Halftime: Steelers 17, Raiders 14

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, September 23rd, 2012 at 3:00 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Shaun Suisham kicked a 33-yard field goal at the gun to give the Steelers a three-point halftime lead.

It was a downer for the Raiders in that less than two minutes before, Carson Palmer’s 3-yard pass to Darrius Heyward-Bey tied the score at 14. The Raiders capitalized on a Pittsburgh turnover _ Desmond Bryant forced a Jonathan Dwyer fumble at the Pittsburgh 40 _ to get the score even.

Oakland’s dilemma in the second half will be to slow Ben Roethlisberger, who completed six passes for 64 yards in the two-minute drill as Pittsburgh regained the lead. Pittsburgh went into the half with more than 200 yards passing.

  • Purvisman/Intrepid/ Full Disclosure

    Don’t understand where our pass rushers aren’t.

  • DJ Johnny

    I guess it’s too much too ask that this defense make a freaking stop…?

    This is a lot like Charger game last year.

  • Carl Weathers

    Blitzing McClain just take one player off defense, why bother?

  • R8RNAZ

    We need to blitz the crap out of em

  • RaidingTexas

    Steelers 8 penalties to Raiders 0. Wow. LOL

  • Al_is_theraiders

  • R8RNAZ

    We need to blitz the crap out of em now

  • Carl Weathers

  • Purvisman/Intrepid/ Full Disclosure

    Kill, Kill, Kill. Is that too fvcking complicated.

  • RaidingTexas

    Amazing to watch a team actually make dink and dunk work.

  • redshirt

    no penalties so far… but dont worry, we’ll give up something huge in the 4th when it really matters

  • DJ Johnny

    As far as i’m concerned, bring back the penalties…at least we won every now and then.

  • DJ Johnny

    Our “defense: is nauseating….

    Could it be even worse than lasy yr.?

  • jesusraiderjim

    271 good question

  • Al_is_theraiders

    yeah they are playing zone coverage def worse

  • Dakota

  • RaiderDebo

    just can’t catch a fckin break.

  • RaidingTexas

    Well, there’s the stupid penalty. You were right.

  • R8RNAZ

    could be way worse

  • Purvisman/Intrepid/ Full Disclosure

    You all worried about a dink and dunk offense. how about our give ‘em dink and dunk tds defense

  • DJ Johnny

    Way to bring the D to Oakland DA.

  • Purvisman/Intrepid/ Full Disclosure

  • RaiderRockstar

    ====================================================
    At some point, you have to just get rid of the guys that don’t add any value

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    No penalties = lack of aggressiveness.

  • VanHeathen30

    Thought you couln’t fumble the ball forward into the end zone & recover?

  • J Hill

    There is just no way to explain Tarver letting these corners line up 10 yds off.

    There might be 2 guys in the league who would have been able to make that tackle and Huff AINT one of the 2.

    Ben is toying with the D.

    Great run D though, eh???

  • JT

    The D is gased, its about 2 to 1 pitts ofensive plays to raiders
    Also a lot of no hudle

  • Purvisman/Intrepid/ Full Disclosure

    how can you post comments to quickly on DSL? what year is this?

  • redshirt

    is there a 0-3 team worse than Oakland? not N.O.

  • DaTruth91

    u cant fumble the ball into the end zone and recover it for a fumble

  • jesusraiderjim

    What up RRS?

    I really had high hopes for this d line in Pre season

    Got to get a stop for FVCK sakes

  • R8RNAZ

    well now we gotta score again

  • Purvisman/Intrepid/ Full Disclosure

    Hell, seymour was the voice of reason in there.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    The secondary is depleted…and no one else on the defense, except Bryant, has the courage to step up and make a play

  • J Hill

    Despite the fact the Steelers have 30 pts before the 3rd qtr is over, pretty sure the Knapp haters will be loud, lol.

  • Purvisman/Intrepid/ Full Disclosure

    well now we gotta score again///////3 times

  • redshirt

    DA looks like a hairless butch dýke about cry.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Wonder why the coaches wouldn’t have retained a 3rd down rusher type…Moss, Scott

  • jesusraiderjim

    I thought a fumble into the end zone was dead at the spot and could not be advanced for the touch down. I don’t know shvt though except we need to score again.

  • R8RNAZ

    we jusy gotta keep at it and hope for another mistake by pitt

  • JT

    Defense is gased
