Before Sunday’s game, Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense had not gone to the no huddle offense on the road this season. That all changed in the third quarter.
“[Bruce Arians] came to me and said ‘Do you want to do it?” Roethlisberger said, “and I said, ‘Absolutely, you don’t have to ask me twice.’”
Roethlisberger is certainly a fan of the no huddle offense and has done his fair share of lobbying to go that route. Obviously he’d be up for the task.
It certainly worked out well for the Steelers. They managed to generate a nice drive that was capped off with a Rashard Mendenhall 9-yard touchdown run.
“That was kind of the mentality, let’s go no-huddle and see if we can get down there, let’s answer,” Roethlisberger said. “We take pride in wanting to be the best and that was our time to do it, to step up and score. We always want to answer.
“We needed [the no-huddle]. We did a good job with it last week and it was just time, time to step up and change the pace a little bit and I think we spread it around pretty good in that no-huddle.”
