Redskins Steelers 3rd Quarter

Nov 4, 2008, 12:00 AM EDT

The Redskins have done little to nothing offensively. That’s the bad news. The good news is that they’re still in it.

14:50—Byron Leftwich is in at QB for the Steelers. Big Ben hit his hand on Golston’s helmet just before halftime. We have yet to receive an update in the press box.

12:28—His first pass is a doozie, 50 yards to Nate Washington for a first down at the 11.

The defensive struggle is over, at least on one side of the ball. That was pretty easy for the Steelers with their backup QB hitting on the bomb and then zipping one to Moore for a third-down conversion. The missed extra point could well come into play but, again, the Skins have to score.

As to Allen’s comment on Rogers’ hands, yes, but the offense needs to score. They now have one offensive touchdown in six quarters and counting.

8:50—A second-down sack kills the Redskins initial drive of the half before it even gets started. The sacks are starting to mount and the Skins just can’t keep operating from the hole.

7:16—The Steelers run a draw on second and 17 from about their own 40. They seem to be content with their 10-point lead. The way the Pittsburgh D is playing, I probably would be, too.

4:10—The Skins have a little something going on offense here after getting their initial third-down conversion of the game.

3:41—But it ends on Campbell’s first interception of the year. The ball went through the hands of Portis and into those of Townsend.

3:41—Zorn challenges that the ball was intercepted. It’s very close but it does look like Townsend had control just before Portis knocked it out.

1:31—Things are starting to look grim as the Skins waste a sack by Horton by giving up a third and 15 conversion. Another big third down coming up here with four to go.

0:10—The Steelers convert as the third quarter ends.
