Ben Roethlisberger QB PIT Dec 16 '12
Ben Roethlisberger completed 24-of-40 passes for 339 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Pittsburgh's Week 15 overtime loss in Dallas.
Roethlisberger settled down for his third 300-yard game of the season after getting off to a shaky start, but doomed the Steelers' chances with an interception in overtime. Roethlisberger telegraphed a pass to Mike Wallace, and Cowboys CB Brandon Carr jumped the route, returning the ball all the way to the Steelers' one-yard line. It was Ben's worst throw of the day by far, and one that has Pittsburgh facing a must-win game in Week 16 against the Bengals. Roethlisberger did make one of the best plays of his career in the second quarter, evading the rush for nearly 10 seconds as he pump faked twice before finding Heath Miller for a 30-yard touchdown. Despite missing three and a half games, Roethlisberger will enter Week 16 with 22 scores.
