BIG BEN NOT THE SAME ON THE ROAD
I’ve mentioned it in several posts this week and that’s that Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers are not the same team on the road as they are at home.
On the road this season, Big Ben has a completion percentage of 59.4 percent and has thrown only nine touchdowns with eight picks.
When looking at Roethlisberger’s home/away splits for the 2016 season, it’s obvious that Big Ben struggles a bit on the road. While he’s only thrown for 11 less yards on the road than he has at home this season, his completion percentage and touchdown/interception ratio numbers are noteworthy for sure.
At home this season, Roethlisberger has completed 70.8 percent of his passes and thrown 20 touchdowns to just five interceptions.
On the road this season, Big Ben has a completion percentage of 59.4 percent and has thrown only nine touchdowns with eight picks. The numbers are astoundingly different and the Chiefs need to make sure Roethlisberger continues to struggle on the road.
This could end up being nothing obviously, but the Steelers as a whole haven’t been that great on the road. They went 5-3 on the road in the regular season and one of those wins came against a team with a winning record (the Redskins in week one).
The Steelers haven’t played a tough team on the road this season and come out victorious, so that’s a good thing for the Chiefs.
