Pittsburgh Steelers

Ben Roethlisberger completed 22-of-25 passes for 328 yards and five touchdowns in Pittsburgh's Week 10 game against the Panthers, taking a seat with the Steelers winning 52-14 in the fourth quarter. For the fourth time in his career, Roethlisberger finished with a perfect passer rating. He set the tone with a 75-yard touchdown to JuJu Smith-Schuster on the Steelers' first play from scrimmage. He also found Antonio Brown for a 53-yard score. The rest of the scores went to Vance McDonald, Jesse James and Jaylen Samuels (yes, really). The performance was extra impressive since Ben was playing banged up on a short week. Roethlisberger is not going to fare as well in Week 11, where the Steelers are venturing on the road to Jacksonville.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Blake Bortles completed 26-of-38 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns in the Jaguars' Week 10 loss to the Colts. Bortles’ day started on a high note. He threw a great pass to Donte Moncrief on their second drive of the game, and the former Colt broke a couple tackles on his way to an 80-yard score. He was limited to handoffs most of the rest of the first half, but he got things going a bit on a two-minute drive for a field goal just before the half. He kept things going after the break, throwing for 59 yards and a score on the opening drive and keeping the offense moving despite Jacksonville’s near insistence on putting him in third-and-long situations. He drove the offense down the field for what at worst should have been a game-tying field goal, but a Rashad Greene fumble ended the game. Bortles played well enough for the Jags to win this game, but he will have a tougher time next week against the Steelers.
