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.

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 wi ...

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 Roethlisberger and company looked like a dominant force in the first ha ...

The QB Nonsense Index: Can Kaepernick or Manziel Unseat Romo as Nonsense King?

Sep 4 2014 6:02am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

NFL quarterbacks exist to serve three purposes, in ascending order of importance: 3. Throw accurate passes and take charge of the huddle;  2. Lead their teams to Super Bowl victories; and 1. Generate a never-ending supply of melodramatic and ridiculous storylines like characters in the world’s longest-running Spanish-language telenovela. Crisp passes and Super Bowl rings are great, but the soap opera—the nonsense—drives several m ...

In his lolling north Alabama accent, the word “ours” makes Philip Rivers sound like a pirate. Fresh from an August practice and leaning against a wall outside Chargers Park, he’s using it a lot. “I feel like it’s ars,” he says. “I feel like it’s ar offense.” Rivers is talking about the system that head coach Mike McCoy brought with him upon arriving in San Diego last season. When McCoy and Ken Whisenhunt, then San Diego’s offensive ...
