Patriots At Steelers: Escape After Escape Gets Steelers On The Board, 10-3

The Patriots defense looked about as good on this drive as they did on the previous two, but Ben Roethlisberger escaped multiple sack opportunities by inches, and the Steelers picked up some very close third down conversions to keep the drive alive and get within a touchdown of the Patriots.

Meanwhile, the Patriots offense has been a little less polished on their last couple of drives. Drops and penalties have stalled things, leading to a punt just outside of field goal range, and one much deeper in their own territory. Tom Brady is still looking accurate, though, and the offensive line is doing its job, so things should right themselves as the game continues.
