Steelers and Packers tied after first

Posted by Teresa Varley on December 22, 2013 – 4:56 pm

The Packers won the toss and elected to receive, but a fired up Steelers’ defense forced a three and out after Lawrence Timmons sacked Matt Flynn for an eight yard loss on third-and-two.

Le’Veon Bell got things going for the Steelers with an 11-yard run and Heath Miller added a six-yard reception. But penalties backed the Steelers up, forcing a Mat McBriar punt.

Flynn went to work from the Packers 13-yards line, driving them down the field where he connected with James Boykin for a five-yard touchdown pass to cap a 13 play, 87 yard drive in 5:19 for a 7-0 lead.

Bell got the call again to open the drive, rushing for two yards and then breaking free for a 22-yard gain. Ben Roethlisberger went to the air, hitting Antonio Brown for a 36-yard gain to the Packers 13-yard line. Bell added a two-yard carry and fought for seven more. On third and one he converted with a three-yard carry. Roethlisberger found a wide open Emmanuel Sanders in the end zone for the three-yard touchdown to tie it at 7-7 at the end of the first quarter.

First Quarter – Steelers 7, Packers 7

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.

Steelers lead Bengals 27-7 at halftime

Posted by Teresa Varley on December 15, 2013 – 10:00 pm

The offense stayed hot in the second quarter, with Roethlisberger hitting Emmanuel Sanders for 21 and 12 yards and then added a nine-yard pass to Heath Miller. 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.

Brandon Tate gave the Bengals life with a 52-yard kickoff return to the Steelers 47-yard line. Andy Dalton hit A.J. Green for 19 yards and Giovani Bernard added a seven-yard run. Dalton added a nine-yard completion to Green to the 12-yard line. Bernard capped the drive with a one-yard touchdown run, to cut the lead to 24-7 with 5:14 to play in the half.

The Steelers offense went right back to work with Felix Jones going off left guard for 12 yards and Roethlisberger hitting Miller for nine yards. 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 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.

Steelers trail Dolphins, 10-7, at halftime

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

Steelers lose to Ravens, 22-20

Posted by Teresa Varley on November 28, 2013 – 11:38 pm

The Ravens got the ball back late in the third quarter and Joe Flacco and Jacoby Jones connected again, this time for 34 yards before the quarter came to a close. The defense kept the Ravens out of the end zone again, bringing on Justin Tucker for a 45-yard field goal, extending the lead to 19-7.

Ben Roethlisberger, working out of the no-huddle, found Le’Veon Bell for seven yards, Emmanuel Sanders for five and back to Bell for nine yards. After two incomplete passes, Roethlisberger converted a key third-and-10, finding Antonio Brown at the eight-yard line for a 19-yard gain. Roethlisberger hit Heath Miller for seven yards, and then Bell got the one-yard touchdown, cutting the lead to 19-14.

The Ravens added another Justin Tucker field goal, his fifth of the night, to extend the lead to 22-7 with 5:43 to play in the game.

The Steelers came back with Roethlisberger completing passes to Antonio Brown for 19 yards and Heath Miller for seven, five and 13 yards. A facemask call gave the Steelers a second-and-24, and Roethlisberger hit Bell for 29 yards to the 20-yard line. Roethlisberger hit Miller for a 19-yard gain to the one-yard line. Bell was stopped on first down for no gain. On second-and-goal Bell looked like he had scored, but took a hit to the head, losing his helmet and having to be helped off the field. Because he lost his helmet, the play was ruled dead when the helmet came off at the one yard line.

On third down Roethlisberger’s pass to Will Johnson was incomplete at the goal line, and on the play the center Fernando Velsaco was knocked out of the game and replaced by Cody Wallace. On fourth down, with just 1:06 to play, Roethlisberger hit Jerricho Cotchery for the one-yard touchdown, pulling within two at 22-20. The Steelers went for the two-point conversion, but Sanders wasn’t able to pull it in.

The Steelers attempted the onsides kick, but it failed to go 10 yards and the Ravens held on to win 22-20.

Joe Flacco hit Jacoby Jones for 10 yards, Torrey Smith for eight yards, and Marlon Brown for 12 yards. Flacco went back to Smith for another 10 yard gain on third-and-eight, and then Ray Rice added a nine-yard gain to the Steelers 11-yard line. A stout defense kept the Ravens out of the end zone, forcing them to settle for a Justin Tucker 34-yard field goal, and 13-0 lead.

Ben Roethlisberger got the offense going with a 21-yard completion to Heath Miller, and Le’Veon Bell followed it up with a six-yard gain off right guard. Bell broke loose down the left sideline for a 43-yard gain, setting the Steelers up with a first-and-goal at the eight yard line. On third down, Roethlisberger hit Emmanuel Sanders in the end zone for the touchdown, closing the gap to 13-7.

