Roethlisberger Sharp As Steelers Rout Eagles 24-14

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger completed 8 of 12 passes for 125 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the Pittsburgh Steelers cruised by the Philadelphia Eagles 24-14 on Thursday night.

Roethlisberger directed the defending AFC champions to touchdowns on both drives he played, hitting Antonio Brown for a 29-yard score in the first quarter and veteran Hines Ward on a 20-yard strike in the second.

Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick started the day clarifying comments he made in a “GQ” article in which he suggested NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell convinced him to sign with the Eagles as a backup two years ago rather than compete for a starting job elsewhere.

His night wasn’t any better.
