The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback passed for 367 yards and four touchdowns, including two in the final 5 minutes as the Steelers rallied to beat the Lions 37-27.
The victory capped a contentious week in which Roethlisberger refuted speculation he may seek a trade in the offseason and rumors the franchise would like him to take a more “cerebral” approach to the game.
He responded by calling most of the plays against an aggressive but immature defense as Pittsburgh put together its most productive offensive day in more than two years.
“It feels awesome to win it the way we did,” Roethlisberger said mounting the 31st comeback victory of his 10-year career.
Ben looked young again, he was amazing and the Steelers deserved to win.
