Roethlisberger looked to be in regular season form

The biggest positive for the Steelers Saturday night was the play of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger who looked to be in regular season form. Roethlisberger went 13/19 for 166 yards and a touchdown, posting a 113.0 quarterback rating. We saw a more aggressive game plan also that the Steelers will have to operate this season with. Roethlisberger’s lone TD pass came with 2:51 left in the 1st quarter when he connected with Jonathan Dwyer for a 13-yard touchdown in the first quarter that was vintage Roethlisberger as was nearly sacked by Kansas City’s Tamba Hali, but avoided Hali, stepped out of the pocket and found Dwyer for a 13-yard touchdown pass. Roethlisberger and the first offense attacked the Chiefs through the air with Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown connecting for a 49 yard pass down the left side on the Steelers second play of the game. Roethlisberger nearly had a second touchdown pass when he threw a beautiful deep ball to Emmanuel Sanders who reeled it in but was unable to control the ball when taken down by Brandon Flowers.
