Ben Roethlisberger went 22-for-40 passing for 243 yards, two touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Denver Broncos. He completed passes to eight different receivers, including touchdowns to Heath Miller and Mike Wallace. He also threw a game-sealing pick-six to cornerback Tracy Porter in the fourth quarter.
Analysis: Roethlisberger looked solid despite one very costly mistake late in the game. Of course, no one doubts that he is a capable quarterback. The larger concern remains that the nature of the Steelers' offense prevents him from being an elite fantasy option in standard leagues. Roethlisberger's numbers likely didn't hurt teams too badly under normal scoring rules. His performance also won't win many head-to-head fantasy matchups, either.
