Steelers able to throw early, lead Dolphins 7-3

The snow might be keeping some people from throwing the ball, but Ben Roethlisberger seems right at home.

The Steelers quarterback was 5-of-5 passing in the first quarter for 57 yards, including a touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders which has given them a 7-3 lead.

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill doesn’t look nearly as comfortable, completing just one pass. But a 48-yard scramble did get them into field goal range to close the gap a bit.

The Steelers are better built to play this style, or at least more used to it.
