PITTSBURGH – The Steelers’ 29-14 win Sunday over the Cincinnati Bengals has has placed them in an enviable position.

They are 3-0 in the division, with two of those victories having been on the road. Their remaining road game in the AFC North comes in the first week of December in Cincinnati, where they have lost just two times with Ben Roethlisberger at quarterback.

Steelers can’t turn back the clock on Big Ben

PITTSBURGH – Ben Roethlisberger is a proud, competitive person.

He’s one of those people who hates losing more than he loves winning, exactly the type of player you want as your quarterback.

That’s why there is little doubt that he will bounce back from a five-interception debacle – two of which were returned for touchdowns – Sunday at Heinz Field.
