The defense did better when the steelers were more predictable with the run.

The 3rd and 10 early in that drive was an opportunity lost.  Ryan should have been able to get through the "screen" and made the tackle. 

Crisp and balanced drive for the Steelers.  Pats need to respond.

Big play missed there by Brady.   And now 3-10. 

Pats not getting anywhere on the ground.

2 Huge third down plays on that drive.

That was an incredible play. I was fooled, along with the whole Steelers defense. Brilliant call by McDaniels.

The safeties won't be breaking in so fast on run plays now

Great point. That play could've been designed as much for that purpose as for the touchdown.

Let's go defense.  Stop 'em.

Huge play coming up.  Stop here would be great.  Steelers with a chance to score on either end of the half.     Getting no pressure.

That zone D is not effective without any pressure.

Pats D has gotten a couple of lucky breaks with two Pittsburgh drops that could've easily been touchdowns. Seems like the Pats are playing to not give up the big play, but Big Ben has taken advantage with the short game and is just marching the Steelers down the field. A big play or two from the Pats D would be nice.

Typical lack of pass rush from NE. And yeah, I'm not liking the zone D, either.

Dang that was bad.  Pats getting absolutely nothing on Rothlesberger.   Stands there and waits.

Ah great. Speaking of getting hurt by no pass rush ... Ben had all day to make that pass. Might not be a TD on review, but I doubt they'll fail to get in from a foot.
