In a season where questions abounded whether he had “it” anymore, Ben Roethlisberger is proving doubters wrong.
Big Ben has guided his team to an unbeaten 9-0 record with a four-touchdown, 333-yard performance versus the Cincinnati Bengals.
You would have to go back to two seasons ago, Week 9 versus the Carolina Panthers, to find a better performance by Roethlisberger. On that day, he threw for 328 yards and five touchdowns.
In Pittsburgh’s 36-10 victory over the Bengals, Roethlisberger spread the ball around to seven different receivers, three of whom found paydirt. Rookie receiver Chase Claypool enjoyed his third multi-touchdown game of the season with two scores. Diontae Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster both pitched in with one apiece.
2020 is the first season with this group of talented, young receivers, and it appears as if everything is starting to click.
