And while you’re in the voting mood…

Vote for Ben for the FedEx NFL Air Player of the Week!

Ben completed 26 passes for 361 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Steelers 32-20 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Voting ends on Friday at 3:00 PM.

Ben was nominated in Week 5 after he threw for 228 yards and 5 touchdowns against the Titans, but Packers fans beat out Steelers fans in the voting making Aaron Rodgers the winner with a total of 365 yards and just 2 touchdowns! Come on Steelers fans, we can do better than that!

Vote for Ben here.


And…

Vote for the Ben to Mike Wallace “historic” touchdown as the GMC Never Say Never moment of Week 7!

From NFL.com:

Historic play lifts Steelers over Cardinals – Backed up at their own 5-yard line after a false-start penalty and up by only a touchdown over the Arizona Cardinals, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers knew history wasn’t on their side. But they were happy that Wallace was. Roethlisberger hit a sprinting Wallace, who took the ball 95 yards for a touchdown and the longest reception in Steelers history. The Steelers never relinquished their advantage.
