Roethlisberger wrapped up the season with three touchdown passes in a 24-10 win over the Browns on Sunday.||||||| He was 15 of 23 passing for 134 yards. Roethlisberger had 26 touchdowns and just eight interceptions on the season.
Posted Dec. 19, 2012
Roethlisberger has apologized to offensive coordinator Todd Haley for his comments following a 27-24 overtime loss to Dallas last Sunday.||||||| Roethlisberger took Haley to task over the team's inability to feature tight end Heath Miller in the second half and wondered why the Steelers didn't stay in the no-huddle offense. The quarterback says he was frustrated after Pittsburgh (7-7) lost for the fourth time in five games and that he was unable to keep his emotions under control. Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Roethlisberger and Haley were on the same page.
Posted Dec. 17, 2012
Roethlisberger had 339 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against Dallas but was sacked four times and threw a key interception in overtime during a 27-24 loss to Dallas.||||||| The performance came in Roethlisberger's second game back from a shoulder injury. He had 285 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in a loss to San Diego on Dec. 9. After losing four of five, the Steelers (7-7) trail AFC North rival Cincinnati by a game for the second wild card spot. They host the Bengals next week.

Roethlisberger went 22 of 42 for three touchdowns and an interception against the Chargers on Sunday.||||||| It was Roethlisberger's first game after missing three weeks due to injury.
Posted Dec. 07, 2012
Though the Steelers confirmed Roethlisberger will return to the starting lineup on Sunday against San Diego after missing three weeks due to injury, Roethlisberger will take the field with a little extra protection. Roethlisberger will play with a custom-fit rib/chest compression shirt and a layer of Kevlar-lined composite in his shoulder pads to help absorb hits to his clavicle and shoulder joint regions.||||||| The padding, made by Unequal Technologies, has grown popular across the NFL. Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick wore a similar compression shirt after injuring his ribs a few years ago and dozens of players - including Pittsburgh safety Troy Polamalu and linebacker James Harrison - use Unequal CRT in their helmets.
