NFL: Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger Throws 200th TD Pass

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw his 200th career touchdown pass in a 55-31 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw his 200th career touchdown pass in a 55-31 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday.

Roethlisberger is the second quarterback in team history to pull of the feat, per Sports Illustrated. The historic moment came with 3:51 left in the second quarter when he connected with Antonio Brown pull Pittsburgh to within 17-10. 

Roethlisberger finished the game with 400 yards and four touchdown passes and two interceptions. He was also sacked five times. Jerricho Cotchery accounted for three receptions from his quarterback, who padded his career total to 203 at game's end.

In spite of Roethlisberger's individual achievement, the Steelers earned the ire of head coach Mike Tomlin after the loss to the Patriots. More than finishing 2-6 overall through Week 9 of the regular season, Pittsburgh allowed 55 points and 610 yards -- the most ever in team history, per Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Bouchette reported on Nov. 3 that Tomlin "threatened more jobs" after the disappointment. The Steelers head coach said they have to go back to the drawing board.

"You re-evaluate everything. You have to after a performance like that and we will. It doesn't necessarily mean we will change or change for the sake of changing, but we will look at every aspect of what we are doing and who we are doing it with because we can't have performances like that.

"We couldn't stop them. We didn't stop the run. We didn't stop the pass." 

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who had a sub-par October, finished 23-for-33 with 432 yards and four touchdowns of his own to offset Roethlisberger's performance. 

Pittsburgh managed to tie things up at 24 apiece in the third quarter on two successive touchdown receptions from Cotchery. However, New England put the game away for good on a Stephen Gotskowski field goal and touchdowns from Aaron Dobson and Stevan Ridley. 

Since the third-quarter deadlock, the Patriots outscored the Steelers 31-7. 

Roethlisberger concluded any team facing Tom Brady just cannot afford to make too many mistakes. For the game, they had three -- his two interceptions and a lost fumble. In contrast, the Patriots had just one turnover. 

He said,"We're all angry and disappointed. Brady is good, so you know that your mistakes have to be limited." 

With the win, New England improved to 7-2 while Pittsburgh fell to 2-6.

Week 4 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em: Final Review of Most Difficult Fantasy Matchups

Sep 28 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It's amazing to think about how much time fantasy football owners spend on a weekly basis trying to make a few lineup decisions. For good reason, of course. Those borderline choices often end up being the difference between winning and losing. While the most important factors are always recent performance and the matchup, there's a certain amount of feel to it, as well. Things never go exactly according to plan, so sometimes it pays off to go against the grain if you th ...

Can the Eagles become the first team to four wins this season? Will the Jaguars, Raiders or Buccaneers pick up their first win? SB Nation's expert panel weighs in on those games and the rest of the Week 4 action.

With limited matchups to take advantage of, here are a few quarterbacks that could come up big for you in Week 3. Two weeks into the season and we're already left to choose from Peyton Manning, the second coming of Peyton Manning, a rookie, two journeymen, three veterans that might not be good, two legends that are still somewhere in the offseason, a giant beard, a hapless cog running a transcendent system, a backup that should have ...

Nike Suspends Endorsement Contract With Adrian Peterson

Sep 17 2014 11:35am CDT | Source: The Big Lead

Nike has suspended its endorsement contract with Adrian Peterson. “Nike in no way condones child abuse or domestic violence of any kind and has shared our concerns with the NFL,” the brand said in its release. Noting that suspension is different than termination, it’s a little bit of an about-face for Nike, which often sticks behind athletes far longer in these processes. As Darren Rovell reported, the brand didn’t end its relationship with Oscar Pistorius or R ...

NFL Predictions Week 2: Last-Minute Picks and Advice for Sunday's Schedule

Sep 14 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

When we start to analyze Week 2 of the NFL schedule, it is important to ask how much weight we should put into Week 1 results. After all, the temptation is there to simply fall back on what we saw in the openers and assume that is a valid representation of what will happen throughout the year. It’s still just a one-game sample size, though. For example, look at the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ben Roethlisberge ...
