EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eli Manning and the New York Giants could not provide a happy ending Sunday for the storm-ravaged fans who came to see them play the Pittsburgh Steelers at MetLife Stadium. "There are so many bigger things going on around here that what we do is not as important as real life," Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said after throwing for two touchdowns in a 24-20 comeback victory. "My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone else who are going through so much.

One day, a disheveled young woman, in a cold police interrogation room with her face blurred to protect her identity, is on tape accusing Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of unspeakable acts and taking what didn't belong to him. The next day, a boyish-looking Roethlisberger, in a bucolic setting at his family's farmhouse, is telling KDKA-TV sports anchor Bob Pompeani that he never intended "to gain the whole world and lose my soul. " Has there ever been more jarring, contradictory video?

The Ben Factor is taking effect. That is what Terry Hoeppner, coach at Miami (Ohio), calls the dynamic gripping parts of southwestern Ohio, which has started to become Pittsburgh Steelers country. The reason? With steady play and a strong arm, rookie quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of the Steelers, a 6-foot-4, 241-pounder who played his college football in Oxford, Ohio, has been one of the NFL's most impressive rookies. "The town's abuzz," said Hoeppner, Roethlisberger's college coach.

TO THE writer who referred to "the same fans that booed Santa": A simple Google search will lead you to plenty of protesters against the continued employment of Ben Roethlisberger and Rick Pitino. The first team to give Donte Stallworth a "second chance" will also experience an enormous backlash. You live in Philadelphia, so Michael Vick is going to seem like he's the only one receiving any backlash. Ryan Cullen, Philadelphia

PITTSBURGH - Ben Roethlisberger played through a painful left leg injury to lead the Steelers to a 14-3 victory over the Cleveland Browns last night. Roethlisberger passed for 280 yards and two touchdowns, including a 79-yard scoring strike to Antonio Brown with 2:52 remaining. Roethlisberger went to the locker room for X-rays following a gruesome second-quarter sack but returned to start the second half, passing for 178 yards after the break. Pittsburgh (10-3) moved a half-game ahead of Baltimore in the race for the AFC North title.

PITTSBURGH - The Steelers escaped with a victory. The health of their franchise quarterback is another matter entirely. The Steelers edged the woeful Kansas City Chiefs 16-13 in overtime on Monday night but lost Ben Roethlisberger for most of the second half - and perhaps a lot longer - with a right shoulder injury. Roethlisberger left the game early in the third quarter after getting slammed to the turf by Kansas City linebackers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston and did not return.

INDIANAPOLIS - Shaun Suisham kicked a 38-yard field goal with four seconds left Sunday night, lifting the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 23-20 victory at Indianapolis. It was a wild game that turned three times in the final 51/2 minutes and was far closer than most expected. The Steelers (2-1) struggled as Ben Roethlisberger lost two fumbles and threw an interception in one 11-minute first-half span. But the Colts (0-3) proved hard to shake off. Joseph Addai's 6-yard run capped an 80-yard drive for a 20-20 tie with 2 minutes, 9 seconds to go. Roethlisberger then came back with a 60-yard march to set up the winning score.

THE STEELERS don't lose at home, and they absolutely don't lose at home to NFC teams. But nothing lasts forever, as Phillies fans found out this season. Some of the Pittsburgh defensive stalwarts aren't getting younger, quicker or healthier. Half a decade ago, the top teams in the AFC clearly were better than the top teams in the NFC. Not sure that's the case anymore. The Eagles' offense took an important step forward when it didn't turn the ball over against the Giants. Now it needs to solidify that gain, and add some efficiency to the formula, scoring touchdowns instead of field goals.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said he got caught up in being a caricature called Big Ben, not the grounded player and person he once was, leading to his off-field problems - and affecting his play. In his first detailed interviews since a Georgia college student accused him of sexually assaulting her in a nightclub bathroom on March 5, Roethlisberger told Pittsburgh TV stations KDKA and WTAE that he expects to be booed this season. He also apologized extensively for his actions, and promised to become the role model he should have been throughout his career.

