    Week 8: Dolphins(3) @ Steelers(36)

    Steelers Defense - Resurrection of the STEEL CURTAIN.

    For the second straight week, the Pittsburgh defense outscores their opposing offense. Still riding the high from their Week 6 division win, the Steelers put on an even better encore performance vs a tough Dolphins squad.

    The first quarter was dominated by defense. Steelers kicker Jeff Reed breaks the scoring drought with a 20-yd FG after a great goal line stand by a solid Dolphins defense. Not long after, Steelers new aquired Pro Bowl Punter Sahne Lechler drops a beautiful punt inside the Miami 5-yd line. On the next play LB James Harrison sacked Phins QB Chad Henne for the safety.

    1st Qtr.
    Steelers-5
    Phins-0

    The 2nd qtr is again all defense as both QBs struggled in getting their respective offenses in rythym.
    Steelers QB Kerry Collins hits HB Larry Johnson for a 5-yd TD pass. The pass fluttered out of Collins' hand as he was hit releasing the ball.
    The Dolphins recieve the kickoff and quickly move down the field and a Dan Carpenter 36-yd FG gets the Dolphins on the board as the final seconds of the 1st half tick off the clock.

    Halftime
    Steelers-12
    Phins-3

    The 3rd quarter was all Black & Yellow. A 1-yd TD run by Larry Johnson, an across-the-body 19-yd TD pass from Collins to WR Santonio Holmes & a 31-yd Jeff Reed FG cap the 3rd qtr. scoring. The Steelers front-7 were in Henne's face most of this quarter,eventually causing Henne to sit out for a short period due to injury. In relief,back-up QB Pat White threw two Ints. on his only 2 pass attempts.

    3rd qtr.
    Steelers-29
    Phins-3

    The 4th qtr. again was highlighted by the Steelers-D.In his first significant playing time since being drafted with the #24 overall selection, Steelers rookie DE Jackson Hailes made the most of his chance. Hailes tallies 3 sacks in this quarter as he used his lightning quick speed and acceleration to blow by the Phins right tackle. Steelers eventually notched 7 sacks for the game.
    Pittsburgh LB James Farrior caps the games scoring with an 11-yd Int. TD return of a Henne pass.

    Final
    Steelers-36
    Phins-3


    GG TRUDETHADUDE,

    My defense has been absolutely relentless the last two weeks and I am finally learning my personnel and the ins and outs of running the 3-4.
    Turning point in this game was a pick-6 by a Phins DB that was called back for clipping. After that it seemed nothing went right and everything went wrong for you.

    Good luck the rest of the year...(y)
