49ers Vs. Steelers Score Update: Vernon Davis Helps 49ers To 13-3 Lead In Fourth Quarter [VIDEO]

The San Francisco 49ers are keeping the pressure on Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers in their Monday Night Football matchup. This highly-anticipated game has been plagued by power outages that have delayed play, but the 49ers have maintained their focus and are playing like a team possessed.

The 49ers defense has kept the less-than-full-strength Roethlisberger off-balance all night, rarely letting up on the pressure. While both teams had difficulty finding the end zone in the first half, Alex Smith and Vernon Davis led the 49ers on a brilliant drive late in the third quarter. They helped the 49ers take the ball 71 yards down the field with five plays, ending when Smith hooked up with Davis in the end zone to give the Niners a 13-3 lead.

The Steelers would get into field goal range at the end of the quarter but shanked the attempt wide left.
