Research Notes

  • Philip Rivers outplayed Ben Roethlisberger on third downs Sunday as he had two touchdowns on such passes, and all 11 of his third-down completions went for first downs. Roethlisberger, who entered the game with a 94.5 Total QBR on third downs (best in NFL) compared to Rivers' 28.1 Total QBR (27th), completed less than 50 percent of his passes on third downs.

  • NEXT LEVEL: Ben Roethlisberger was under duress, sacked or hit while throwing on 19-of-48 (39.6 percent) dropbacks Sunday, the highest rate of pressure he has been under over the last three seasons. Roethlisberger's fourth-quarter interception under such pressure snapped a streak of 154 consecutive passes under duress or hit while throwing without being intercepted dating back to Week 1 of last season.

  • The Steelers sent at least five rushers on 19 of 43 dropbacks Sunday (44.2 percent), and Philip Rivers handled Pittsburgh's extra pressure well. Rivers completed 11-of-18 passes for 102 yards and a pair of touchdowns against added rushers. Rivers had averaged 9.0 yards per attempt against added pressure entering Sunday, (second best among qualified quarterbacks), but also had thrown interceptions every 21.6 attempts against added pressure (fourth worst).
