Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger passed 50 times against the New England Patriots today. He completed 36 of those passes for 365 yards. He also tacked on two touchdowns as the Steelers scored 25 points in a win today. Big Ben was intercepted once.
Ben Roethlisberger is having maybe his best fantasy season yet, and he was only expected to improve upon it in Week 8, going up against arguably the league's worst pass defense in the New England Patriots. With deep threat Mike Wallace blooming into a legitimate No. 1 wide receiver, the health of Hines Ward and/or Health Miller hasn't made too much difference in Big Ben's performance from week-to-week.
