Several minutes into the second quarter, the Steelers still lead 3-0. Since the Steelers’ first-quarter field goal, the Steelers and Rams have exchanged punts. Kellen Clemens has played reasonably well for the Rams, but not well enough to build a sustained drive.
There was a moment of excitement early in the second quarter when the Rams went for a fake punt. Donnie Jones briefly looked like he was going to pass, but then, seeing a huge hole to his right, took off. Antonio Brown, who was in the play on the return, came all the way up and made the tackle a yard shy of the first-down marker.
Unfortunately, on the ensuing drive, Charlie Batch threw to Brown, but Brown slipped, and the pass was intercepted. That goes into Batch’s statistics, obviously, but it wasn’t really his fault. The Rams currently have the ball.
