From Nick Birdsong at the Sporting News this morning:
The Steelers’ offense is good, really good, and the only figures you need to see from their preseason opener against the Jaguars on Friday are the ones put up by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Big Ben finished 3 for 3 for 60 yards, including a 45-yard touchdown pass to second-year wide receiver Martavis Bryant.
Roethlisberger only played one series, but he did enough to show that the unit, which also features wide receiver Antonio Brown and running back Le’Veon Bell, is more than capable of averaging 30 points a game like it did last season.

From the Steelers official website:
QB Ben Roethlisberger:
(On his first drive) “As long as you score, it’s feels pretty good. We had the two-point try and scored points. To me that’s the most important thing. As a leader of this offense, you want those guys to be selfless like ‘even if I don’t catch a ball, it doesn’t matter as long as we win.’ I think we have that in this group. We have to keep getting everybody the ball and if they don’t get it, we won’t win football games.”
