Scoring change gives Vikings 4th sack

PITTSBURGH -- Ben Roethlisberger can get sacked even during an off week.

A scoring change has given the Minnesota Vikings an additional sack of Roethlisberger during Pittsburgh's 27-17 victory on Sunday. Roethlisberger was sacked four times, giving him 20 for the season.

A play in which Roethlisberger was initially given a 1-yard loss on a run has been changed to a sack by Minnesota's Kevin Williams.

Roethlisberger is on pace to be sacked 46 times, as many times as he was dropped last season.

Roethlisberger has been sacked a league-high 212 times since beginning his career in 2004, 12 times more during that period than the Rams' Marc Bulger. No other quarterback has been sacked more than 174 times.
