Pittsburgh, looking to bounce back after its season-opening loss to the
Broncos, controlled the ball for 36 1/2 minutes, icing the game with a 14-

Isaac Redman capped the trek and sealed the outcome with a two-yard touchdown
run, as the Steelers (1-1) rolled to their 10th straight win in home openers.
