If Ben Roethlisberger has plenty left in the tank, it’s not necessarily high test.
But even running on fumes, he might be enough today.
The Steelers are up 10-3 on the Bills at halftime, as Roethlisberger threw a touchdown just before the end of a messy half.
Roethlisberger, whose agent had to dispute reports he wanted out of Pittsburgh earlier in the day, got off to a slow start. An early interception by Bills safety Jairus Byrd got his side out to a 3-0 lead, and it looked like it might stand up. There was much punting, but the Steelers showed some ability to run the ball.
That allowed Roethlisberger to use play-action with effect, and he found Jerricho Cotchery for a 5-yard touchdown pass.
The Bills have been unimpressive as well. E.J. Manuel is 6-of-13 passing for 43 yards, a less-than-stellar performance after missing a month with a knee injury.
