Here are some notes at intermission:
Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill got off to a slow start. His first throw was nearly a pick-six by Steelers safety Troy Polamalu. Tannehill’s second dropback was a sack. Tannehill eventually warmed up and made some plays. He had a 48-yard scramble and threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to tight end Charles Clay in the second quarter.
Miami defensive end Cameron Wake made the biggest play of the half for the Dolphins. Wake got a sack and forced fumble on Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, which set up a short field and Miami’s touchdown by Clay.
Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace made his homecoming to Pittsburgh and has two receptions for 19 yards in the first half. Wallace was booed after each reception.
Steelers rookie tailback Le'Veon Bell is making his presence felt. He has 40 rushing yards on 10 carries.
This is a big second half for the Dolphins (6-6). They are trying to get above .500 for the first time since entering Week 7.
