Ben Roethlisberger throws decisive interception late in loss to Bengals

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Big Ben made a crucial mistake late in Monday night's game.

Ben Roethlisberger has had a tough time moving the Steelers' offense early in the 2013 season, and Monday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals was no exception.

Pittsburgh struggled to a 10-point offensive output on Monday Night Football in Week 2. Roethlisberger didn't get a ton of help from the players around him, but he also threw an interception that helped the Bengals secure the victory.

Roethlisberger has to shoulder some of the blame for this one.


Todd Haley has often taken the blame for the Steelers' offensive struggles, but Roethlisberger was off the mark often on Monday night. He finished the game with 251 passing yards, one touchdown and this crucial interception.

The Steelers are now 0-2 on the season and facing an uphill battle in the AFC North.
