Redskins vs. Steelers score: Steelers lead, 10-0, after 1 quarter

The Pittsburgh Steelers scored on both of their first-quarter possessions to lead the Washington Redskins, 10-0, after one quarter at Heinz Field.

Washington has the ball in deep in Pittsburgh territory to begin the second quarter.

The Steelers opened the scoring on their first drive when they elected to go for it on 4-and-goal from the 1-yard-line and converted. Ben Roethlisberger faked a hand-off and rolled out right before hitting Leonard Pope for the game's first touchdown.

Shaun Suisham split the uprights for a 48-yard field goal on the Steelers' second drive to extend the lead to 10-0.

The Steelers are 3-3 after beating the Cincinnati Bengals a week ago and not lost lost a home game yet this season. The Redskins come into Week 8 with a 3-4 record on the year. They are looking to bounce back from last week's late loss to the New York Giants.
