PHILADELPHIA (AP) - For a big guy, Ben Roethlisberger goes down quite a bit.
Roethlisberger has been sacked an NFL-high 177 times since 2008, including eight times in his last regular-season game against the Philadelphia Eagles four years ago.
That beating is fresh on Roethlisberger's mind as the Pittsburgh Steelers (1-2) prepare to host the Eagles (3-1) on Sunday. Byron Leftwich had to finish up a 15-6 loss in Philadelphia on Sept. 21, 2008 after Roethlisberger took a hard hit from Brian Dawkins in the fourth quarter.
``They got after us and sacked me a bunch,'' Roethlisberger said. ``It was a very frustrating game. I remember after that game going to one of my teammate's houses and saying `I don't know if I can do this much longer.' They wreak havoc on you and they create a lot of issues.''
