Roethlisberger remains unbeaten

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- So much for a perfect week in New England sports, the Patriots' chances for a perfect season and the longest winning streaks in NFL history.

Ben Roethlisberger, a rookie quarterback who seemingly doesn't know how to lose, drove the Steelers to four scores following uncharacteristic New England turnovers and Pittsburgh ended the Patriots' two long winning streaks with a remarkably easy 34-20 victory Sunday.

Being a Falcon fan I hate to say this, but Roethlisberger has done amazing in his rookie year in Pittsburgh. He sure beat the crap out of the MAC when he was running the Miami (of Ohio) offense.

I never though that the Steelers were going to kill the Patriots streak, but these types of things never end the way you think they will. I mean, who thought the Cards would lay an egg in the World Series this year.

So congrats to Big Ben, yet another QB from the MAC taking the NFL by storm. By the way, what happened to Josh Harris? He is listed as inactive.

I live in Pittsburgh. So let me give you guys a quick discussion of the feeling here. Before today, people were kind of questioning whether the Steelers had actually arrived, or if they were just another bunch of over-rated fakers. The sports talk personalities were about split whether they'd win or lose, and those on the downside (myself included) just hoped that when they lost, it wasn't some heart breaking 17 point margin, because the other half the town was hyping this game like a playoff game.

No one doubts Ben Roethlisberger will be a star, but people here think that the story so far has been too perfect, that there's some unexposed weakness. And if I were a betting man, I would have bet that the Pats would be the team to expose said weaknesses.

Well, I don't think there's any doubt today. This ain't the same 6-10 team as last year. The Steelers have arrived.

For your sake, I am glad you don't bet! With no Dillon to run and a bad day for Brady, no one saw that one coming.

Chris Mayle:

Yeah, the town is still somewhat in shock about it. Folks are even talking Super Bowl. Before Sunday I would have said that talk was premature. Now though...
