Baltimore vs. Steelers: Instant Analysis, second quarter

Third down conversions by Baltimore -- 7 for 11 in the first half -- continue to be a huge difference in the game.  While the Steelers' defense has limited the damage to four field goal attempts, they have to find a way to get off the field.  Also, missed opportunities -- two dropped interceptions one forced fumble -- are not helping matters.

As for the offense, missed opportunities are the entire story.  Unable to sustain drives (11:47 in time of possession in the first half), the defense is spending far too much time of the field.
