Steelers roll over Bills 38-7 in preseason action

PSR Logo
Ben Roethlisberger finished 17 of 24 for 169 yards passing, including a 6-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown to cap a 98-yard drive in the final seconds of the first half. Brown also scored on a 39-yard TD pass from Byron Leftwich a minute into the second half in helping the Steelers to a 38-7 victory over the Bills.

The Pittsburgh Steelers found themselves on their own two yard line, but once again Ben Roethlisberger was able to work his magic leading to a touchdown.


This was just part of the Steelers 38-7 victory over the Buffalo Bills.


The Bills led 7-0 after one quarter, and the Steelers struggled to gain positive yards. The lone score was a one yard run from Fred Jackson.


The Steelers recovered from their slow start scoring two touchdowns in the second quarter. The first was a two yard run from Isaac Redman to tie the game.


The second touchdown came on the 98 yard drive. Roethlisberger completed a crucial pass to Jonathan Dwyer on a third and nine at their own three yard line that went for 33 yards. From there, the Steelers drove the ball down the field, until Antonio Brown redeemed himself his drops earlier in the game with a six yard touchdown.


In the third quarter, Byron Leftwich came in and on his first pass attempt, completed a 39 yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown. The drive was set up because of an interception from Troy Polamalu.


With the outcome of the game decided, Chris Rainey ran in for a 41 yard touchdown, showing off his speed.


In the game, Roethlisberger and Leftwich combined to go 22-32 for 269 yards and three touchdowns.


There was bad news for the Steelers though, as right guard David DeCastro was carted off the field with a right knee injury. Following the game, Head Coach Mike Tomlin said the injury was “partially severe” and many expect it may be season ending.


The Steelers are now 2-1 in the preseason, and will conclude with a game on Thursday against the Carolina Panthers. The kickoff will be 7 PM at Heinz Field.
