Pittsburgh Steelers

Big Ben was 20 of 25 for 191 yards with a TD and an INT on Sunday against the Bengals.

He's thrown 12 TDs over the last five game and Sunday marked his first pick during that span.

Roethlisberger completed 23 of 39 passes for 349 yards with three touchdowns in Sunday's 34-28 loss to Miami.

Big Ben has been on quite a roll, throwing for 1,190 yards with 11 touchdowns and no picks over his last four games.

Roethlisberger was 28 for 44 for 257 yards and two TDs, but the Steelers fell to the Ravens on Thanksgiving night 22-20.

The Steelers had a chance to tie the game at the end, but Roethlisberger's two-point conversion pass to Emmanuel Sanders fell incomplete with 1:03 remaining in the game.

Roethlisberger completed 22 of 34 passes for 217 yards in Pittsburgh's 27-11 victory over the Browns on Sunday. He threw two TD's and no interceptions in the game.

The Steelers have now won three consecutive games, and Roethlisberger improved to 16-1 in his career versus the Browns.

Roethlisberger isn't ready to talk about getting a new long-term deal. He said Wednesday he is "extremely happy" with the Steelers and will do whatever is necessary to stay in Pittsburgh. Roethlisberger's contract expires after the 2015 season. The Steelers traditionally try to reach agreement on new deals with their quarterbacks two years before their contracts are up.

The 31-year-old is scheduled to make a base salary of $12.1 million in 2014 and $11.5 million in 2015. His salary cap number for both seasons is over $18 million because of signing bonuses. Roethlisberger said he'll be happy to discuss a new contract "when the time comes." Roethlisberger was selected the AFC Offensive Player of the Week after throwing for 367 yards and four touchdowns against the Lions.

Roethlisberger was terrific on Sunday, throwing 367 yards and four touchdowns in a 37-27 win over Detroit.

Roethlisberger has now thrown four scores in two of the last three weeks. He only has nine TD passes in his other eight games, though. Fantasy owners may want to play the matchups with Roethlisberger down the stretch.

Roethlisberger threw for 400 yards and a season-high four touchdowns in Sunday's 55-31 loss at New England.

Despite his big day, Roethlisberger doesn't have much fantasy value aside from deeper leagues. He has recorded just one TD in six of eight games.

Roethlisberger has thrown his 200th touchdown pass.

Roethlisberger is the second quarterback in Steelers history to reach the milestone. Terry Bradshaw is the other. He threw for 212 TDs from 1970-83. Roethlisberger reached No. 200 when he found Antonio Brown in the end zone in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. Roethlisberger then connected twice with Jerricho Cotchery in the third quarter to give him 202.

Roethlisberger completed 29 of 45 passes for 275 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's loss to Oakland. He was sacked five times.

He hasn't had more than one TD pass since Week 3, and protection is clearly a concern here.

Roethlisberger finished 23 of 30 for 264 yards with a TD and no INTs during Sunday's win over the Jets.

He three five INTs in his previous four games this season.
