Ben Roethlisberger has perfect response to Steelers' struggles vs. Patriots


It's no secret the New England Patriots have owned the Pittsburgh Steelers throughout the Bill Belichick's and Tom Brady's tenure in Foxboro.

In fact, since Mike Tomlin became head coach of the Steelers before the 2007 season, Brady is 7-1 with 23 touchdown passes and one interception versus Pittsburgh. Brady also is 3-0 in his career against the Steelers in AFC Championship Games, winning in 2001, 2004 and 2016. 

The two sides will square off Sunday for a Week 15 matchup in Pittsburgh, where the Steelers need a win to keep their hopes of winning the AFC North (and making the playoffs) alive. The Patriots are clinging to the No. 2 seed in the AFC.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's record against the Patriots when Brady plays is a lackluster 2-8, but he had a great response Tuesday when asked about his team's lack of success versus New England.

Hard to argue with Big Ben there.

And the stakes couldn't be higher for the Steelers on Sunday as they try to avoid a fourth consecutive loss and overcome their struggles against the Patriots.
