The Pittsburgh Steelers are back on top of the latest Power Rankings for ESPN (See rankings at http://tinyurl.com/25ya4q9) after the shaky victorious return of Ben Roethlisberger showed the team’s potential .The two-time superbowl champ was at quarterback for the first time this season after serving his 4-game suspension. Three touchdown passes and a win later and the Steelers look to be the team to beat in the NFL.
The Steelers lone loss of the season was a nail-biter that came in Week 4 against the tough defense of the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens narrowly edged the Steelers after a game-winning drive with minutes left on the clock and No real quarterback for the Steelers to turn to. Had Big Ben been at the helm, it is very easy to believe that the Steelers would have come out victorious.
Now that Roethlisberger is back on the field, all the eyes have to be on the renewed offensive airshow and powerful rushing game. Let’s not forget that the Steelers don’t look bad on the other side of the ball either.
