Blough led a second scoring drive towards the end of the fourth quarter that ended with a 10-yard scoring strike against rookie wide receiver Javon McKinley.
Detroit recovered an onside kick after the McKinley touchdown, and Blough orchestrated his third scoring drive of the second half that ended with a rewind from Craig Reynolds’ second preseason touchdown, that one tough 3-yard run.
The Steelers’ clock went from there.
Blough made 12 of his 17 attempts to pass for 143 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions for a pass rating of 115.6. He also climbed twice for 26 yards.
