Big Ben Roethlisberger’s trio of troubling interceptions vs. the Titans ended up costing the Steelers points on long drives – but luckily not the too-close-for-comfort 27-24 contest. The lingering effect of those picks could be the proof that Big Ben isn’t the same gun-slinging Steelers quarterback of old. The new Ben isn’t the same as the old Ben. The difference could be big, as in the absence of his once signature long-ball. Not only has been rare this season – it’s been off on a growing number of the few occasions Roethlisberger lets it rip. Bottom Line for Big Ben vs. the Titans: Roethlisbeger threw two passes longer than 20 yards. Both were intercepted.

Now comes the rested, rival Ravens and MVP Lamar Jackson. Ben and the Steelers just may need the long-ball to earn a win in Charm City. The question is – can 38-year-old Roethlisberger and his surgically repaired throwing arm deliver when it counts? I tackle this looming concern – plus all the Ravens-Steelers storylines – in this edition of the Steelers Update Podcast from PennLive. So listen up, Steelers fans!
