Miami's D stealing the show

By Heather Dinich

PITTSBURGH -- Miami's defense is in full-blown chest-thumping, hand-raising, Hurricane mode tonight.

Linebacker Sean Spence is leading the way, and Miami is really controlling the line of scrimmage and pushing its way into Pitt's backfield.

After three quarters, the Panthers have been held to six first downs and 2-of-12 third-down conversions. Miami has made four sacks. Regardless of what the offense has or hasn't done, this looks like a championship defense.
