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.

What's Behind Markus Wheaton's Slow Start to 2014 Season?

Oct 13 2014 9:16pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

You can’t swing a Terrible Towel without whacking into a player on the Pittsburgh Steelers who has underperformed so far this season. It seems that every week a new player lets this team down on some level. After six games there are still spots on this roster that are in question. One area of particular concern is wide receiver. Pittsburgh is still searching for that player who can line up opposite Antonio Brown and be consistent. Second-year ...

Mike Tanier's Monday Morning Hangover: Jay Cutler Is the New Herschel Walker

This could have been a Statement Sunday, a day on which the NFL's hot-and-cold-running 3-2 teams emphatically defeated opponents and proved that they belong in the Super Bowl conversation. But instead we got a bunch of close games, last-minute comebacks, and a tie.  This could have been a Separation Sunday, a day on which the defending powerhouses won easily and pulled away from the league's second-tier contenders. Instead, we watched ...

NFL Pick$ Against The Spread That Don’t Suck: Week 6

Every week, I’ll pick NFL games against the spread and track my results. Last year went surprisingly well, but I promise I’ll mock my inevitable failures. IMPORTANT: I am not an “expert,” but my analysis is still worth reading. I’m not an expert because nobody is an expert, and if someone calls himself an expert, he’s probably not an expert.

Mike Tomlin Not Living Up to 'Standard' for Pittsburgh Steelers

Sep 30 2014 8:36pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The standard is the standard. It’s a phrase oft-repeated by Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. It’s one of many catchphrases or “Tomlinisms” the eighth-year coach orates in his weekly press conferences and postgame interviews. That standard for football in Pittsburgh has never been clearly defined by Tomlin himself. As is the case with many Tomlinisms (“iron sharpens iron” is my personal favorite), the quotes are more coach speak than anything else. Howeve ...

Full Pittsburgh Steelers Awards at the Quarter Mark of the 2014 NFL Season

Sep 29 2014 8:59pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

A quarter of the season is over for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and while the 2-2 record may be a disappointment, not all is bad for Mike Tomlin’s team. The offensive trio of Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell provides the offense with three elite weapons while the defense will have to survive as Jarvis Jones, Ryan Shazier and Ike Taylor all sit with injuries. There is plenty of season left to play, but the Steelers need th ...

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 ...
