PITTSBURGH -- At some point, the Philadelphia Eagles' high-wire act to start the season was going to come crashing down. It was only fitting that it came at the hands of another comeback artist. Ben Roethlisberger engineered a game-winning drive that ended with Shaun Suisham's 34-yard field goal as time expired, and the Steelers edged the Eagles 16-14 Sunday at Heinz Field. "I don't know if it's a sickness or what it is, but you can't get that feeling doing too many other things," Suisham said. "It certainly is a thrill." The Eagles (3-2) had hoped that Michael Vick's 2-yard touchdown pass to Brent Celek with 6:38 left in the fourth quarter would be enough for their fourth comeback win of 2012. But Roethlisberger calmly directed a patient, clinical offense in the final minutes. The Steelers (2-2) relied on short passes, as well as several key runs by Rashard Mendenhall, to drive deep into Philadelphia territory. Rather than play fo...

So far this season, Ben Roethlisberger has been on a record pace. In the first 3 games he threw for 904 yds, 8 touchdowns and 1 interception. The upgraded offense installed by Todd Haley clearly works in favor of the strengths of Big Ben and over the course of the season is capable of producing offensive numbers we haven’t seen in Pittsburgh in, well, forever. Spreading the ball...
With the way the NFL protects quarterbacks these days, it would be extremely difficult to take a shot at an opposing passer’s head without being called for a personal foul and subsequently fined. Ben Roethlisberger apparently thought the Eagles were attempting it on Sunday, as evidenced by the play where he got in Philly defensive end Brandon Graham’s face after taking a shot...
The 13 yard touchdown that Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall scored in the win over the Philadelphia Eagles was officially scored as a run and not a pass from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.The official scorer viewed the pass from Roethlisberger as being a lateral and I have had a few request to take a closer look at the play. Obviously this play could make the...
Ben Roethlisberger getting sucked into the ground? I don’t mind.
If it were to happen, the Eagles would of course wind up safely where Hines Ward lands in the clip.
A girl can dream.
