LANDOVER, Md. (AP) -- Rex Grossman completed 19 of 26 passes for 207 yards and a touchdown to help the Washington Redskins beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 16-7 on Friday night in the preseason opener for both teams.
Hoping to gain over early edge over an injured John Beck for the starting job, Grossman hit Santana Moss for an 8-yard score in the second quarter -- although the drive came against Pittsburgh's second-string defense.
Beck did not play. He sat out after tweaking his groin in practice last week.
While the Redskins' starters played the entire first half, Pittsburgh's first-stringers were done for the game by the end of the first quarter. Backup Isaac Redman had a 22-yard touchdown run for the Steelers.
