Ben Roethlisberger Antonio Brown avoid J

Monday night's game between the Steelers and Redskins was billed as a matchup between Antonio Brown and Josh Norman, butthe two Boomer Esiason Jersey Pro Bowlers rarely lined up opposite one another, and when they didit was largely uneventful.As the Steelers keptBrown away from Norman, the Steelers receiver caught eight pa ses for 126 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-16Pittsburgh victory at FedEx Field.MORE: Top images from Week 1 Ben Roethlisberger picked on Redskins cornerBashaud Breeland on a record night for the Steelers quarterback.After the Redskins got a pair of earlyDustin Hopkins field goals, the Steelers took their first lead in the second quarter on a pa s to Brown.Pittsburgh gambled on fourth-and-1 from the Redskins' 29-yard line, and Roethlisberger lofted a perfect pa s to Brown, who got behindBreeland.#Steelers - Better angle #Herewego #PITvsWAS SiriusXM NFL Radio (@SiriusXMNFL) September 13, 2016 Brown beat Breeland again in the third quarter on an almost identical throw Paul Dawson Jersey for a 26-yard touchdown to give the Steelers a 24-6 lead with 7:01 remaining.MORE: Brown's post-TDtwerking was worth the penalty Roethlisberger, who finished 27 of 37for 300 yards with three touchdowns and one interception, alsothrew in Breeland's direction on Pittsburgh's second scorethough the Steelers got pretty lucky. The pa s from the 3-yard line went off the fingertips of Washington cornerbackDashaun Phillips and then deflected off Breeland's chest before landing in the arms of Steelers receiverEli Rogers.This is ridiculous. #Redskins #EliRogers video. #Steelers Senor Steenstra (@MikeOsteenstra) September 13, 2016 Rogers, the second-year receiver from Louisville, took responsibility for Roethlisberger's interception, which was deflected.He made up for it by catching six pa ses for 59 yards and his first NFL touchdown.By completing the eight pa ses to Brown, Roethlisberger became the first quarterback in NFL history with at least 500 completions to three different receivers Brown (502),HinesWard (512) and Heath Miller (540). Roethlisberger also Josh Shaw Jersey pa sed Hall of Famer Dan Fouts for 12th on the all-time pa sing yards list and moved past Hall of Famer Joe Montana to tie Vinny Testaverde for 12th on the all-time pa sing touchdowns list.MORE: Best fantasy waiver pickups for Week 2 While Roethlisberger found succe s against the Washington secondary, Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins was not as fortunate. Cousins went 30 of 43 for 329 yards without atouchdown and with two interceptions the first of which was his first athome in 253 pa s attempts.Washington was also held Clint Boling Jersey to just 55 rushing yards while Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams ran for 143 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries while filling in for the suspended Le'Veon Bell.The Steelers are a popular pick to reach the Super Bowl and looked the part Monday night while Roethlisberger played like the MVP-caliber quarterback many expect him to be.
