The first quarter was nothing but defense, with multiple three and outs by both teams, and two goose eggs on the scoreboard. However, the second quarter was a bit better.

After a turnover by Pittsburgh and a three and out by New England, we finally got a score. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw a nice pass over to wide receiver Eli Rogers for the score. This put the Steelers in the lead 7-0.

This would be the only score in the second quarter, and the Patriots looked clueless on both sides of the football. Quarterback Tom Brady, the primary leader for New England, wound up on the ground multiple times, being sacked twice, as well as being hit after multiple passes.

The second half started out with more failed drives, but that streak was broken late in the third. Kicker Chris Boswell knocked in a short range kick, putting Pittsburgh up 10-0.

New England’s next drive started out well but had an unfortunate ending. Brady fumbled the ball thanks to a sack by defensive end Bud Dupree. Steelers got the ball back at their own 38.

New England would finally be able to get into the endzone on their next drive with a pass to tight end Martellus Bennett. Unfortunately, it was too late. They couldn’t stop the Pittsburgh offense again as they went down to score a field goal, putting them up 20-7.

The MVP has to go to Pittsburgh’s defense. They were able to get to Brady, stop the run game, and break up passes when necessary. This caused New England to score only one touchdown, as well as giving the Steelers’ offense enough time to score 20 points. A defensive performance like this would help them a lot in the Super Bowl in two weeks.
