7:49 p.m — End of First Quarter: Redskins 6, Steelers 0.
7:54 p.m. — Another potential turnover. Antonio Brown hauls in a catch and Josh Norman immediately strips the pigskin from him. The call on the field was changed from a fumble to incomplete, and the Redskins decide to challenge the call on the field.
8:00 p.m. — On fourth-and-1, Big Ben goes deep down field to Antonio Brown, who hauls in a beautiful catch while being draped by Bashaud Breeland and DeAngelo Hall.

8:06 p.m. — DeSean Jackson has been great early on. Three catches for 70 yards.
8:08 p.m. — INCYMI: Bashaud Breeland HAD IT. https://twitter.com/Cianaf/status/775484946777567232
8:11 p.m. — After Jackson's nice catch, the Redskins get back-to-back penalties and findthemselves on first-and-25.
8:11 p.m. — The Redskins go for it on fourth-and-6, and Chris Thompson hauls in a catch just short of the first down. Steelers take over.
8:15 p.m. — During the timeout, the Redskins honored a bevy of US Olymoic medalists. Kevin Durant was one of them. The crowd was mostly positive. Mostly.
Cool moment honoring gold medalists @ Skins game. Couple boos for Durant (which is stupid) but overwhelmingly cheers pic.twitter.com/fLQPMoogqO— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) September 13, 2016
8:23 p.m. — Another fourth down for the Steelers and the Big Ben once again throws the ball. Gutsy call. Eli Rogers picks up the first down and then some.
8:28 p.m. — Well that's one bizarre way to score a TD. Dashaun Phillips deflected Roethlisberger's pass, which then carromed off a Steelers reciver before landing in the arms of Eli Rogers.
8:31 p.m. — That will do it for the first half. Steelers lead 14-6.
8:51 p.m. — Jamison Crowder fumbles the ball after a catch, but Piere Garcon is there to pick it up and run with the ball.
8:53 p.m. — On the very next play, Kirk Cousins throws an interception, which Ryan Shazier returns for good yardage. That was Cousins' first interception in 253 attempts.
9:03 p.m. — The Redskins corners are getting torched. Greg Toller dove too early on a deep pass, and on the very next play Antonio Brown blew past Bashaud Breeland for a touchdown. And then this happened.
