14-0 Green Bay At The End Of The First Quarter: Green Bay Has Total Control

Ben Roethlisberger drops back on the first play after the Packer touchdown, gets hit hard, and throws a lame duck pass that is easily intercepted.

This is the story of the first quarter for Pittsburgh.

Aaron Rodgers has struggled a bit, but he was able to lead his team on one heck of a drive. it was a nine play drive that took up nearly five minutes and resulted in a huge touchdown.

On the other side, Pittsburgh has struggled through the air, going only 4-8 with 20 yards. The running game has picked them up a bit. They have 53 yards on the ground, 33 of these coming from running back Rashard Mendenhall.

There was a bit of a scare near the end of the quarter as Ben  Roethlisberger slipped and appeared to hurt his leg. However, on the very next play, he scrambled and took the ball for 18 yards and a first down.
