Bumbling Pats making it easy for Steelers
The score was 10-10 at halftime. The Steelers drove their first possession close enough for a field goal. Then the Patriots started dribbling the ball like Manute Bol.
Slater didn't return for the next kickoff. Kevin Faulk was inserted, and he brought it out to the Patriots' 29-yard line.
The Patriots held them to a field goal, but the Steelers are ahead 23-10 with 2:41 left in the third quarter, and the Patriots have run only five plays.