Special teams gave the Ravens a boost when Jacoby Jones returned the kickoff 73 yards to the Steelers 27-yard line. The defense held strong, stopping them on a third-and-six at the seven yard line and bringing on Tucker for his third field goal of the night and a 16-7 lead.

Steelers lead 20-3 after third

Posted by Teresa Varley on November 24, 2013 – 3:21 pm

Third Quarter

The Browns got the ball to start the half, but the defense forced a three-and-out courtesy of Will Allen holding Greg Little to a four-yard completion on third-and-five.

Ben Roethlisberger went to work from his own 23-yard line finding Le’Veon Bell for 11 yards. Bell added a six-yard gain, and Roethlisberger went to Emmanuel Sanders for six more yards and the first down. Heath Miller pulled in a six-yard reception and Bell added a three-yard gain. Jonathan Dwyer was stopped on consecutive carries for no gain, giving the Browns the ball on downs.

It would be the Steelers defense that would come up big next. Will Gay came on the blitz and hit Jason Campbell, knocking the ball free and Will Allen recovered and returned it 49 yards to the four-yard line.

The Steelers converted fast with a four-yard touchdown pass from Roethlisberger to Sanders for a 20-3 lead.

Brandon Weeden got the call again at quarterback, and got the Browns going, driving them down to the 28-yard line. They would go no further, and on fourth down Billy Cundiff’s 46-yard field goal sailed wide left in the wind.

Steelers, Browns tied after first quarter, 3-3

Posted by Teresa Varley on November 24, 2013 – 1:34 pm

First Quarter

Cleveland won the toss, but deferred, giving the Steelers the ball to start the game. Ben Roethlisberger opened it up with a 14-yard pass to Emmanuel Sanders, and Le’Veon Bell added a 13-yard carry off right guard. Working out of the no-huddle Roethlisberger hit Heath Miller over the middle for 12-yards and then back to Bell for four-yards off right tackle to the Browns 27-yard line. That was as far as the Steelers would go, as the Browns stopped Bell for consecutive one-yard losses. Shaun Suisham, kicking into the wind, got the Steelers on the board with a 47-yard field goal and early 3-0 lead.

The Browns came right back after Fozzy Whittaker returned the kickoff 32 yards to the Browns 35-yard line. Jason Campbell hit Josh Gordon for 24 yards to the Steelers 36-yard line. A false start gave the Browns a second-and-15, and Chris Ogbonnaya gained five yards off left guard. Campbell hit Davone Bess for only five yards, coming up short of the first down. The Browns had to settle for a 49-yard Billy Cundiff field goal to tie the game at 3-3.

Nose tackle Steve McLendon was injured on the final play of the quarter.

At the end of the quarter, game tied at 3-3

Steelers make a wish come true

Posted by Teresa Varley on November 15, 2013 – 9:27 pm

When Steelers practice ended and Ben Roethlisberger walked over to 15-year old Jessica Converse, you could just feel the excitement. Because for Converse, the wish she made almost a year ago, was coming true. And her smile was as bright as can be.

Converse is visually and hearing impaired, considered legally blind and deaf, and also suffers from an enlarged heart, high blood pressure and is diabetic. She was the Steelers guest at practice through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, meeting Roethlisberger and his teammates.  

“I am just so glad she was able to get her wish with all of the different problems she has,” said her mother, Michelle Converse. “She has been waiting for this and it was so overwhelming and exciting for all of us.

“When Ben came over and met her, it was the most awesome thing I ever saw. I got overwhelmed when they all came up around her.”

Miller “feels pretty good” after practice

Posted by Teresa Varley on September 18, 2013 – 9:34 pm

 As promised tight end Heath Miller was a full participant in practice on Wednesday, but his status for Sunday night’s game against the Chicago Bears has yet to be determined.

“We’ll see,” said Miller. “We’ll see how it feels in the morning and try to keep pushing it through the week and see how it holds up. It feels pretty good right now. I think today was a good day. We’ll see how it feels tomorrow.”

Miller practiced in a limited role last week, but Wednesday was the first time he went full tilt in practice.

“We’ll see how it responds,” said Miller. “After a couple of days in a row we’ll see where we are at. I am encouraged by the way I felt today. We’ll just see how the knee reacts. Hopefully it will hold up and we will have a positive week.”

Heath_Miller_9_23_2012_vs_Raiders
Tight end Heath Miller’s return to the playing field took another step in the right direction when he practiced on Wednesday and said he was able to take part in team drills.

“I practiced. Like I’ve said all along, I am just trying to add more stuff and continue to get better, and we will see where it takes us,” said Miller. “I did a little bit of everything. I felt good. I’m sure we’ll have to wait until tomorrow, and Coach (Mike) Tomlin will keep you up-to-date on the plan the rest of the week.”

Miller said he hasn’t ruled out the potential of playing on Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals.

“I have an open mind,” said Miller. “I just want to keep getting better every day. I am sure we will make a decision when the time is appropriate.”
