Steelers Vs. Raiders Halftime Score: Pittsburgh Leads 17-14 At Intermission

Ben Roethlisberger has been absolutely on fire against the Oakland Raiders, but the Pittsburgh Steelers have just a 17-14 lead at halftime. Roethlisberger has connected with 10 different receivers already, including two short touchdowns to tight end Heath Miller, and has looked crisp in the pocket. He's been helped by his much-maligned offensive line, which has given him tons of time to throw.

Roethlisberger was able to lead the Steelers down the field with less than a minute to go before the half and set up a Shaun Suisham for a 33-yard field goal as time expired for the lead. The Steelers likely would have scored more had Jonathan Dwyer not lost a fumble. Roethlisberger is 22-31 for 207 yards and those two scores.

For the Raiders, Darren McFadden, bolstered by a 64-yard touchdown run, has 68 rushing yards on the half. Carson Palmer hit Darrius Heyward-Bey in the end zone late in the second quarter to briefly tie the game, but other than that, the Raiders' offense has been largely contained. They've gained just 105 yards so far in the game, as the Steelers have dominated the ball.
