Fantasy Impact This was arguably Roethlisberger's worst game of his 14-year career.
Not that Roethlisberger's play won't improve.
His 37.8 passer rating was his worst since he had a 37.8 against Buffalo on December 11 of last season.
Roethlisberger failed to throw a touchdown pass Sunday, making him just the second National Football League player since 2014 to do that while accounting for five interceptions.
When the 35-year-old quarterback was asked what he meant by that comment, he said, "I'm not playing well enough". It would have been unthinkable for the Ravens to drop two straight games, including one to the Steelers and for them to still have a shot at holding the AFC North crown.
"It's one of those things where I've been doing this a long time", Roethlisberger said. Just above him in the rankings are Mike Glennon and Blake Bortles, quarterbacks who beat the Steelers despite throwing for 101 and 95 yards, respectively. Sometimes the Jaguars were looking at a Steelers team they'd like to be like, and other times the Steelers were looking at a Jaguars team that was beating them at their own game.
Following a Carolina three-and-out, the Lions pulled to within 27-24 with 3:22 remaining on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Stafford to Fells.
The deficit forced the Steelers to throw more, but it's nearly as if an offense waiting to experience a passing-game explosion like old times grabbed for glory Sunday, to spectacular failure. "I've had bad games before, bad stretches".
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Brown was upset with Roethlisberger and the team over the way they handled the national anthem before their game against the Chicago Bears in Week 3. "Had good ones too, so you just find a way to move on and play better". Le'Veon Bell, meanwhile, got nine first-half carries and 15 overall just one week after carrying the team to a win at Baltimore. He went on to play at Notre Dame and wound up starting all 13 games of his senior season there, finishing with 30 catches for 317 yards and two touchdowns. The game takes place from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and has a scheduled start time of 1 p.m. ET. The Jaguars also came in last in rushing yards allowed, giving up an average of 165 per game. "Let's just wait and see where we're at when the season is over".
The Steelers entered the season thinking they had a realistic shot at winning the Super Bowl after losing in the AFC Championship Game to the New England Patriots last season. One positive note from todays was Antonio Brown's fantastic performance: 10 receptions and 157 yards. With Smith-Schuster, McDonald and Hunter as newcomers and with Bryant still struggling, Roethlisberger only has chemistry with Brown and Bell.
