Steelers holding insurmountable lead?


Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

LANDOVER, Md. -- The Redskins scored their six points off a failed onsides kick attempt and a Ben Roethlisberger interception. It certainly wasn't anything the offense accomplished. The Redskins are 0-for-8 on third downs. They've moved the ball with Clinton Portis at times, but they can't sustain anything. Jason Campbell hasn't been as efficient as usual. From my vantage point, he seems to be guiding the ball a little instead of cutting loose.

I think it's important for the Redskins to stick with the running game, but Portis' right knee appears to be banged up. Veteran Shaun Alexander is the backup, but he doesn't pose much of a threat against this Steelers defense. I'm not sure why the Redskins aren't running the ball to the left side. Maybe it's out of respect for linebacker James Harrison, who lines up on the right side.
