The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Atlanta Falcons 27-20 Sunday at the Georgia Dome and below is the passing chart for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger from that game.
Roethlisberger was the king of the short pass Sunday against the Falcons as 17 of his 27 completions were thrown five or less yards past the line of scrimmage in the air. Additionally, six of his completions in the game came behind the line of scrimmage.
As far as Roethlisberger’s deep pass attempts against the Falcons, he was a stellar 6-of-10 (60%) on balls thrown 16 or more yards past the line of scrimmage in the air.
Not included in this chart is the late incomplete pass to running back Le’Veon Bell that was wiped out by a penalty on the Falcons defense. In addition, I did not include Roethlisberger’s lone spike near the end of the first half.
