GREEN BAY–The Packers trailed the Steelers, 31-21, after three quarters of play and a lot of frenzied action late in the quarter.

The Steelers opened the second half with a fake-punt pass that gained 30 yards and tacked on 15 yards for a roughing-the-passer penalty. It put the ball on the Packers 13-yard line. Ben Roethlisberger then ran out of the pocket and up the middle for 13 yards and a touchdown. The Steelers led, 17-14, with 11:51 to play in the third quarter.

It was announced that linebacker Clay Matthews was out for the remainder of the game due to a thumb injury he sustained late in the second quarter when Matthews sacked Roethlisberger.

Eddie Lacy set a Packers rookie rushing record, going past John Brockington.

A Tim Masthay punt was dead at the 2-yard line and one play later the Packers recovered a Le’Veon Bell fumble at the Steelers 3-yard line. Bell was initially ruled down and Packers Coach Mike McCarthy challenged the ruling and it was reversed.

The Steelers held and forced a Mason Crosby field goal and it was blocked by the Steelers, but the Steelers were flagged for illegal batting and the Packers got a new set of downs at the Steelers 2-yard line. Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin then threw a challenge flag but was denied a challenge. Eddie Lacy scored on the next play and the Packers had a 21-17 lead with 5:19 to play in the third quarter.

Pittsburgh immediately roared back on the strength of a 25-yard run by Bell, who is over 100 yards rushing in the game.

Roethlisberger completed a 7-yard pass to Jonathan Dwyer for a first down at the Packers 11-yard line, and one play later Roethlisberger threw to Matt Spaeth for a touchdown. The Steelers led, 24-21, with 1:55 to play in the third quarter. The drive went 68 yards in six plays.

On the Packers’ next play, Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen returned an interception 41 yards for a touchdown. The Steelers led, 31-21, with 1:37 to play.

The quarter ended with the Packers in possession of the ball following an A.J. Hawk interception.
