Roethlisberger completed 22-of-30 passes for 196 yards and two touchdown in Sunday's 37-19 win over the Panthers
10 days after struggling to six points against the Ravens, the Pittsburgh offense put together a fantastic game against a strong Carolina defense. Roethlisberger was efficient on a limited number of throws, and running backs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount combined for 265 rushing yards on 31 carries. Roethlisberger made an incredible play on the first of Antonio Brown's two touchdowns, lofting a perfect pass into the back right corner, following a pair of pump fakes. The Steelers have a favorable schedule over the next four weeks, facing Tampa Bay, Jacksonville, Cleveland and Houston, in that order. The Bucs, while fairly talented on defense, are dealing with crucial injuries to DT Gerald McCoy (hand) and MLB Mason Foster (shoulder).

Roethlisberger completed 22-of-37 passes for 217 yards, adding one interception in Thursday's 26-6 loss to the Ravens.
The interception came on a deflected pass in the waning minutes of a decided game. Still, Roethlisberger turned in an uncharacteristically poor performance, and didn't get much help from his receivers or offensive line. RB Le'Veon Bell impressed for a second straight week, but it was an otherwise ugly outing for the Pittsburgh offense, a unit that piled up 503 yards and 30 points against the Browns in Week 1. Based on the early returns from the Steeler defense, Roethlisberger may need to do a lot of throwing this year.
