Steelers Vs. Cardinals Score Update: Arizona Cuts Pittsburgh Lead To 17-14 After Long Touchdown Pass

Once again, the Pittsburgh Steelers are letting a team hang around after jumping out to a big early lead. The Arizona Cardinals now trail just 17-14 after a Kevin Kolb to Larod Stephens-Howling 73 yard touchdown pass.

Arizona running back Beanie Wells, who left late in the first half with an apparent knee sprain, has yet to return to the field, but it did not hamper the Cardinals on their six play, 80 yard scoring drive that took just two and a half minutes.

The Steelers have played sloppy defensively throughout the game, missing tackles and accumulating killer penalties that have allowed the Cardinals to maintain drives.

Ben Roethlisberger and company will need to continue to put points on the board, as the hometown Cardinals now have the crowd and momentum behind them.
