You get the feeling the first team to score a touchdown is going to win this game?
Here are three things I like from the first half and three things I don't like.
Things I like:
- Steelers are stopping Ray Rice: He's got 26 yards on 12 carries.
- Rashard Mendenhall: I know he's only got 18 yards on five carries. But I just like the way he looks and think he can be a factor in the second half.
- Offensive line: I know Ben Roethlisberger got sacked, forcing the Steelers to kick a field goal. But one sack in a half isn't bad. Especially with Terrell Suggs lurking.
Thinks I don't like:
- Steelers' defense on third down: Can't find the stats. But I know it sucks.
- No turnovers: No longer am I the lone voice in the wilderness on this. NBC had a graphic demonstrating the Steelers' turnover futility. Of course they don't jinx that.
- Steelers' kickoff coverage: David Reed had a couple of long ones.
