Redskins Top Steelers 16-7

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.

WVU FedEx Football Game Irks Morgantown Merchants

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Word that one of West Virginia's 2012 football games will be played at FedEx Field isn't sitting well with some Morgantown businesses that bank on Mountaineer fans.

On game days, Milan Puskar Stadium's 60,000 seats effectively double the city's population. Fans pack bars, restaurants and hotels.

Some merchants fear the James Madison matchup is the start of a trend that will cost the home town money.

They're meeting Monday with WVU to discuss it and to consider an economic-impact study.

Athletic Director Oliver Luck understands the concerns, but says the FedEx deal is good business, too: WVU will make $2.3 million -- $500,000 more than at home.

But Luck says it won't become an annual event. WVU probably won't play at neutral venues more than once every five years.
