Steelers in control at the half


The prison bumblebee look works for the Steelers.

Through the first half of Sunday’s home game against the Redskins, Pittsburgh leads comfortably, 20-6.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has led four scoring drives, throwing a pair of touchdown passes and 173 yards.  The Steelers have punted only once, at the end of the second quarter.

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has completed only five of 13 passes, but there have been several drops.  He has added only three yards rushing.

Barring dramatic improvement on both sides of the ball, the Redskins won’t be evening their record today.
