- Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger returned to the field this week and became the 16th quarterback in NFL history to reach 40,000 passing yards, the ninth with one team and only the fifth active quarterback to do so.
- While Roethlisberger hit that milestone, it was a tough day for him in his return. He had 28 completions for 262 yards and a touchdown, but threw three interceptions and shouldered the blame for the loss to the Bengals.
"This one's on me," said Roethlisberger. "It was just bad football on my part and I apologize."
-Tight end Heath Miller led all receivers with 10 receptions for 105 yards, including a key 25 yard reception. Miller tied a career high with his 10 receptions, and it's the most he has had this season.
- Penalties played a huge factor for both teams, as they were each penalized 10 times. The Steelers were flagged 10 times for 91 yards and they proved costly.
- Cornerback Antwon Blake had his second interception of the season, picking off Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton. The two interceptions are a single season high for him.
