Dolphins vs Steelers 1st Quarter Recap: Pittsburgh leads 7-3

Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

Keep up with all of our Miami Dolphins coverage

The Miami Dolphins and Pittsburgh Steelers have reached the end of the first quarter. The Steelers have taken a 7-3 lead in the snow. Stay right here to join the discussion for the second period.

The Miami Dolphins and Pittsburgh Steelers have completed the first 15-minutes of their snowy Week 14 meeting.

The game started exactly how a snow game would start, with both teams trying to find their footing, and no one really able to do much.  The Dolphins defense sacked Ben Roethlisberger on the second play of the game, then the Steelers defense sacked Ryan Tannehill.  After trading punts, the Steelers got the ball back, and started pushing Miami's defense around.

The Steelers took the next possession 74-yards on 12-plays, nine of which were running plays, to score on a 5-yard pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Emmanuel Sanders.

Miami responded with a drive back down the field, highlighted by a 48-yard run from Ryan Tannehill on a read-option keeper.  However, the drive would stall and Miami would settle for a 30-yard field goal from Caleb Sturgis.

As usual, keep pictures to a minimum, and appropriate, in a live thread. I will remove pictures that are inappropriate and they can lead to warnings and/or bannings.

Do not request or post links to illegal internet streams of the game (instant temporary ban if you do).

Overflow threads will be posted as needed.

GO DOLPHINS!!!!!!!
