    Sorry if this is a db, checked and did not see, thought it deserved it's own
    thread etc, etc.

    In case anyone has missed Ben Roethlisberger has thrown 12 TD's in past 2
    weeks. Just a spectacular run by an NFL QB.

    Brady did it a few years ago.

    I fell asleep after the Steelers' third straight 3 and out to start the game. Woke up pleasantly surprised to see what transpired.

    He'll always have the drunk girl fiasco on his resume and some people can't separate what happens inside and outside the lines, which is a fair stance to take. Kobe falls into the category big-time. That said, Roesthlisberger is a joy to watch.

    Bill Clinton, Marv Albert and Kobe recovered. So can Ben

    He is fun to watch. It's crazy to say the guy is underrated with two rings, but I really feel like he is underrated, or at least overshadowed by some of the great QBs that have been around for most, if not all of his career.

    That's also 12 TDs against two really good teams.

    Both he and Rivers took a step back for a few years while Manning,
    Brady and Rogers stayed on top. Now they are both moving back into the
    upper realm.

    Perhaps we can give Rivers a "playing on West Coast time" pass for yesterday's debacle.

    Those kind of trips don't usually end well for the away team. That's why the smart teams usually go earlier in the week.

    Tannehill is playing really well lately. Good timing for him since he can get his contract extension this off-season.

    I've always thought that a head coach leading a team into such a game should spend the entire week practicing early in the morning to at least get the collective mindset ready, not to mention, get there Wednesday and deal with the jet-lag and other travel factors.

    I couldn't believe what I was watching. Six touchdowns against the Ravens defense?? Baltimore's D and the Colts aren't exactly known as cream puffs.

    Some teams do it that way. The Niners have done that a few times when they had back-to-back games on the East Coast.

    I think it being an early game really makes a difference.

    No he didn't. It's an NFL record.
