The Pittsburgh Steelers have jumped out to an early lead an are now up by a score of 7-0 against the Arizona Cardinals in the first quarter.
Ryan Clark intercepted Kevin Kolb in the Cardinals’ first possession, and the Steelers started their first drive at the Arizona 31 yard line. Rashard Mendenhall lost five yards’ on the Steelers’ first play from scrimmage, but Ben Roethlisberger found Antonio Brown for a 16-yard completion on second down. A face mask penalty against the Cardinals on the next play got the Steelers into the red zone. Two plays later, Roethlisberger tossed a touchdown pass to Heath Miller.
The Cardinals just punted the ball away on their second possession. So far, so good for the Steelers. It would be nice to see them build a big lead here in the first half.
