23Winner: Big Ben could do no wrong
Thursday night’s stunning blowout win for the Pittsburgh Steelers over the Carolina Panthers was one of Ben Roethlisberger’s finest games as a professional. The veteran almost couldn’t miss, and he finished with just three incompletions on 25 attempts.
Big Ben spread the ball around to nine different receivers, finishing with 328 yards and five touchdowns, including a 75-yard precision strike to JuJu Smith-Schuster on Pittsburgh’s first offensive play of the game.
Carolina thought it had a shot in this game after going up 7-0 early. But Roethlisberger and the Steelers rattled off a rapid-fire 24-0 run from there, ultimately winning by the absurd score of 52-21.
