The third quarter of the Miami Dolphins at Pittsburgh Steelers contest is complete, with Miami leading 24-21.

The half started with Miami receiving the kick off and moving down the field.  The nine-play, 80-yard drive ended with a four yard Daniel Thomas walk into the endzone, extending Miami's lead to 17-7.

The Steelers, however, answered with a 4-play, 83-yard touchdown drive of their own.  Antonio Brown capped the drive with a 43-yard catch and run.  Then intercepted Ryan Tannehill for a touchdown from Troy Polamalu, giving the Steelers a 21-17 lead.

Miami then drive back down the field, leading to a Ryan Tannehill touchdown pass to Brian Hartline, giving Miami a 24-21 lead.  The play was originally called a incomplete pass, but Joe Philbin challenged the ruling, which was then overturned.  The Dolphins are now six-for-six on challenges this year.

The Steelers are currently driving with the ball at the Miami 16.
