    Third-quarter summary: Packers 21, Steelers 17

    *After a touchback to open the second half, the Packers took over at their own 20 and couldn't pick up a first down due in large part to a holding penalty on Donald Lee and a false start on Greg Jennings. They punted, and Tom Crabtree was flagged for a face mask penalty on the Steelers' punt return. After committing just one penalty in the first half, the Packers committed three in their first four plays of the second half.
