Steelers 17, Patriots 10: BTSC Week 8 Gameday Thread (2nd Half)

Outstanding first half of football for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Outside of Ben Roethlisberger's interception, the Steelers executed very well in the first 30 minutes. Dick LeBeau's defense has certainly come to play, the offensive line has held up quite nicely, and Roethlisberger is distributing the ball to his bevy of playmakers intelligently. Heath Miller got the scoring started with a TD reception, Shaun Suisham extended the lead to 10-0 after the Steelers stalled out inside the Patriots' red zone, the Patriots then got on the board following Big Ben's interception, but Pittsburgh responded immediately with a 70 yard scoring drive capped off by Antonio Brown's first TD reception of the season. The Patriots then responded resiliently with a FG drive in the final minutes of the half to trim the deficit to 17-10. Come on Pittsburgh, don't let off the gas! Go Steelers!
