After a three-and-out of their own, the Steelers were able to manufacture a drive, but once again had to settle for a field-flipping drive.
Another Steelers’ three-and-out, and a Pressley Harvin 30-yard punt, gave Buffalo the ball at the Pittsburgh 35-yard line. A 3rd down strip sack of Josh Allen by T.J. Watt was recovered by Cam Heyward, giving the Steelers’ offense their best starting field position of the game. The struggling Pittsburgh offensive line was unable to generate a scoring drive, before sending Harvin back on the field for the fifth time in the half to punt the ball away.
Buffalo’s dynamic offense started to warm up on their next possession, and before you knew it the Bills were in scoring range again. After an Allen sneak for a first down inside the 10-yard line, they have a 1st and goal with 39 seconds remaining in the half. An incompletion on first down and an Allen run on second down set up a 3rd and goal from the three yard line. Allen was able to find Gabriel Davis for the touchdown, giving the Bills a 10-0 lead heading into halftime.
