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.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The Indianapolis Colts weren’t going to have a hangover from last week’s defeat. Andrew Luck wouldn’t allow it.

Klay Thompson Dunked on Robin Lopez, Followed Career-High With Clutch Go-Ahead Basket Against the Blazers

Nov 3 2014 10:13am CST | Source: The Big Lead

Klay Thompson is having a monster start to the season. He has kicked off the fourth year of his career by averaging 29.7 points a game while shooting .537 from the field and .455 from three. Obviously, it’s a little early in the season (Ben Roethlisberger threw more touchdowns on Sunday than the Warriors have played games this season. Think about that!), but Thompson is already displaying the incredible awesomeness that convin ...
