1st Quarter In-Game Update

2nd Quarter In-Game Update

The Broncos started the 3rd quarter with the football, and put together a drive which stalled a midfield, giving the ball back to Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense. Pittsburgh’s offense continued to put together time-consuming drives. They also continued a balanced approach to their play calling. It was this drive where Najee Harris broke the 100 yard mark for the first time this season, and Chase Claypool continued to be a big play machine with JuJu Smith-Schuster out of the game with a shoulder injury.

When it looked like the Steelers would settle for a Chris Boswell field goal, the Broncos were flagged for a personal foul, giving the Steelers a new set of downs. Facing a 3rd and 10, Roethlisberger delivered a strike to Chase Claypool for the touchdown.

Chris Boswell’s extra point was good, making the score 24-6 with 2:41 left in the third quarter.

The Broncos have the ball near midfield at the end of the 3rd quarter.
