Roethlisberger is Digest Player of Week

Bob Labriola
Steelers.com

The Steelers QB had a 136.4 passer rating on the evening.

NEW ORLEANS - Mission accomplished. If the idea was to get Ben Roethlisberger a little bit of work in order for him to be up to speed for the regular season opener on Sept. 12, things couldn’t have worked out better than they did tonight in the Superdome.

Roethlisberger played two series, and he was 2-for-2, as in two touchdowns scored on drives of 74 yards in 15 plays and then 79 yards in four plays. He ended the first with a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jesse James after sliding to the right in the pocket to create some space to make the throw, and he ended the second with a perfectly thrown deep pass to Antonio Brown on a third-and-short. During his time on the field, the Steelers were 3-for-3 on third down, and his stats line after two series was 12-of-17 for 148 yards, with two touchdowns, no interceptions, and a passer rating of 136.4.

Roethlisberger is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.

Also considered were Brown, who caught four passes for 87 yards, including a 57-yard touchdown during which he sold the Saints defender on a short sideline route before turning up-field to haul in Roethlisberger’s perfect pass; Le’Veon Bell, who rushed three times for 21 yards and caught five passes for 37 more; Landry Jones, who completed 19-of-22 for 206 yards, with one touchdown, no interceptions, and a rating of 120.8; Sammie Coates, who caught two passes for 66 yards, one of which covered 58 yards and the other being an 8-yard touchdown; Jesse James, who caught four passes for 25 yards and a touchdown; Vince Williams, who had a team-high eight tackles, including stops on back-to-back short-yardage plays that turned the ball over on downs; Javon Hargrave, who had his first NFL sack; Steven Johnson, who had two tackles and an interception; Tyler Matakevich, who had one tackle and an interception; and Chris Boswell, who hit field goals of 40 and 48 yards.

Well deserved. It's obvious that he just elevates this offense to a whole nother level. Can't wait for September 18th when I get to see him play in Pittsburgh, in person!
