Steelers Vs. Cardinals Score Update: Late Arizona Touchdown Cuts Pittsburgh Lead To 32-20

The Arizona Cardinals have cut the Pittsburgh Steelers' lead to 32-20 with just under four minutes left in the game.

Arizona stopped a 15-0 scoring run by the Steelers with a Kevin Kold to Early Doucet two yard touchdown pass. The Cardinals were unable to convert on the subsequent two point conversion.

After allowing the Cardinals to climb back into the game at 17-14 early in the third quarter, Ben Roethlisberger and company took control of the game with a 10 play, 80 yard drive that ate up over five minutes of the clock and put the Steelers up 24-14. Kevin Kolb was called for intentionally grounding in the end zone on Arizona's next possession, and the Cardinals found themselves down 29-14 and virtually out of the game after that safety.

The loss of Beanie Wells in the first half has certainly hampered Arizona's offensive efforts, but perhaps not as much as the play of Pittsburgh linebacker LaMarr Woodley, who has spent the day harassing Kolb. Woodley has six solo tackles, two sacks, two tackles for loss and was the player who forced Kolb's safety.
