Panthers Vs. Steelers: Mendenhall Gives Steelers 17-0 Lead
Rashard Mendenhall has rushed seven times for 35 yards. More importantly, he added a touchdown to increase the Pittsburgh lead to 17 points. Pittsburgh needs Mendenhall to continue to have a good game not only to help put the Panthers away, but also to protect Ben Roethlisberger.
With such a large lead nearing halftime, expect to see Pittsburgh give the Panthers a steady dose of Rashard Mendenhall in the second half. At this point, the Steelers want to shorten the game and the best way to do that is to run it down Carolina's throat.
Pittsburgh needs to beat the Panthers convincingly to gain back their confidence after a heart-breaking loss to the New York Jets. They are going to need positive momentum going into the playoffs. The Steelers also desperately need to earn a first round bye to rest some of their starters that are hobbled by injuries, guys like Roethlisberger, Aaron Smith, and troy Polamalu.
