The Steelers desperately needed to regain some momentum before they enter the locker room, and they did just that. Two straight passes from Ben Roethlisberger to Hines Ward ended with a touchdown for Pittsburgh and brought The Steelers to within 11 before the end of the first half.
Ben Roethlisberger, who had struggled to hit open receivers and had throw a couple interceptions, got his head back in the game and led his team on a seven play, 77 yard drive that resulted in a touchdown. The key plays were the final two, both from Roethlisberger to Ward. The first pass was 17 yards and the second one was into the endzone eight yards away.
The game started a little slow, with both teams trying to get a feel for their surroundings, the game has really picked up. If this can continue, we should be in for a real shoot out in the second half.
