It’s taken a little while to find the gas pedal. But find it they have, thanks to receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey.

With the Steelers trailing 3-0, the veteran receiver came from left to right behind the formation, took a handoff, and rocketed 60 yards for a score.

Coach Mike Tomlin decided to go for two, and the Steelers converted, thanks to a pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Le’Veon Bell.

The Dolphins got a field goal on their first drive of the game, but it could/should have been a touchdown. Receiver DeVante Parker.

Steelers safety Mike Mitchell suffered a knee injury early; he’s questionable to return.
