The 38-year-old quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has made an outstanding return to the NFL after spending most of last season on the sidelines with a nasty elbow injury.
The Steelers are on a perfect 8-0 record after their Week 9 win against the Cowboys who were playing without Dak Prescott and Andy Dalton. But Roethlisberger is not allowing his teammates to get complacent.
“We know that everybody is coming for us. I don’t want to take any shots at anybody, but if you didn’t know who America’s Team was then you should’ve seen the stands and all the Terrible Towels.
“Dallas might be America’s Team but we are the World’s Team,” Roethlisberger told The Athletic’s Jon Machota.

The Steelers are on track to secure a playoff spot with a perfect record in the league this season. They could also match Bill Belichick’s 2007 New England Patriots, the only outfit that boasts of a perfect record in the regular season.
Only time will tell if Mike Tomlin can lead young stars such as Juju Smith-Schuster and Chase Claypool to NFL glory. Can the Steelers justify the ‘world’s team’ tag and win the elusive Vince Lombardi Trophy this season?
