PITTSBURGH -- The Steelers are traditionally not the fastest starting team in the NFL. But they are off to a lightning-quick start Sunday against the New York Giants.

Pittsburgh tailback Mewelde Moore scored on a 32-yard touchdown run to give the Steelers a 7-0 lead following their first offensive possession. The drive was a swift four plays for 60 yards and took only 1:27 off the clock.

It was set up by a three-and-out from the defense that gave Pittsburgh's offense solid field position. Heinz Field already is riled up.
