Raiders running wild over Steelers at halftime

An old school rivalry is producing a surprisingly old school beatdown.

After Terrelle Pryor took the first snap of the game for the longest touchdown run by an NFL quarterback (93 yards), the Raiders continued to pile onto their margin, leading the Steelers 21-3 at halftime.

With Darren McFadden running for two more touchdowns and the Raiders rushing for 183 yards in the first half, the Steelers have managed just 106 total yards.

It’s been a weird half for the Steelers, who burned their first replay challenge on a relatively meaningless Heath Miller catch, then lost their second one on a bizarre punt that could have been a huge momentum swing.

Raiders return man Jacoby Ford slipped while trying to field the punt, and the ball hit him on the foot. But the ruling on the field was that a Steelers player touched it first, and Mike Tomlin challenged that, and lost.

Coupled with an offense that still looks disjointed (just 8 rushing yards), and kicker Shaun Suisham’s first missed field goal of the season, it’s a nightmare half for the 2-4 Steelers.

    For a team “that doesn’t particularly do anything well,” the Raiders defense is looking “particularly well” so far.

  4. rajbais says: Oct 27, 2013 5:44 PM

    Again, why did fantasy football “Experts” say to sit Terrelle Pryor???

    The Steelers were 27th in run defense prior to the game.

    Terrelle Pryor wasn’t going to run all over them???

    Its hard to go coast-to-coast, the records of teams have proven this over the years. Not all that surprising…

    Terrelle Pryor is putting the Tebow on the pittsburgh steelers.

    Tebow reference related to Tebow DESTROYING the pittsburgh steelers in the playoffs.

    There is only one true NFL nation – Raiders Nation.

    Just Win Baby!

    Hope raider nation is hype about that run, suns gotta shine on a dogs butt every once in awhile

    RAIDERS BABY!!

    The Steelers are Humpty-Dumpty all over the floor, they need a new guy to put the pieces back together once more.

    The Niners went all the way to London and did OK.

    I couldn’t be happier for the Raider Nation to finally have a play maker under center.

    While Pryor is still rough around the edges after a season or two he has the potential to be a franchise QB. The AFC West is going to be a tough division for years to come.

    As I’ve said before when both Oakland and SF play great it makes the Bay a better place.

    Where are the steeler fan excuses?

  16. realitycheckbaby says: Oct 27, 2013 6:14 PM

    As more than one on here suggested…

    Why not trade Ben for several first round picks.

    Because, gosh, when isn’t a career 90 rated QB not worth several first round picks.

    Karma baby.

  17. doctorrustbelt says: Oct 27, 2013 6:19 PM

    Going WEST for Eastern Time Zone teams is harder especially late game.

    That said…. all four of pittsburgh’s losses have happened in the Midwest or the South (Cincinnati, Tennessee, Chicago, Minnesota).

  18. steelersaregodsteam says: Oct 27, 2013 6:30 PM

    The refs in this game are just ridiculous. I have never seen such one-sideness from the stripes. Steelers would be leading.

    Triple fluke don’t ya know. :)

    Pryor is a flash in the pan and nothing more. A Cam newton knock-off at best sorry

  21. doctorrustbelt says: Oct 27, 2013 6:39 PM

    Don’t be giving science a thumbs down, anti-science republicans.

    It has been proven that it is more difficult for East Coast teams to travel WEST (than West Coast traveling EAST).

    Just the facts.

  22. donmcg2012 says: Oct 27, 2013 6:42 PM

    Ben isn’t worth a 5th round pick.

  23. quittsburghstoolers says: Oct 27, 2013 6:47 PM

    Letting a QB rush for a record long 93 yard TD run doesn’t bode well for this team.

    If they can’t pull off a miracle comeback, this game looks to be the final nail in the Steeler coffin.

    Too many better teams with better records ahead of them to even dream of the playoff this year…

  24. donmcg2012 says: Oct 27, 2013 6:53 PM

    They won’t be in the playoffs for 3 more years. Tomlin has worn out his welcome and the talent level shows that.

  25. quittsburghstoolers says: Oct 27, 2013 7:02 PM

    Watch the Pryor TD run. It’s awesome!

    He runs 93 yards up the middle of the field and wasn’t touched by a single Steeler player.

    Looks like the Pittsburgh “D” has a big ol’ hole it…

    Usually don’t bother responding to your posts, but this one is dumber than usual. You have it backwards. It’s when teams travel WEST TO EAST that’s a problem, Mr Science. When they have to play at 1 EST, their body clocks are at 10AM. Fact, look it up. That’s why jet lag is worse coming east.

  27. carolinadude7 says: Oct 27, 2013 7:09 PM

    Hey rust belt, I believe my panthers came in last year and dominated both the raiders and the chargers hands down. So your hypothesis on east coast coming to west coast is invalid. Not a republican…but a constitutionalist.

  28. donmcg2012 says: Oct 27, 2013 7:11 PM

    Yeah, those refs should have tackled Pryor since the steelers couldn’t even touch him. Typical steelerfan tears.

  29. 700levelvet says: Oct 27, 2013 7:18 PM

    Perhaps, god has taken the afternoon off…

    The Steelers were much better when Ben was boozing and chasing skanks. God-fearing family man Ben doesn’t seem to be working.

    Crown will be right. 52-0 Pittsburg win lmfao.
