Week 9 NFL Power Rankings

Tom Brady

13. Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 14)

No offense in football is as hot as the Steelers‘. Ben Roethlisberger is making history with his offensive output, and it’s not a coincidence that now the Steelers are in a second-place tie with rival Baltimore. The difference: the young Pittsburgh wide receivers are stepping up and making plays, growing up before our eyes.

What to know: Big Ben’s tremendous production of late will go down in the record books. Roethlisberger became the NFL’s first quarterback with multiple career 500-yard games in NFL history. He also set Steelers franchise records with 522 yards and six touchdowns (ESPN Stats & Info/Elias Sports).
