When the Pittsburgh Steelers visit the Philadelphia Eagles, they will want the best results, of course, it would be better if the Steelers main quarterback Ben Roethlisberger does not consider retirement after games.
Roethlisberger was tackled eight times, which has been the most of his career, during 2008’s 15-6 loss to the Eagles.
“I left the airport after the game and drove home and thought about myself,” Ben said in an interview on Tuesday. “I asked myself ‘if you wanted to play like that, did you really want to play football, or just retire.'” That year Ben was 26 years old, then he came to his teammate Brett Keisel’ home and talked to drink all night. Four months later, Ben won the Super Bowl.
Ben was sacked 46 times that year, but the Steelers still won the Super Bowl, and now this offensive lineup is much better than that time. Ben was intercepted only two times this season.
Ben threw three touchdown passes in the driving rain to lead the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 24-16 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week two.
However, the Steelers is hard to beat the Eagles. The Steelers have never won the Eagles since 1965. Steelers and Eagles are currently two wins and zero losses, so this Sunday’s game will be very intense.
