2004 Steelers 24 at Browns 10

Unfazed by Gerard Warren's pregame threats (or anything Cleveland's defense throws at him), Roethlisberger becomes the first rookie quarterback to begin 7-0.

During pregame warmups, Joey Porter punches Browns running back William Green, bloodying his lower lip during their fight. Both are ejected before the opening kickoff. In Porter's place, unknown LB James Harrison gets his first NFL start, records his first NFL sack and leads the team in tackles.

Bettis, starting in place of the injured Duce Staley, gains 103 yards on 29 carries and scores 2 TDs. Ben isn't spectacular, but is very efficient. Roethlisberger also rushes for 41 yards as he smartly avoids pressure by running the few times the Browns are able to apply any pressure.

Meanwhile, Browns QB Jeff Garcia is under siege almost every time he drops back, going only 7 for 16 for 110 yards while being sacked 4 times and throwing an interception.
