Steelers Vs. Cardinals Halftime Score: Pittsburgh Leads Arizona 17-7 In The Desert

The Pittsburgh Steelers lead the Arizona Cardinals 17-7 at halftime, behind two Ben Roethlisberger touchdown tosses and a Shaun Suisham field goal. The story of the first half, however, may be the copious amounts of penalties committed by the Steelers, costly penalties that have allowed Arizona to sustain drives and directly resulted in the Cardinals' lone score. Ike Taylor in particular has had a rough afternoon, having yellow laundry thrown in his direction multiple times.

Pittsburgh got on the board first with a 12 yard Big Ben to Heath Miller toss, and stretched their lead to 14 points on a dynamic 95 pass play between the Steelers quarterback and wide receiver rocket Mike Wallace.

Arizona finally scored late in the first quarter, on a one yard Alfonso Smith touchdown run after a 13 play, 80 yard drive, a drive kept alive twice by costly Pittsburgh penalties.

Smith was in the game for Arizona because Beanie Wells has sustained an apparent knee sprain. His return is questionable.
