LANDOVER, Md. -- The Pittsburgh Steelers made a gutsy call by trying an onside kick on the opening kickoff.
The play didn't work, giving the Washington Redskins points.
Then Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had a pass tipped and intercepted, leading to more Redskins points.
In the end Pittsburgh's top-rated defense held Washington to field goals and the Redskins have a 6-0 lead less than four minutes into the game.
It's an awful start for the Steelers on the road, but not as bad as it could be considering the circumstances.
