Tennessee vs. Steelers: Instant Analysis, third quarter

Oh boy.

A bad first offensive series, followed by an impressive defensive series and offensive series (for a touchdown), followed by a lousy defensive series, and a then a special teams lapse, and then a great defensive play.

Up-and-down in a way that has us feeling that the quarter was a microcosm of the season thus far.

One player distinguishing themselves is the recently returned Max Starks.  The Steelers radio announcer Craig Wolfley has been grading Mr. Starks on every play, and on 45 offensive plays Mr. Wolfley had the Steelers' left tackle down for 42 "plus" plays (i.e. good) and three "minus" plays (i.e. bad).

Heading to the fourth quarter the feeling here is that the Black & Gold are one touchdown away from closing this game out.
