Bills vs. Steelers second half open thread

From the ashes of a season comes Pittsburgh's running game.

The Steelers are getting great contributions in their running game as they've taken a 10-3 lead over Buffalo at halftime in Week 10.

The Steelers' offense started slowly, as Ben Roethlisberger threw an interception on the game's first possession. Along with that, a drop from Heath Miller and two completions for negative yardage came before an overthrow deep to Emmanuel Sanders and a 27-yard punt from Mat McBriar.

Since then, though, all Steelers.

Roethlisberger hit Jerricho Cotchery on a five-yard touchdown pass with under two minutes remaining in the half. It was Cotchery's fourth touchdown in the last two games.

Pittsburgh has rushed for 99 yards and has outgained the Bills 202-82 in taking a rare halftime lead into the locker room.

Buffalo will get the ball to start the third quarter, and their offense, out of sync and flat, is only gaining 3.3 yards per carry in the first two quarters.
