    Default Steelers Rout Browns 28-10

    Ben Roethlisberger Throws 3 Touchdowns In Return, Steelers Rout Browns 28-10

    by Michael Bean on Oct 17, 2010 4:28 PM EDT

    Not a bad 2010 debut for Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger! Big Ben throws for 257 yards and 3 TDs as the Steelers easily defeat the Cleveland Browns 28-10 in front of a Heinz Field crowd that greeted Roethlisberger warmly. A comprehensive recap coming from me, but for now, discuss the game here. My initial quick-hit thoughts to get the conversation going:

    •Nice game plan by Bruce Arians today - the Steelers threw the ball 27 times and rushed the ball 35 times.
    •Roethlisberger wasn't perfect, but boy did he look sharp for his first game back. He threw the ball with touch when necessary, slinged it down the field with authority at others, broke contain in the pocket when appropriate - just a very nice performance from him. This Steelers team showed flashes of how good they can be now that Roethlisberger is back in the fold.

    Game Five: Roethlisberger’s return a success in 28-10 win over Cleveland
    October 17th, 2010 Matt Loede

    The return of Ben Roethlisberger didn’t exactly start like a house of fire, but playing the at time inept Browns was just what the doctor ordered as the Steelers won 28-10 to move to 4-1.

    Roethlisberger was 16-for-27 for 257 yards with three TD’s. He had a pick on the teams first possession, which led to Cleveland taking a 3-0 lead in the first quarter. From there, Roethlisberger was his usual self, avoiding sacks and making plays downfield when it mattered.

    Rashard Mendenhall rushed his way to 84 tough yards and a touchdown, the first rushing score Cleveland had allowed in 2010. Mike Wallace lead the receiving core with 90 yards on three catches with a score, Ben’s first on a pretty 29-yard catch to make it 7-3.

    The Steelers defense did their part against Browns rookie QB Colt McCoy, as other than a late TD with the Steelers up 21-3, they held the former Texas QB in check. McCoy was 23-for-33 for 281 with a TD and two picks.

    James Harrison knocked two Cleveland players out, as first he laid out Josh Cribbs in the second quarter. Cribbs left with a head injury and didn’t come back. Then later on Harrison nailed Browns WR Mohamed Massaquoi, knocking him out as well.

    The Steelers took control of the game after leading 7-3 at the half with a big 5-play, 96-yard drive in the third quarter that saw Roethlisberger hit a pass play in first down to Wallace, and then hit TE Heath Miller for a 36-yard gain. The touchdown went to Hines Ward from 8 yards out to make it 14-3.

    After a botched Browns punt in the fourth quarter that started the Steelers at the 8, they put it away for good with a Mendenhall two-yard run to make it 21-3 with 5:50 left.

    The Browns scored a garbage TD when McCoy put a drive together and found TE Ben Watson with a 12-yard score to make it 21-10 with 4:09 left. The Steelers got their final score after a Lawrence Timmons pick, and Roethlisberger found Miller for a 14-yard score to wrap up the scoring at 28-10.

    Overall the Steelers D covered for a somewhat sloppy outing early by the offense, but the team did what they had to do and got the job done against a clearly overmatched Browns club.

    Roethlisberger was off on a number of passes, and clearly showed some rust, but again, it was good they were playing a team that wasn’t going to push them too much in their first game back.

    Next week the now 4-1 team will head to Florida for the second time in 2010 as they play the Dolphins, who beat the Packers in OT Sunday in Green Bay and are 3-2.

    The team wasn't perfect but I'll take the win.

    Ben had some off passes but he had some good ones also.

    Mendy did some good with his legs but there were other times he got stuffed.

    The defense did good up until the end and I see this being a problem until they address it.

    Arians stunk the place up with some of his play calling and especially at the end of the game.

    The o-line didn't allow a sack and Ben did hang on to the ball and so I say now, Ben creates a lot of his own sacks.

    I was surprised that this was Woodleys first game to get a sack this season. Did I hear that stat correctly.

    BTW, five games into the season and Ben hasn't been sacked yet.
