Steelers Film Room: Roethlisberger Connects Deep To Coates Against Bengals

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger certainly didn’t have a great performance in Sunday’s win over the Cincinatti Bengals and especially when it came to his deep passes during the game. For the game, Roethlisberger completed just 3 of his 9 deep passes thrown more than 15 yards past the line of…
