Steelers vs Packers: Check out Ben Roethlisberger’s 400th career passing touchdown

Ben Roethlisberger joins elite company with his first touchdown of the day.

[mm-video type=playlist id=01eqbydbzmnr1bhxef player_id=none image=]

The Pittsburgh Steelers first touchdown of the day was significant for a number of reasons. First, the beautiful throw from Ben Roethlisberger to Diontae Johnson broke a long streak of scoreless first quarters going all the way back to Week 10 of the 2020 season.

Secondly, it marks the 400th passing touchdown for Roethlisberger. Only eight players in NFL history have thrown for 400 or more touchdowns and Roethlisberger joins an elite group.

Johnson missed last week’s game with a knee injury but made his presence felt immediately. He is the only Steelers receiver who can consistently get separation from defenders and thanks to a beautiful throw by Roethlisberger he cruised into the end zone to give the Steelers a 7-0 lead.

Steelers vs Packers preview: Who has the advantage in Week 4?

Who has the advantage this week in Steelers vs Packers?

This week, we sat down with Packers Wire editor Zach Kruse and broke down the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers in terms of which team has the edge in a variety of categories. It’s pretty clear in most cases, Green Bay has the edge but if this season has taught Steelers fans anything, expect the unexpected.

Steelers vs Packers: What to expect when Pittsburgh is on defense

The Steelers defense is looking to get back to pressuring the quarterback this week.

The last two weeks, the Pittsburgh Steelers defense has not played like the elite unit as advertised. This has been largely due to injuries. But this week, against the Green Bay Packers, the Steelers are getting outside linebackers T.J. Watt and Alex Highsmith back and this changes everything. Here’s what we expect to see when the Steelers are on defense.

Steelers vs Packers: What to expect when Pittsburgh is on offense

Can the Steelers offense finally get back on track this week?

Through three games, the Pittsburgh Steleers offense has been stuck in neutral. Struggles along the offensive line have hamstrung the entire group. This week the struggling Steelers offense has to find a way to keep pace with the Green Bay Packers.

Here’s what we expect to see when the Steelers have the football.

(Not so) home sweet home for the Steelers

Playing at home hasn’t been an advantage for the Steelers so far this season as they come limping off two consecutive losses in their first two games at Heinz Field.

Playing at home has not been an advantage for the Pittsburgh Steelers so far this season as they come limping off two consecutive losses in their first two games at Heinz Field.

“There’s going to be a test that comes in Lambeau Field in the former Green Bay Packers,” Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said recently.  “So, we’re working hard with an edge to get better, but we’re also working hard with an edge to prepare ourselves for that challenge — that’s a significant one.”

Home field has typically been an advantage for the Steelers — dating back to 2019, they are 12-5 at Heinz Field and 8-9 away. In 2020, Pittsburgh was 7-1 at home; this season they dropped two consecutive matchups.

Let’s hope the Steelers can get things rolling again away from the confines of Heinz Field. After Green Bay, Pittsburgh again plays host for two straight games with visits from the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks.

Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers take on Aaron Rodgers’ Packers today at 4:25 eastern.

Steelers vs Packers: Key matchups for Pittsburgh this week

The Steelers need to win these matchups if they hope to pull off an upset this week.

If you assume the Pittsburgh Steelers cannot beat the Green Bay Packers this week, you haven’t been paying attention to the NFL so far this season. It won’t be easy but the Steelers can win this game but these matchups will be the key.

2 Steelers elevated to 53-man roster for showdown with Packers

In light of the Chase Claypool injury, 2 offensive players have been elevated from the practice squad.

With a hamstring injury holding Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool out of their contest with the Green Bay Packers, Cody White has been elevated from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.

And the already shaky offensive line unit is also dealing with injuries to tackle Chuks Okorafor and reserve tackle Rashaad Coward. Offensive lineman Chaz Green has been elevated for depth behind presumed starting tackle Joe Haeg.

Steelers remain 6.5-point underdogs vs the Packers

Let’s take a look at the betting line for Steelers vs Packers.

[mm-video type=playlist id=01eqbydbzmnr1bhxef player_id=none image=]

If a 6.5-point spread in a Pittsburgh Steelers game sounds familiar it should. The Steelers were 6.5-point underdogs to the Buffalo Bills in Week One and the Steelers were 6.5-point favorites over the Las Vegas Raiders in Week Two.

If there is any silver lining to Tipico Sportsbook making the Steelers 6.5-point underdogs to the Green Bay Packers this week, it’s that the two previous times 6.5 was the line this season, it didn’t go as planned.

It’s hard to be inspired if you are a Steelers fan this week. The team had two ugly losses in a row and the offense seems to be in complete disarray. However, the Steelers are getting several guys back this week who missed last week and being in a near must-win game will give Pittsburgh ample motivation to win this week.
