Steelers Vs. Bills: Offense Stalls, But Steelers Lead 10-0

The Steelers have sustained their offense this afternoon with third-down conversions, and they stayed alive in their most recent drive after a fumble by Hines Ward was called back due to a penalty. Even though they scored on their first two drives, though, Ben Roethlisberger hasn’t played that well. He has thrown weak balls on a couple of passes that should have been completed, and in the Steelers’ third drive, the Bills’ pass rush got to him, getting his face regularly and sacking him on the third down that ended the drive. The Steelers might have ended up scoring anyway if a rather nit-picky holding call against Jonathan Scott hadn’t nullified a long completion to Ward, but overall it wasn’t a great drive anyway. The Bills’ offense continues to do very little, though, and the Steelers lead 10-0 with three minutes left before half. The Bills are driving now for the first time in the game.
