Arizona couldn't manage a first down on the Cardinals opening possession, baffled by the Steelers zone blitz.
Pittsburgh defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau is winning the battle right now. He's basically forcing Arizona to go to their hot routes, and then Pittsburgh's defensive backs, knowing where Arizona is going to go with the ball, are jumping the routes.
Pittsburgh got the ball back and drove right down the field again on the legs of Willie Parker and the hands of tight end Heath Miller. Bruiser Gary Russell plunged in from a yard.
It's early in the second quarter and Pittsburgh's up 10-0. But that is more like a 20-0 lead with the way the Steelers play defense.
Never miss a local story.
Total yardage in first quarter -- Pittsburgh 140, Arizona 13.
Arizona has to make sure to keep running their offense and not try to get it back all at once.
