It was a shootout in Pittsburgh, as Andrew Luck and Roethlisberger kept driving their teams down the field, but it was Roethlisberger who did it all. The Steelers' QB set franchise records with 522 yards and 6 touchdown passes in the 51-34 victory. It was his 100th win in his 150th career start. He finished the day throwing 40/49, and did not throw an interception.
Big Ben found Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant twice in the end zone, while also connecting with Markus Wheaton and William Gay for scores. He is now the 1st quarterback in NFL history with 2 separate 500-yard passing games, and his 522 is tied for 4th all-time in a single game. He lead Pittsburgh to a 5-3 record, as they go on to host the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night.
Earlier in the day, in Foxborough, Patriots QB Tom Brady went off on the Chicago Bears, leading his team to a dominating win. He threw for 5 touchdowns, including 3 to tight end Rob Gronkowski. He also found Brandon LaFell and Tim Wright in the end zone.
Brady was 30/35 for 354 yards, and also did not throw an interception in the 51-23 victory. The Patriots scored in all 5 first half possessions, as they ran their record to 6-2. Brady has thrown for 1,268 yards, 14 touchdowns, and no interceptions during the Patriots 4-game winning streak. He will lead his team into a big time showdown with Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
