Patriots Vs Steelers Score Update: Steelers March Downfield

Running back Mewelde Moore scored on a short pass at the 9:08 mark of the first quarter to make it 6-0 Steelers against the New England Patriots in Pittsburgh. Moore was to Roethlisberger's left and caught the pass before crossing the goal line, but was able to get into the end zone thanks to a block from Mike Wallace. The extra point was good to make 7-0.

The Steelers have scored on their opening drive in each of the past four weeks, with this one taking up 5:52 of game clock. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 66 yards during the drive with 55 yards and four completions going to tight end Heath Miller. The Steelers converted five first downs against a Patriots team that has leaned heavily on its offense during the first six games of the season. The Steelers had to have seen something on tape in the Patriots defensive backfield for them to only run the ball twice with running back Rashard Mendenhall for two yards. If this continues, this game could turn into a shootout. Well, unless the Steelers are able to stop Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady's early season tear.
