The Redskins starting offense remain in the game against the Steelers, deep into the first half. Leading the way is first-string quarterback Rex Grossman, who is tightening his grip on the job with a 13-for-17 performance through three drives.
The first effort ended with Shayne Graham shanking a 29-yard field goal. Drive No. 2 sputtered at the Pittsburgh 36, thanks to Ryan Mundy’s hit on Fred Davis.
The third time was a charm for Grossman, as he took the ‘Skins 82 yards on eight plays, capping the effort by bending down for a bad snap and then firing a back-foot, off-balance, eight-yard pass to Santana Moss, who was crossing the field right to left.
Grossman has generated 152 yards passing.
