Steelers Vs. Cardinals: Pittsburgh Leads Arizona 7-0 After First Quarter

The Pittsburgh Steelers have jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the desert against the Arizona Cardinals, courtesy of a Ben Roethlisberger to Heath Miller 12 yard touchdown pass.

The first quarter was an evenly matched affair, with the Steelers and Cardinals controlling the ball for roughly seven and a half minutes. Pittsburgh has 74 yards of total offense, Arizona 78 yards.

The biggest difference int he game so far is Kevin Kolb's interception, which set up the Steelers scoring drive. Ryan Clark picked off the Cardinals' quarterback, setting Pittsburgh up nicely at Arizona's 31 yard line. Five plays later, Big Ben found Miller and the Steelers had a seven point lead.

Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio Brown has already been targeted three times, catching all three balls for 46 yards.
