Ben Roethlisberger says on his radio show (93.7 the Fan) he had no issue with Antonio Brown. “If there was a blowout, I certainly didn’t see it,” said Roethlisberger.
Ben said he talked to Brown Thursday a.m. and “everything was great,” but understands frustration from Brown being gone late in week, according to the tweet. As we reported via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Monday, Brown apparently threw a football and Roethlisberger and then didn't show up for practices and meetings leading up to the game, but did show up Sunday expecting to play, the story said. The team said Brown sat because of a knee issue.
PIT QB Ben Roethlisberger - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Ben Roethlisberger lit the Saints defense up for 380 yards and three touchdowns last week in a big-time road performance. The NFL's passing yards leader has already set the team record for TD passes in a season and could lead the league in passing yardage. He gets a soft Cincinnati defense that has been better since Marvin Lewis took over playcalling duties but is still allowing nearly 290 yards passing per game with 31 touchdowns. Roethlisberger is a very solid QB1 play in a game the Steelers need to win.
