Brian Hartline Giftwraps A Fumble For James Farrior, Ben Roethlisberger Hits Hines Ward For Steelers Lead, 10-6

After a fumble-tastic start to the game, the Steelers got a turnover of their own, as Dolphins receiver Brian Hartline bobbled the ball after a screen, dropping it right into the hands of Pittsburgh linebacker James Farrior. On the ensuing drive, tackle Flozell Adams was injured - looked like a slight ankle sprain - and Roethlisberger hit veteran receiver Hines Ward on a third-down hitch route. Ward took advantage of some poor Miami tackling downfield, bobbing and weaving after the catch on the way to the endzone. Steelers lead, 10-6.
