The Steelers finally started to move the ball midway through the second quarter, but saw their drive sputter when penalties negated several big first downs. While not all of the calls were bad, there have been several very questionable penalties called including an holding call on a first down that was obviously just a good block. The biggest issue so far for the Steelers has been a porous offensive line that is struggling against a really good Titans defense. Roethlisberger has yet to have a clean pocket to throw from.
The Steelers were forced to punt, and the Titans are moving the ball again. Hero of the first quarter, Troy Polamalu, just got ran over on a key third down play and then took a facemask penalty.
