Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne has hung in there against the vaunted Steelers pass rush. The Steelers haven't recorded a sack. Henne has looked a little jumpy at times, but he's 12 of 20 for 153 yards and one touchdown with no interceptions.
Dolphins cornerback Jason Allen was victimized on a 53-yard Ben Roethlisberger strike to Mike Wallace in the second quarter. Allen gave Wallace a nice cushion, yet still got scorched by Wallace, who simply flashed past for a touchdown.
There's been some bad tackling by both teams. Steelers receiver Hines Ward ducked and dodged his way into the end zone from 21 yards out, and Dolphins receiver Davone Bess juked past a couple Steelers defenders for a 26-yard score to pull the Dolphins within a point.
Here's a quirky stat: Thanks to the Steelers fumbling the opening kickoff and going three and out on their first possession, the Dolphins scored six points on 7 total yards in the first quarter. The Dolphins went three-and-out field goal, three-and-out field goal and then three-and-out punt.
That first-quarter punt was an impressive example of how to flip the field. With Miami on its 14-yard line, Brandon Fields crushed a 66-yarder. Antwaan Randle-El lost a yard on the return, plus a holding penalty put Pittsburgh on its 10-yard line.
