Not many critics and analysts could have predicted that Mike Tomlin’s Pittsburgh Steelers would be undefeated in 2020 heading into Week 11. The return of veteran NFL quarterback Ben Roethlisberger boosted the Steelers beyond expectations.

The 38-year-old has thrown for 2,200+ yards with 22 passing touchdowns against just 4 interceptions this season. He is slowly gaining traction in the NFL MVP race alongside Russell Wilson, Kyler Murray, Aaron Rodgers and reigning Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is not getting complacent despite his team’s 9-0 start to the season. “Personally, the goal isn’t to go undefeated, right? The goal is to win the Super Bowl. We’re just going one week at a time.
“We’re not worried about anything other than this week. You look at the past history of this game, and it hasn’t been pretty for us.
“We have yet to play a really good game against these guys. I’m hungry to come out and get this game,” Roethlisberger said via an online press meet earlier today.

The Steelers are sitting comfortably at the summit of the AFC North Division table above the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns. They are in a prime position in their division and may seal a playoff spot sooner rather than later.

In addition to that, the Steelers could also match the record set by Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots in 2007. Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, and the rest of the Patriots created history that year when they became the first NFL team to go undefeated in the regular season.
Of course, they did not win the Super Bowl that season, thanks to a memorable display by Eli Manning and the New York Giants.
