And Big Ben is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week:

122015Against the NFL’s best defense, Roethlisberger passed for 380 yards and 3 TDs.

The comeback was fashioned largely on the talents of his right arm, and then just when it seemed as though the Steelers were about to ice their biggest comeback victory since Oct. 5, 1997 in Baltimore against the Ravens, that same right arm pumped life into a Broncos offense that had been on life support through the whole second half with an ill-advised interception. But football being the ultimate team sport, the defense rose up and turned the ball back over on downs.

And then when a situation arose when the Steelers were presented with a chance to clinch the victory, his right arm delivered one last play for his team.

Ben Roethlisberger finished 40-of-55 for 380 yards, with three touchdowns, two interceptions, and a rating of 94.5, and he was the offense on a day when the Steelers rushed for only 26 yards before kneel-down time. Roethlisberger’s three touchdown passes came in a second half that had the Steelers erase a 27-13 halftime deficit, and then on a third-and-5 from the Pittsburgh 46-yard line with 90 seconds left Ben Roethlisberger delivered the dagger with a perfectly thrown sideline pass to Antonio Brown for 8 yards and the first down that sent the Steelers into victory formation on the way to a 34-27 win over the Denver Broncos.

Roethlisberger is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.
