Browns Vs. Steelers Score: McCoy, Roethlisberger Impressive Early, Steelers Lead 7-3

Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy was impressive on the team's opening possession against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the Browns were forced to settle for a field goal after an apparent touchdown run by McCoy was overturned on review.

McCoy was 4-4 for 69 yards to start the game, including long completions to tight end Evan Moore and Josh Cribbs.  It was a 3rd and goal from inside the one after the reversal, however, that left a sour taste in the Browns mouth.  McCoy handed off to running back Peyton Hillis but had no shot as the entire left side of the Browns offensive line was pushed 3 yards into the backfield.

After holding the Browns to a field goal, the Steelers wen on an impressive drive of their own, going 73 yards in five plays before Ben Roethlisberger hit Jerricho Cotchery on an 11-yard touchdown pass.  Like McCoy, Roethlisberger was perfect on his first drive, going 3-3 for 45 yards.
