STEELERS MAUL PANTHERS
Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is hit by Carolina’s Eric Reid, who was ejected, at the end of a run in the second half of the Steelers’ 52-21 rout in Pittsburgh. Roethlisberger posted a perfect passer rating (158.3), completing 22 of 25 passes for 328 yards and five touchdowns (to JuJu Smith-Schuster, Antonio Brown, Vance McDonald, Jesse James and Jaylen Samuels). Christian McCaffrey scored all three Panthers touchdowns. Thursday night’s game ended too late for an expanded account to make this edition. Look for one at Richmond.com.
