NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Chicago Bears Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

1st Quarter In-Game Update

On the next Steelers possession, it was a change-of-pace style which got the team moving. Primarily using the no-huddle offense, the team was able to rattle off a 13-play, time-eating drive which ended in a touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Antonio Brown to tie the score at 7-points a piece.

Following the Steelers’ touchdown drive, the Bears answered with their own, but they did it by running it right down the throat of the Pittsburgh defense. The threat of the run turned into a play-action touchdown pass from Mike Glennon to Adam Shaheen to give Chicago a 14-7 lead. Pittsburgh was the No. 3 defense in the NFL heading into Week 3, and surrendered over 100-yards on the ground in the first half.

With 43-seconds left in the quarter, and half, Pittsburgh drove into field goal range and a chance to cut the lead to 4 heading into halftime. Boswell’s kick was blocked and returned in what looked like would be a touchdown, but Vance McDonald caught up to the ball carrier, forced a fumble and Jordan Berry batted it out of the end zone. After a lengthy delay, the officials deemed the players had to play the ball from the one-yard line in an untimed down. After a Chicago false start, they decided to settle for a Barth field goal to give them a 10-point lead at halftime.

The Bears will receive the ball the start the second half.
