End 3rd qtr: Steelers 31, Raiders 21

Ben Roethlisberger threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown recovered his own fumble in the end zone to more than offset a 1-yard Carson Palmer touchdown pass to Richard Gordon as the Steelers took a 10-point lead into the fourth quarter.

Roethlisberger was 31 of 43 for 323 yards with three touchdowns, with the Raiders unable to generate enough pressure to help a beleaguered secondary.

Palmer completed passes of 18, 11, 16 and 5 yards in succession to Denarius Moore, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Brandon Myers and finally Marcel Reece to put the Raiders on the Pittsburgh 28 as the quarter ended.

    I love Knapp’s offense

    the Allen/Tarver defense is pathetic though

  • RaidingTexas

    Palmer keeping the play alive. Very nice. And Moore nice cradle catch.

    Way to redeem the injury to DHB!

  • RaiderRockstar

    Why were Schmitt & Gordon on the sideline when we were at the 1-yard line ??

    we kind of gave the play away, before the false start

  • Al_is_theraiders

    i thought tarver was supposed to have a tough d

  • http://klas.com Klas Tjorborn

    Still need to get lucky on defense.

  • TerrapinRaider

    Knapp is finally getting it (hopefully) ..push the ball down field. Thats what these guys are made for!

    Now all he needs to do is scrap this all ZBS scheme and get DMC going good. Run a mix of Power and Zone and this O will be lights out.

    Hope DHB is good. Damn it hurt seeing him down. That guy is better than a lot of you think. Seriously, this year wouldve been dynamite for him if we didnt switch up the offense.
