The game was scoreless, 7-7…

Super Bowl champs Steelers get winning start

The opening game of the new NFL season was a grueling physical battle and stood scoreless at halftime after normally reliable Titans kicker Rob Bironas missed one field goal and had another blocked.

Was anyone from Reuters really at the game?? Or perhaps they had a few too many Iron City Beers. :)

Your story says the game stood scoreless at halftime. Unless I was in a stupor here in Baghdad, those amazing drives you describe as happening in the third quarter actually happened at the end of the second quarter. The score at halftime was 7 – 7.

Tell your reporter we expect his reporting of the NFL to improve by the time the Steelers visit Miami on 7 February.  As for your editor…no one by the name of Ian should be editing an article on the NFL…stick to F1 and the Premier League. :)
