-B- Ben Roethlisberger continues to quietly play the best football of his career. Roethlisberger threw two more touchdown passes yesterday, giving him 16 through the first half of the year. His numbers match up pretty well to 2007, the best season of his career. Roethlisberger set the franchise record with 32 touchdown passes that year. He's completing over 67% of his passes this year, a number that would also be a career high. -B- Here are five players who really stood out as difference makers yesterday: Mike Adams, Ryan Clark, Keenan Lewis, Emmanuel Sanders, Drew Butler. -B- Really neat to see a bunch of those guys step up with injuries to Antonio Brown, Rahsard Mendenhall and Jonathan Dwyer. I was worried after Brown exited the game with an ankle injury, but Sanders and Mike Wallace sprung to life. -B- LaMarr Woodley and James Harrison have both fought off numerious injuries this year and yesterday was really the first game that they've made in impact in the pass rush. The Steelers still need more production from the duo, though, as they've only totaled 4.0 sacks combined. -B- Ike Taylor had another excellent game. He's putting it together after a shaky start to the season. -B- The Steelers host the Chiefs at home next Monday night before a showdown with the Ravens. Pittsburgh's favored by almost two touchdowns in the early lines. If you are into sports betting, check out SportsBettingWorld.com to bet on next week's NFL action. I'm taking the Steelers at home. -B- I like the Eagles tonight on Monday Night Football. Have a feeling this will be Michael Vick's last big ride. Speaking of the Eagles, the Steelers are 3-0 so far against the once hallowed NFC East. Only the Cowboys are left.
