them down. Andy Dalton completed a nine-yard pass to A.J. Green, but Troy Polamalu broke up Dalton’s pass and Ben-Jarvis Green-Ellis was held for no gain.

Bengals’ punter Kevin Huber mishandled the snap, and was tackled by Will Allen for a 15-yard loss at the one-yard line. The Steelers took advantage with a one-yard touchdown run by Bell for a 7-0 lead.

The defense, fueled by an eight-yard sack by Ziggy Hood, held the Bengals again, giving the offense another shot. Bell bulled his way for a nine-yard reception, and added one for the first down. Roethlisberger hit Heath Miller for a four-yard gain, but Bell was stopped for no gain on the next play. On third down James Harrison stopped Jerricho Cotchery for only a two-yard gain. The Steelers went for it on fourth down, and it paid off with a 16-yard completion to Bell. Bell added a two-yard run and on the next play Roethlisberger had all day and found Brown in the end zone for a 12-yard touchdown and 14-0 lead.

After another stop by the defense, the Steelers came up big again with a 67-yard punt return for a touchdown by Antonio Brown for a 21-0 lead. On the play Huber was hit, was down on the field for several minutes, but walked off the field.

Steelers 28, Dolphins 34

Posted by Teresa Varley on December 8, 2013 – 4:20 pm

The fourth quarter opened with the action continuing. Ben Roethlisberger hit Jerricho Cotchery for a 16-yard touchdown to put the Steelers back on top, 28-24. The drive was 11 plays, 78 yards, and took 4:56 off the clock.

The Steelers defense came up with a big stop on the Dolphins next possession, with Jason Worilds ending it with a sack.

The offense wasn’t able to capitalize, but the defense again came on strong. LaMarr Woodley brought pressure on Ryan Tannehill forcing him to throw the ball away. Daniel Thomas was held to a three-yard loss, tackled by Lawrence Timmons and Woodley. On third down Will Gay stopped Brian Hartline short of the first down, forcing the Dolphins to punt.

Roethlisberger came out firing, hitting Cotchery for 19 yards to the Dolphins 44-yard line. Two penalties backed the Steelers up to the Steelers 47-yard line, before Antonio Brown got five yards back on a screen pass. The Steelers had to punt, though, after Roethlisberger’s third down pass was broken up.

It would be another big play that would have an impact, but this time it was Daniel Thomas who had a 55 yard run before being tracked down by Will Gay. Charles Clay broke free from tacklers for a 12-yard touchdown reception to put the Dolphins up 31-28.

The Steelers got the ball back at their own 10-yard line, but after three incomplete passes and just 2:33 to play, went for it on fourth down. Roethlisberger scrambled, but came up short with just an eight yard gain.

The Dolphins took over on the Steelers nine-yard line following a personal foul penalty. Caleb Sturgis added a field goal, to put the Dolphins up 34-28.

Steelers trail Dolphins, 24-21, end of 3rd

Posted by Teresa Varley on December 8, 2013 – 3:16 pm

The Dolphins got the ball to start the second half and marched down the field on 9 plays, 80 yards in 4:10, culminating with a Daniel Thomas four-yard touchdown run to extend their lead to 17-7. Cornerback Ike Taylor suffered a rib injury during the series, but returned to the game.

Big plays played a big role on the next drive. Heath Miller gave the offense a needed shot in the arm with a 31-yard reception to the Dolphins 43-yard line. Antonio Brown then lit it up with a 43-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown, closing the gap to 17-14.

Another big play paid dividends, but this time it was on defense. Troy Polamalu intercepted Ryan Tannehill and returned it 19-yards for a touchdown to give the Steelers a 21-17 lead.

The Dolphins came right back though, driving down the field for a four-yard touchdown reception by Brian Hartline for the 24-21 lead.

Posted by Teresa Varley on December 8, 2013 – 2:21 pm

 

Emmanuel Sanders gave the Steelers good field position with a 26-yard kickoff return to the 35-yard line. Le’Veon Bell wen up the middle for four yards, but Chris Clemons broke up a pass to Heath Miller that would have been a first down. The Steelers were forced to punt after Antonio Brown couldn’t pull in a first down grab.

The Dolphins looked like they were going to move the ball on their ensuing drive, with Daniel Thomas going off right guard for three yards and Ryan Tannehill hitting Dion Sims for a seven-yard gain. On the next play Tannehill couldn’t hold on to the ball and was sacked by Jason Worilds for a seven-yard loss. After two incompletions the Dolphins were forced to punt.

It would be the Dolphins defense that would come up big when Cameron Wake sacked Ben Roethlisberger, forcing a fumble that Randy Starks recovered. The Dolphins took advantage, with Tannehill capping their drive with a six-yard touchdown pass to Charles Clay for the 10-7 lead.

Halftime: Steelers 7, Dolphins 10

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

Manganiello to lead Terrible Towel Twirl

Posted by Teresa Varley on December 8, 2013 – 12:50 pm

Joe_HF
Joe Manganiello, who stars on HBOs True Blood, is leading the Terrible Towel Twirl prior to the game.

“I am super excited,” said Manganiello, who is from Pittsburgh. “Hopefully I can bring the team some luck. Hopefully a snow storm comes in and the towel twirl can help bring on the storm.”

Manganiello is also the author of the recently released book “Evolution,” a book about breaking down mental walls and building the body you always wanted. Manganiello did a book signing in Pittsburgh on Saturday, during which Franco Harris stopped by to wish him luck.

“There is so much junk out there in the fitness world that I just wanted to set the record straight,” said Manganiello. “There is so much misinformation out there you don’t know where to turn. I saw it as a great opportunity to set the record straight.”
