Ben Roethlisberger, Quarterback
Ben Roethlisberger completed 30 of 38 passes for 353 yards and three touchdowns against just one interception on Monday night. He did most of that work in the first half before the Steelers went to more of a ground game.
Roethlisberger also performed well against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2, completing 39 of 60 passes for 452 yards. He also had three TDs and no interceptions against the Chiefs, but the Steelers only totaled 33 rushing yards in the 42-37 loss.
Pittsburgh didn’t put up eye-popping rushing stats during Monday’s contest either, but it did enough to keep the Buccaneers honest. As a result, Roethlisberger’s outstanding performance didn’t go to waste this time.
After a shaky performance in the opener, Roethlisberger seems to have found his way over the past two weeks. And that’s a problem for opposing defenses because he’s a sensational signal caller when he’s at the top of his game.
