Seahawks Vs. Steelers: Pittsburgh Dominating In Third Quarter, Leads 24-0

In the third quarter, the Steelers continue to dominate the Seattle Seahawks, leading by a score of 24-0.

Ben Roethlisberger, who got hit in the knee in the second quarter, came back in the third quarter and was played well, leading the Steelers’ first drive with a series of passes, including a two-yard pass to Mike Wallace for a score. Roethlisberger took a couple of steps back, then lofted the ball for Wallace on the left side.

The Steelers’ defense, meanwhile, hasn’t forced the Seahawks offense to turn the ball over, but it has still been dominant, forcing Seattle into one punt after another. The Seahawks have only five first downs, compared to 21 for the Steelers.

Wallace has 126 yards receiving so far, while Roethlisberger has 279 yards passing. The Seahawks, meanwhile, have only 105 total yards.
