Kosar's record safe from Campbell


Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

LANDOVER, Md. -- Jason Campbell's quest to break Bernie Kosar's record for most consecutive passing attempts without an interception at the start of a season is over. Campbell came into Monday's game tied with David Garrard at 230. He took over sole possession of second place, but DeShea Townsend's interception of a tipped ball means that Kosar's record will stand.

Kosar began the 1991 season with 286 attempts without an interception.

By the way, it is unbelievable that the Redskins gave Santonio Holmes that much cushion on third-and-15. They just completely let the Steelers off the hook.

And that was a great throw by backup quarterback Byron Leftwich. For a guy that should be pretty rusty, he has looked solid in the second half. And Ben Roethlisberger has been his biggest cheerleader on the sideline.

The Redskins have been in a similar spot this season -- and won. They fell behind the Saints by two scores, but rallied to win in the fourth quarter. This Steelers defense is a lot better than the Saints' defense, though.

Think it's pretty safe we won't see Big Ben again. His helmet is nowhere in sight.
