“What a crazy game! We will take a win any way we can get it. I am proud of the way the guys fought all the way until the end.” — Ben, on the field with Lisa Salter post-game.
From Bob Labriola, Steelers.com: Ben is Digest Player of the Week
Looking for their first win of the season, the Steelers figured to need a big night from their offense, which automatically means they were going to need a big night from their quarterback.
And Ben Roethlisberger delivered. He completed 30-of-38 for 353 yards, with three touchdowns, one interception, and a rating of 120.7. Roethlisberger also ran one quarterback sneak for 2 yards and another first down in the Steelers 30-27 win over Tampa Bay. Roethlisberger is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.