PITTSBURGH - After the Eagles had five takeaways in their 17-9 preseason win over the Tampa Bay Bucs last week, somebody asked defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz whether he puts particular emphasis on forcing turnovers. "Well, you can emphasize it all you want," he said. "You can do drills all you want. But you've got to have players (who can force turnovers). Standing up and giving a speech or putting a PowerPoint up or making an emphasis in a drill doesn't get it done on the field.

A year ago, Carson Wentz, a tall, strong-armed quarterback from North Dakota State whom the Eagles are expected to select Thursday with the second pick in the NFL draft, was just another name on a list that included a dozen other draft hopefuls at that position - and he wasn't very far up the list, either. Things can change quickly, however, and they certainly did for Wentz as he parlayed a title-winning season with a strong performance in the Senior Bowl and impressive showings at the NFL combine and private workouts.

THE STRONGEST argument in favor of everything that you have witnessed over the last month came about 12 minutes into Howie Roseman's question and answer session on Thursday night. After spending much of the news conference extolling the blue-collar virtues of the man he selected with the No. 2 pick in the draft, the Eagles' football operations chief made an important point when he noted that a team that finds a long-term solution at quarterback does so for a very long term. "It's not a decision just for the moment," Roseman said after pointing out that a team that finds a long-term answer at quarterback can go through multiple cycles of building around that position.

BRONCOS (-7) over Steelers Goin' down in flames if Ben Roethlisberger can pull of a miracle with his separated shoulder and some torn ligaments. I'm dead in the water. Pittsburgh's offense lives for the vertical game, with an amazing set of speedy receivers. Short routes and little bubble screens? Nah! Not gonna phase the wicked Denver defense. And speaking of Pitt's wideouts, Antonio Brown is still not 100 percent, while running back DeAngelo Williams is still listed as questionable.

Stats, trends and other friends as the daily leagues take over fantasy football here in the NFL's postseason. Quarterbacks Alex Smith has had fewer than 200 yards passing in each of the last five games, which makes him quite touchdown-dependent. He threw for three TDs against Houston in the season opener. Ben Roethlisberger has thrown multiple interceptions in three consecutive games for the first time in nine years. In two games against Cincy, he had four picks and one touchdown pass.

Week 16 was most notable for its upsets, from the screeching halt of Carolina's drive for perfection to the Patriots' bungled handling of the overtime coin toss. Somehow, the Ravens mustered their divisional-rival powers to ground Pittsburgh's passing attack while the Rams knocked the surging Seahawks offense off-stride for the first time since Week 10. And while the Cardinals' ninth consecutive victory wasn't a surprise, the way they humiliated the Packers' offense sure was. Each of these unexpected outcomes yielded disappointing fantasy results for many of the players who had propelled their owners to the championship round.

Sam Bradford, Eagles: He's an interesting mid-round pick for someone who has one of the top-three QBs. If he flourishes, Bradford could be trade bait. Tom Brady, Patriots: Whoever makes the stupidest testicle joke at the draft has to buy the pizza. Brady will sit the first four games for deflating footballs. For now. Drew Brees, Saints: His yardage and touchdowns have declined each of the last four seasons, but that's only because he was playing at such a ridiculous level.

Who's that under center in Pittsburgh and what have they done with Ben Roethlisberger? That can't be the Big Ben who has cracked the top 10 fantasy QBs in just three of his first 10 seasons. That's not the same guy who has followed nearly every masterful fantasy performance throughout his career with a dud the next week. I know it can't be him, because who else could pass for 522 yards and six TDs and still be benched by half his owners the next game? Roethlisberger isn't even owned in about 15 percent of all fantasy leagues.

IF YOU WERE LOOKING for a reason to believe the Eagles' pass rush would be better this season, you didn't find it in the first two preseason games. They notched only three sacks against the Bears and Patriots, none against the No. 1 offensive units. Yes, they seldom blitzed. Yes, defensive coordinator Bill Davis was more concerned with evaluating young edge-rushers such as rookie first-round pick Marcus Smith and Travis Long than he was with his unit's sack total. But when you're coming off a season in which you had only 37 sacks and finished 31st in the league in sacks per pass play, fans tend to get a little anxious for a sign that things are going to get better.
