The Steelers answered with a 10-play, 76-yard drive culminating in a seven-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown from Ben Roethlisberger to make it 17-7 with 2:41 remaining in the second quarter. Roethlisberger's 14 yard completion to Mike Wallace on second and 10 from the 27 put the Steelers at the 13 yard line. Another pass to Isaac Redman for five yards set up Brown's score.
