Through the early stages of the fourth quarter, Ben Roethlisberger was the primary reason the Steelers held a 19-14 lead over the Denver Broncos. To that point, Roethlisberger had completed 20-of-34 for 216 yards and two touchdowns, and on the two touchdown drives, he converted six third-down situations with his passes, including both touchdowns. He finished 22-of-40 for 245 yards, including a late interception that was returned for a touchdown.
Roethlisberger is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.
Also considered were Heath Miller, who caught five passes for 50 yards and a touchdown; and Larry Foote, had eight tackles, including one for loss, plus a sack for a loss of 5 yards, a pass defensed and two quarterback pressures.
