The Bills got on the board first after their defense set them up with great field position. Free safety Jairus Byrd intercepted Ben Roethlisberger and returned it 57-yards to the Steelers 29-yard line. The Bills moved the ball down to the one-yard line, but the defense kept them out of the end zone. Kicker Dan Carpenter hit a 20-yard field goal, capping a nine-play, 28-yard drive for a 3-0 Bills lead.
The Steelers offense was stopped on their next two drives of the first quarter, going three-and-out on both possessions.
End of First Quarter: Steelers 0, Bills 3
