Ben Roethlisberger's first of the 2012 regular season was also his worst. He completed just 22 of 40 passes against the Broncos and threw an interception late in the fourth that cornerback Tracy Porter returned for what would be the game-clinching touchdown. After entering the season with high hopes to improve on last year's wild card playoff exit, and a need to counter Rashard Mendenhall's absence for the first few games, the Steelers were hoping to lean on Reothlisberger's experience and leadership to guide them through.

Steelers defense, Roethlisberger strong at home again

Dink & Dunk Steelers Offense? Why Not Call It The Upright Offense Instead?

Many like to call the new offense of the Pittsburgh Steelers a "dink and dunk" one, but perhaps a better name for it would be an "upright" offense. Upright because that is exactly what quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been for a good part of this season. Through the first 7 games of the season Roethlisberger has been sacked only 13 times. He is on pace to be...
