Ben Roethlisberger Week 13 Fantasy Update: Pittsburgh Quarterback Throws For Two Touchdowns In Win Over Cincinnati

With a broken thumb on his throwing hand, Ben Roethlisberger led the Pittsburgh Steelers to their ninth win of the season with a 35-7 rout of the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Roethlisberger finished the day with the two touchdowns, both to Mike Wallace, and no interceptions. He completed 15 of 23 attempts for 176 yards, as the Steelers built a big lead in the first half and tried to move the clock for much of the second half.

Wallace gave Big Ben fantasy owners a huge assist on the second touchdown, as he took a quick screen and burst through the Bengals defense breaking several tackles for the touchdown. It was a 19 yard TD pass, but almost all 19 yards came after the catch on a great individual effort by Wallace.
