Ben Roethlisberger’s baffling endzone interceptions spell big trouble for Steelers vs. Ravens

Big Ben Roethlisberger’s trio of troubling interceptions vs. the Titans ended up costing the Steelers points on long drives – but luckily not the too-close-for-comfort 27-24 contest. The lingering effect of those picks could be the proof that Big Ben isn’t the same gun-slinging Steelers quarterback of old. The new Ben isn’t the same as the old Ben. The difference could be big, as in the absence of his once signature long-ball. Not only has been rare this season – it’s been off on a growing number of the few occasions Roethlisberger lets it rip. Bottom Line for Big Ben vs. the Titans: Roethlisbeger threw two passes longer than 20 yards. Both were intercepted.

Now comes the rested, rival Ravens and MVP Lamar Jackson. Ben and the Steelers just may need the long-ball to earn a win in Charm City. The question is – can 38-year-old Roethlisberger and his surgically repaired throwing arm deliver when it counts? I tackle this looming concern – plus all the Ravens-Steelers storylines – in this edition of the Steelers Update Podcast from PennLive. So listen up, Steelers fans!
