The Pittsburgh Steelers have had one heck of a week, or the entire season for that matter. The drama-filled 2017 Steelers season was started with Ben Roethlisberger hinting at retirement, Le’Veon Bell holding out of the preseason, Antonio Brown throwing Gatorade coolers on the sideline, Martavis Bryant’s social media nonsense and one-game benching, Marcus Gilbert’s suspension for PED use and now Mike Tomlin’s comments about looking ahead to the New England Patriots.

Sheesh...that is a lot.

For every one of these mini, or major, distractions, players have had to answer a myriad of questions regarding the topic of the week.

This week Ben Roethlisberger talked about a lot of very interesting topics at his weekly media session. Topics like:

  • Whether he, and the team, are looking ahead to the Patriots game
  • If he watches other NFL games when the team plays a night game
  • Why he feels the Steelers are so good in prime time contests
  • How the Steelers offense is just starting to get rolling behind the passing game
  • and a lot more...

Take a look at the video below to hear the franchise quarterback field questions from the local and national media leading up to the Steelers vs. Bengals game on Monday Night Football in Week 13.
