PITTSBURGH, PA —
It was over when...
With 4 minutes remaining in the 4th quarter and leading 14-3, Jacquizz Rodgers converted a 3rd down and ran 24 yards to set up a field goal to bury the Falcons 17-3. However in the last minute Matt Ryan threw an interception to William Gay who returned it for a touchdown.
Lawrence Timmons swarmed the ball carrier all day carrying out a high level of production in recording 10 tackles, when needed he also blitzed heavily and sacked the Quarterback 4 times.
The Pittsburgh Steelers could only manage 80 total yards going into halftime, 28 rushing and were 0 for 6 on third downs, both teams had uner 25% converted on the day. Another key factor was turnovers as the Falcons commited 4. 3 were by 2011 MVP Matt Ryan by throwing the football.
Falcons Linebacker Curtis Lofton led the game with 12 tackles, 1 sack and an interception but his efforts were by nothing as the Steelers forced the Falcons into a shakey game. William Gay restricted Roddy White to 4 receptions for 38 yards and took the ball away twice.
The 5-0 Pittsburgh Steelers will grind it out against hated rivals the 3-2 New England Patriots... the 2-3 Atlanta Falcons face off against the 4-1 Cleveland Browns
