Steelers-Bills Score Update: Pittsburgh Leading Handily 21-7 After 3rd Quarter

After three quarters at Ralph Wilson Stadium, the Pittsburgh Steelers are comfortably leading the Buffalo Bills 21-7.

Backup quarterback Byron Leftwich started the second half for the Steelers and came out hot, completing all three of his passes for 69 yards and a touchdown.

Antonio Brown continued his tremendous effort into the 3rd quarter, hauling in two Leftwich throws including a beautiful 39-yard touchdown.

On the disappointing side of things, rookie left guard David DeCastro had to leave the action in the 1st quarter with what is being called a right knee injury. DeCastro was carted off the field after being pushed back by Marcell Dareus and falling on top of his leg.

On the field, the offense has been solid except for the total lack of a rushing attack. On the night, Pittsburgh has gained just 32 yards on 19 carries.

The defense looks good, with Troy Polamalu picking off a Vince Young pass towards the end of the 3rd quarter.
