1. Roethlisberger having elite year
Ben Roethlisberger is quietly having his best year as a Steelers’ quarterback.
He is on pace to break his own single-season record for passing yards. He has a solid 25:11 TD-to-Int ratio while posting a 94.3 passer rating. He has already become the Steelers all-time leader in passing touchdowns earlier this year.
The Packers’ pass defense has become very opportunistic lately with five interceptions the last three games. But they are still giving up a ton of yardage through the air. Green Bay doesn’t need a shootout. A full 60-minute defensive effort will be needed if the Packers are going to stay the course.
