Ben Roethlisberger Fantasy Stats: Good Game, But Not Good Enough For Steelers Win

Ben Roethlisberger looked like he had the Pittsburgh Steelers on their way to a win on Sunday Night against the Baltimore Ravens. Unfortunately Joe Flacco led a late comeback, leaving Roethlisberger's statistics relevant in the winning department only for his fantasy owners.

Roethlisberger completed 20 of his 37 passing attempts for 365 yards and a touchdown while adding an additional 61 yards by way of three scrambles out of the pocket.

Ben Roethlisberger, statistically speaking, has been having the best season of his career so far in 2011. He'd been averaging a shade under 300 yards per game, along with 18 touchdowns, heading into Sunday night's affair. The emergence of Mike Wallace as the league's pre-eminent deep threat, plus the continued development of Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders as complementary pieces, has given Roethlisberger more weapons than he's ever had before in his career.

In Week 9, Roethlisberger faced the only team that's been able to shut him down, the Baltimore Ravens and their 3rd-ranked pass defense. They certainly didn't shut him down, but at least they held him out of the win column.
