Rams Vs. Steelers Score: Rashard Mendenhall, Charlie Batch Help Steelers To 13-0 Lead

Shaun Suisham hit his second field goal of the game, a beautiful 49-yarder, to put the Steelers up 13-0 against the Rams early in the third quarter. The Rams had a chance to get on the board at the end of the second half, but they missed a field goal.

As John Lynch has pointed out on the broadcast, Charlie Batch has looked Ben Roethlisberger-like at times, ducking out the pocket and avoiding tackles before dropping off improvised passes, allowing speedy young receivers Antonio Brown and Mike Wallace to pick up yards after the catch. Brown is now right around 1,000 yards for the season.

The Steelers have, unsurprisingly, largely outplayed the Rams, with Rashard Mendenhall in particular having a big game (13 catches for 105 yards rushing, plus 35 yards receiving). John Clay scored the Steelers’ only touchdown on the first rush of his NFL career.
