    Ben Roethlisberger will tell his side of the story or at least what he has been through since being accused of rape in a civil lawsuit tonight on the ESPN magazine program E:60.

    The Steelers quarterback talks one-on-one with reporter Michael Smith at 7 p.m. about a subject on which he has said very little since being named in the highly publicized lawsuit. It was filed on behalf of a former employee of a Lake Tahoe resort who claims Roethlisberger sexually assaulted her in his hotel room in 2008.

    Roethlisberger, who was playing in a celebrity golf event at the time of the alleged incident, has denied any wrongdoing. He tells Smith that the tarnishing of his family name is one reason why he and his lawyers have mounted an aggressive defense and countersued his accuser.

    If the civil suit, which Roethlisberger's lawyers unsuccessfully petitioned to have thrown out, has been a distraction, it hasn't shown. Roethlisberger is in the midst of a career season.

    He entered Monday night's game against the Denver Broncos with just over 2,000 passing yards and the fifth-best passer rating (102.6) in the NFL. Roethlisberger, who completed just over 70 percent of his passes through the Steelers' first seven games, is on pace to set a handful of franchise records.

    Last night, he was trying to become the first Steelers quarterback to win a regular-season game in Denver since 1990. The Broncos, coming off their first loss of the season, seemed intent on not abetting Roethlisberger in that endeavor.

    They sacked him twice in the first quarter and allowed just 56 yards of total offense to the Steelers in the first half.

    With the offense scuffling, the defense got the Steelers on the scoreboard at Invesco Field.

    Tyrone Carter intercepted a pass near midfield and returned it 48 yards for a touchdown and a 7-3 lead early in the second quarter.

    Carter started last night for Ryan Clark, who was deactivated because of a medical condition, and the Steelers did not experience much of a drop off in the secondary.

    Carter, in fact, has intercepted four passes and returned two of them for touchdowns in the past three games he has started at free safety over the past two seasons.

    His play proved to be the biggest one for the Steelers during a first half in which they were outgained by more than 100 yards.

    The Steelers were trying to improve to 6-2 last night so they could arrive at the midway point of the season tied with the Bengals for first place in the AFC North.

    The Steelers host the Bengals on Sunday.

    Ben brings his oline guys down to Georgia and pulls them on a inner tube with his boat. No wonder they let him get sacked from time to time- is he trying to kill them out there in Georgia?lol

    thanks for posting this remember ESPN -- they regardless of what is said on the program are a member of the media and they can and do spin stories to their hearts content -- just something to keep in mind.

    Well I thought it was going to be a great interview, it was, but nothing revealing nor anything we didn't already hear about- it turns out that it was only like 5-10 minute segment. Worth the look but not as in-depth as I hoped.
