Jacksonville vs. Steelers: Instant Analysis, second quarter

Offense:  The quarter seemed decent enough ~ ten points ~ but a missed opportunity to score a touchdown following Rashard Mendenhall's 68-yard scamper left us feeling less than satisfied, and less in control of the game, than should be the case.

Defense:  A horrible performance on one drive allowed Jacksonville to get to within hailing distance of the Steelers.  The second half of the second half was good enough ~ and LaMarr Woodley is playing well ~ but here's hoping that this unit comes out breathing fire in the second half.

Special teams:  Shaun Suisham has already missed too many field goals this season.  Kevin Colbert may want to begin flipping idly through his rolodex of kicker's phone numbers.  Also, Antonio Brown's three punt returns for -4 yards total leaves us feeling less than satisfied.
