Roethlisberger Throws 6 TD's Again, Steelers Rout Ravens

Justin K. Aller/Getty Images(PITTSBURGH) -- For the second straight week, Ben Roethlisberger threw six touchdowns as the Pittsburgh Steelers beat Baltimore 43-23 on Sunday night. Roethlisberger's performance helped set an NFL record for combined touchdown passes in consecutive games, with 12.

"I don't think any of us are surprised by anything he does," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. "We have been looking at it for some time."

Big Ben's night began in the second quarter with a five-yard scoring pass to Le'Veon Bell that tied the game at 7-7. Two minutes later, Roethlisberger connected with Martavis Bryant to take the lead before finding Markus Wheaton for a 47-yard strike to give the Steelers (6-3) a 22-17 halftime lead.

Baltimore (5-4) struggled to keep their composure, committing 10 penalties, while the offense could not catch up to the Steelers. Joe Flacco was sacked four times and intercepted once but did throw two touchdowns for 303 yards. 

Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh quarterback continued his historic stretch with three more touchdown's in the second half, including a second pass to Bryant. His sixth came on a fourth-and-2 play with under two minutes remaining as he connected with Matt Spaeth to set the record.

The Steelers also celebrated one of their greatest ever, retiring former defensive lineman Joe Greene's number 75 at halftime.

Brady, Roethlisberger Each Lead Romps

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Both Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger had big days on Sunday, leading their teams to impressive routs. Brady and the New England Patriots easily handled the Chicago Bears 51-23 while Roethlisberger's Pittsburgh Steelers dominated in a 51-34 win over Indianapolis.

Brady tossed five touchdown passes in the romp over Chicago, continuing an impressive stretch of four straight wins. The Patriots quarterback was 30-for-35 in the win for 354 yards. New England (6-2) scored on all five possessions in the first half, leading 38-7 at halftime.

"I love coaching Tom. I've been fortunate to have him the whole career since he's been here," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. "He does a great job of executing the team game plan."

Meanwhile, Big Ben outdid Brady by throwing for six touchdowns, a franchise record, in a big momentum win over the Colts. The Pittsburgh quarterback also set a franchise mark with 522 passing yards while picking up his 100th career victory.

"We just felt like they couldn't stop us because we were just clicking," said Roethlisberger. "It was one of those nights that players talk about when things feel like they're going right."

The Steelers improved to 5-3 on the year and won consecutive games for the first time all season.

Second Quarter Outburst Lifts Steelers Past Houston

Justin K. Aller/Getty Images(PITTSBURGH) -- The Pittsburgh Steelers scored 24 points in the second quarter, including three touchdowns in less than 90 seconds, to pick up a 30-23 win over the Houston Texans on Monday night. It was the 16th straight victory for the Steelers on Monday Night Football.

Trailing 13-0 halfway through the second quarter, the Steelers (4-3) got on the board with a Shaun Suisham field goal at the 3:08 mark. Less than two minutes later, Ben Roethlisberger found Martavis Bryant for a 35-yard touchdown pass that brought Pittsburgh within three at 13-10.

What happened next changed the course of the game. Two plays after the touchdown, Houston's Arian Foster fumbled deep in his own territory to give the Steelers perfect field possession. Wide receiver Antonio Brown then delivered a three-yard pass to Lance Moore on a reverse, putting Pittsburgh ahead 17-13. Things only escalated for the Texans (3-4) when Ryan Fitzpatrick's pass was tipped an intercepted on the very next play.

That set-up another scoring drive for Pittsburgh, capped off by a Roethlisberger two-yard strike to Le'Veon Ball, making it a 24-13 ball game at halftime.

"You stand on the sidelines long enough, you will see explosions such as that," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. "It was good to be on the good side of it."

The Steelers only mustered a pair of second-half field goals and had to hold off a late rally by the Texans. Houston pulled within a touchdown when Fitzpatrick and Foster connected for a touchdown pass with 1:31 remaining in regulation. However, the ensuing onside kick was recovered by Pittsburgh, who ran out the clock.

Linebacker James Harrison Ends Retirement, Returns to Steelers

NFL via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Less than three weeks after holding a retirement ceremony in Pittsburgh, veteran linebacker James Harrison has decided to come back and return to the Steelers.

"It's really family here, and I wanted to come back and finish it off where it started," Harrison said earlier this month.

The Steelers recently lost two of their starting linebackers as Jarvis Jones and Ryan Shazier were both injured Sunday night against the Carolina Panthers. Facing a shortage of linebackers, the team decided to go back in time to bring back one of their long-time leaders.

The 36-year-old Harrison spent the first nine of his ten-year career with the Steelers and won two Super Bowls during his time in Pittsburgh. He played one season with the Cincinnati Bengals and decided that 2013 would be his last season in the NFL, before returning.

ESPN: Steelers Lose LB Jarvis Jones at Least 8 Weeks

Pittsburgh Steelers/NFL(PITTSBURGH) -- Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Jarvis Jones was placed on the injured reserve/designated to return list Monday, according to ESPN.com.

Jones had surgery on his wrist Monday after he dislocated it during the team's 37-19 victory over the Carolina Panthers Sunday.

The Steelers used their one annual injured reserve exemption on Jones, meaning the linebacker will be able to practice in six weeks and play in a game in eight weeks if deemed healthy.

The 24-year-old Jones, who was drafted by the Steelers with the 17th overall selection of the 2013 NFL Draft, had 14 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in three games this season.

According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, linebacker James Harrison, who retired less than three weeks ago, is expected to join the Steelers.
