Steelers Vs. Texans: Steelers Show Signs Of Life In Third Quarter, Now Behind 10-7

Well, how about that. After a first half in which they got thoroughly owned, the Steelers got the ball back to start the second half and immediately marched down the field for a score. The drive was led by Ben Roethlisberger, who had a 19-yard pass to Hines Ward and a 23-yard pass to Antonio Brown. Roethlisberger then had an eight-yard run on a crucial third-and-six at the Texans’ 11-yard-line. Rashard Mendenhall scored on a three-yard run.

And so the Steelers are back in it, 10-7. Amazingly, they still have a shot at a win after a terrible first half. They’ll need to stop Arian Foster and the Texans’ ground game if they’re going to have a chance. Let’s see if their defense can respond the way their offense has. They just stuffed the Texans on their first possession of the half, so that’s a good sign. The Steelers now have the ball at their own 37-yard-line with five minutes left to play in the third quarter.
