Mewelde Moore turned in one of the biggest plays Sunday for the Steelers when he scooted 29 yards after catching a swing pass late in the fourth quarter. Moore's longest gain of the season helped set up Jeff Reed's game-winning field goal.
Highlights for Steelers, running backs, however, were few and far between in their 23-22 win against the Miami Dolphins. The Steelers managed just a season-low 58 yards on 27 carries. Moore saw his most extensive action of the season as he spelled starter Rashard Mendenhall, as planned, on the Steelers' third series. Coach Mike Tomlin said Moore took Mendenhall's place to lighten the latter's workload. Mendenhall managed just 37 yards on 15 carries.
"We weren't running the ball very effectively. It didn't matter who was running," Tomlin said. "We've got to get better there."
