Near the end of a mostly-quiet second quarter, the Steelers increased their lead to 17-10 after a drive dominated by Antonio Brown ended in a field goal.
Early in the drive, Brown made a huge catch on third-and-long to keep the Steelers going. He then picked up another third-down catch with the Steelers at their own 39. Two plays later, he sneaked in a 17-yard catch. Ben Roethlisberger then appeared to throw a second touchdown pass to Jerricho Cotchery, but the play was called back on offensive pass interference. Then it was another big completion to – who else? – Antonio Brown on first-and-20 to give the Steelers a first down at the Bengals’ 13. They couldn’t get into the end zone, as Roethlisberger was sacked on first down, but Shaun Suisham kicked a field goal.
It’s currently halftime, and the Steelers still lead by a touchdown. For more on the Steelers, check out Behind The Steel Curtain.
