Steelers vs. Broncos, 2012 AFC Wild Card: Pittsburgh Leads 6-0 After Second Field Goal

It's early, but Heath Miller looks like Ben Roethlisberger's right hand man in their AFC Wild Card game against the Denver Broncos. He connected with Miller on a seven-yard pass to get the drive started. Miller now has three catches for 48 yards.

Isaac Redman converted on second-and-three with a six yard run through the middle. Next, the Steelers went deep to Mike Wallace, but he and the ball never made the connection. They went back to Redman, who picked up a nine-yard gain. That was followed by two, two-yard gains by Redman. On second-and-eight, Ben Roethlisberger found Emmanuel Sanders on a seven-yard pass.

With a good rhythm established, they went back to Redman who picked up 13 yards to move the Steelers to the Denver 21-yard line. In the red zone, they managed to pick up just one more yard before settling for another Shaun Suisham field goal, this one a 38-yarder, to make it 6-0.
