“That Starts With Me”- Ben Roethlisberger Takes Responsibility for the Unacceptable Defeat Against Buffalo Bills

December 15, 2020 3:40 pm

On Sunday night, the Pittsburgh Steelers went up against the Buffalo Bills. In the first 2 quarters of the game, it seemed like they had a slight upper hand because they scored 3 points in the first half.

However, the game changed entirely after the first half. Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger blames no one but himself; much more so because this marked their second consecutive loss after an otherwise spectacular season.

“If I don’t play good enough football, then I need to hang it up. I still feel like I can do enough things to help this team win football games, and I’ll do everything I can to get us back on track,” said Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

This was their second consecutive defeat. The Steelers knew how tough it would be for them to get into the Playoffs. There weren’t many signs that are in favor of them going to the Playoffs if things do not improve.

The odds of that happening seem tough based on an inconsistent run, injuries, and continued dropped passes by the receivers.

“Offensively, we’re not very good, whose pick-six near the end of the first half sparked the Bills. We’re not playing good football and that starts with me. So, we all need to look in the mirror and understand that we all need to be better.

“I think that we will be. This is a team that has a lot of resilience and understands what it takes to win football games, and understands what time of year it is, and understands that the way we’re playing right now is unacceptable,” said quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Can Steelers make the Playoffs?

Right now, winning the Playoffs seems like a distant dream. The Steelers are being asked if they’ll even win their division. Now the Steelers go up for the season finale that is on the 3rd of January 2021.

They have ample time to prepare and be ready for the challenges. The Steelers’ major strength used to be their defense, which was lacking this season.

“Defenses can play pass if you can’t run the ball who was 21 of 37 for 187 yards with two scores and two interceptions. We need to do better at being a more balanced offense and we need to do better at executing the plays that are called,” said Roethlisberger.

This Sunday was very much meant for the Bills, especially Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs. There is a slight chance that the Steelers might make it to the Playoffs, but how far they would go is the real question.
