It wasn't a pretty day for the Pittsburgh Steelers offense inside the Miami Dolphins' red zone. The Steelers had three trips inside the 20, none of which resulted in touchdowns. Of course, the final trip to the RZ resulted in a game-winning field goal after the controversial fumble by Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers also scored from 21 yards out on a Hines Ward catch and run. But for the first time really all year, the running game failed to get going, and that included when the Steelers had marched down inside the 20.
