Steelers Ben Roethlisberger, James Harrison Receive Top PFF Marks For Play Against Jets

Despite him throwing two interceptions and having being off target on a few passes Sunday in the loss to the New York Jets, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (2.2) received the highest team offensive grade for his efforts from Pro Football Focus.offensive grade

Roethlisberger was 30-of-43 in the game for 343 yards with a lone touchdown pass to go along with his two interceptions. One of those two picks was a horribly thrown football into triple coverage to wide receiver Markus Wheaton (0.3).

Although he started slow, Steelers tight end Heath Miller (1.2) also graded out positively for the Steelers on offense. Miller caught three passes for 29 yards.

According to PFF, Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey (-1.7) had his second-worst game of the season against the Jets. In all likelihood, Pouncey’s penalty and fastball errant snap probably didn’t help his matters.

Wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (-1.4) also graded out poorly on offense.

Defensively for the Steelers, linebacker James Harrison (2.2) received the highest grade from PFF for his play against the Jets. They credit Harrison with two hits, two hurries and three stops in the game.

Safety Will Allen (-3.1) first start of the season didn’t go well in the eyes of PFF. Most of his problems seemed to be against the run in their eyes.

Linebacker Jason Worilds (-2.2) also graded out poorly despite registering 1.5 sacks and three total stops in the game.
