Steelers 49ers Score
December 20, 2011 by staff
Steelers 49ers Score, Alex Smith wore a blue work shirt to Candlestick Park on Monday, the type of apparel you might see from your auto mechanic. It had a white patch on the chest, with his first name stitched inside in red. This was all part of a definitive statement.
The 49ers went to work and, in fact, brought their metal lunch pails, hard hats and all other figurative symbols of blue-collar grunt for the much-anticipated matchup against the traditionally scrappy Pittsburgh Steelers.
And work they did. On a night when the lights went out at The Stick – twice, in fact – the 49ers short-circuited the Steelers and scored a 20-3 gut-check victory.
A gimpy Ben Roethlisberger? No matter. The 49ers defense, playing without injured All-Pro linebacker Patrick Willis, showed no mercy for the visiting quarterback who threw for 330 yards but limped, grimaced, winced and hobbled on a left foot tenderized by a high ankle sprain suffered 11 days earlier.
San Francisco intercepted Roethlisberger three times and forced him into another turnover with a fumble. They converted three of the turnovers into 13 points. Sacked Big Ben three times, too.
“Defense played lights out,” Smith said, igniting laughter during his post-game press conference. “No pun intended.”
