The Steelers previously looked unbeatable and the Dolphins previously looked horrible. So, obviously, the Dolphins lead 16-8 at halftime of the game.

A late one-yard touchdown run by Damien Williams extended the Miami lead from 9-8 to 16-8.

The Steelers finished the half without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who has a left knee injury. He’s officially questionable to return.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has completed 14 of 20 passes for 175 yards, with no turnovers and no sacks.

    Should be up by more. Dropped TD pass, penalty on another TD pass… Of course both Tannehills fault.

    And here we go again. Roethlisberger is not indestructible. So why, oh why, can’t the Steelers get a competent backup? We haven’t had a serviceable backup since Charlie Batch retired. Landry Jones is just awful. When Ben was suspended, we were in good shape when he came back. If we’d been in New England’s position this year, our season would be over. If we lose Ben for any length of time during the season, we can just write “finished” on 2016.

    Dolphins fans have been waiting to see the coaches call rollouts to evade pressure and take advantage of Tannehill’s athleticism. This game they have FINALLY done it. Pitt is doing their usual of playing down to the opponent and Miami’s stupidity by certain guys on key plays have kept it from being an unexpected route. They finally learned to run block also. Pittsburgh is the better team but so far today Miami is playing better.

    On a side note, when Miami kicked that onside kick before the whistle, how is that just a do-over and not at least a 5 yard delay of game penalty on Miami?
