1st Quarter In-Game Update

2nd Quarter In-Game Update

New England got the first possession of the second half, and Brady answered Roethlisberger’s long drive to end the first half with one of his own. This drive included several key conversions, but none bigger than a 4th-and-1 pass to Rob Gronkowski, and a 3rd-and-goal touchdown pass to Brandin Cooks. However, Stephen Gostkowski missed the point-after to keep the Pittsburgh lead 17-16.

After a Pittsburgh punt, the Steelers defense intercepted Tom Brady for the first time in 12 years when Vince Williams tipped a pass and corralled it for the first turnover of the game, giving the Steelers offense tremendous field position.

Just a few minutes later, it was Le’Veon Bell diving into the endzone for the Pittsburgh touchdown, giving the home team a 24-16 lead in the third quarter.

The Steelers had possession of the ball at the end of the third quarter.
