Things still aren’t going the way a Steelers fan would want them, with a frustrating open to the third quarter. After a 13 play, 68 yard drive which featured a heavy dose of the Steelers run game, Shaun Suisham bounced a 36 yard field goal attempt off of the left upright.
The Steelers stymied the Colts on the next possession, forcing a three and out.
Roethlisberger has avoided turning the ball over, and has had remarkable success tonight on third down. That said, it’s disconcerting that the Steelers have only been able to tally 10 points so far in this one. Outside of a fantastic first quarter, the black and gold haven’t been able to accomplish much.
It would seem right now the biggest task facing the Steelers as they enter fourth quarter is getting out of their own way. The defense continues to clamp down on Kerry Collins and company, but the offensive has been mired with miscues. For the Steelers to pull this one out, that has to change.
