With the final game of the 2016-17 college football season having been played, we are set to be without the game for 229 days.
But the end of college football marks the official start of NFL draft season.
The 2017 quarterback class features six underclassmen expected to be drafted within the top 100 picks, marking the first time more than four underclassmen have declared in any draft.
Aside from quarterbacks, the 2017 class offers tremendous depth at running back, pass-rusher, safety and cornerback.
The Steelers held a 20-6 edge at halftime and had almost doubled the Dolphins in total yards, 286-159. Other separating first-half factors in Pittsburgh’s favor were third-down efficiency (2 of 6 for Miami; 3 of 3 for Pittsburgh) and yards per play (6.4 for Miami; 9.5 for Pittsburgh). Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was 11 of 12 passing for 188 yards and two touchdowns, with his one incompletion being an interception. Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore, somewhat surprisingly, was impressive, too. He was 10 of 13 passing for 140 yards in the first half. On the ground, Pittsburgh RB Le’Veon Bell’s 17 first-half carries were good for 99 yards and a touchdown. Miami’s Jay Ajayi got only 20 yards on his nine carries.
Death, taxes and James Harrison making big plays for the Cheap Jerseys And Hats From China Steelers. Miami had driven into field-goal range in the last minute of the first half when Harrison came off the edge, sacked Matt Moore and forced a fumble. Pittsburgh took over on its own 13-yard line and took a knee to send the game to halftime.
Miami desperately needed a stop as Pittsburgh drove into field-goal range with under two minutes to play in the first half. The Dolphins got it when safety Michael Thomas picked Cheap Ireland Jerseys off a tipped Ben Roethlisberger pass and returned it 16 yards to the Miami 27-yard line. It was Roethlisberger’s second bad throw of the drive; a little too high for Antonio Brown.
