Week 3 Vs Raiders

Ben Roethlisberger had a great game throwing for 384 yards and 4 touchdowns.   However, the defense gave up a ten point lead in the 4th quarter as the Steelers lost to the Oakland Raiders 34 to 31.      The offensive line allowed one sack, but the running game was ineffective to take the pressure off of Ben.    The defense  had only one turnover and sack, plus didn’t get to Carson Palmer late in the game.   Darren McFadden had 113 yards rushing and a touchdown against the Steelers defense.   The Raiders had great kick returns against the special teams, and they have to tighten up on the coverage teams.     The Steelers are 1 and 2 going into the bye week and the return of James Harrison, Troy Polamalu and Rashard Mendenhall from injuries should help them out against the Philadelphia Eagles on October 7th at Heinz Field.
