Ben Roethlisberger finished Sunday’s home opener 21-of-27 for a game-high 369 yards with 3 touchdowns for a passer rating of 155.8.

I have to give Coach Haley a lot of credit. I told him this Sunday night when I got home and texted him, I said, ‘You know coach, I give you credit.’ Because when we were driving down the field in the no-huddle, we got down a couple of times to the 5-yard line, the 10-yard line, and sometimes even closer and typically, I would expect to hear in my head … ok, huddle up, we’re bringing out this goal-line package, jumbo, him calling a play. He never once did that. That’s to his credit that he just kind of let us keep rolling in.”
