He works. He works hard. He doesn’t make a lot of mistakes, and if he does make a mistake, he doesn’t make it twice. He’s talented. He has some God-given abilities not many people in this world have. I am really proud of the way he is playing right now.” — Ben, on Chase Claypool.

The Steelers, who built a 17-point lead in the third quarter but didn’t seal it until Claypool’s fourth touchdown with 2:39 left, is 4-0 for the first time since 1979.
“It’s always important to get out early because you don’t know what the season holds. There is a lot of football ahead of us. We have to continue to play football and be there for each other.” — Ben.
Ben finished 27 of 34 for 239 yards and three touchdowns with a passer rating of 125.4. In four games, he has thrown 10 touchdowns and just one interception.
Chase Claypool became the fourth NFL rookie since the 1970 merger to have two receiving touchdowns and a rushing touchdown in the same game, and is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week!
