2014 Week 18 vs BAL (31 / 45 / 334 / 1 / 2 pass, 2 / 16 / 0 rush)

Without Le'Veon Bell, it was evident that the Steelers would lean heavily on the passing game, so it was no surprise to see Ben Roethlisberger throw the ball 45 times against the Ravens. Roethlisberger was heavily pressured throughout the evening by the league's best pass rushing unit; the Ravens sacked Roethlisberger 5 times for a combined loss of 37 yards, which represented the Steeler offensive line's worst showing of the season. Due to the consistent pressure applied by the Ravens' defensive front, Roethlisberger was often throwing off-balance, over defenders, and while escaping a collapsing pocket; it was this pressure that led to two key Roethlisberger interceptions, only his third multi-interception game of the season. His first interception came deep in Steelers' territory when Big Ben found himself under extreme pressure and dumped an outlet pass to Ben Tate, who tipped the pass into the knees of Ravens' future Hall-of-Famer, Terrell Suggs; the interception would prove to be costly because the Ravens scored a touchdown on the following play, which put the Steelers into a two-score deficit late in the game. Roethlisberger did throw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Dri Archer late in the game, but offensive tackle Kelvin Beachum was called for holding on the play, which negated the score; Roethlisberger would be sacked on the following play and he was pulled from the game due to concerns of a concussion. He was quickly cleared to return to the game (three plays later), only to throw his second interception on a pass into triple coverage in the endzone, which should have been thrown away. Roethlisberger's only touchdown pass on the books came on a 6-yard out route to rookie WR Martavis Bryant in the fourth quarter; on the previous play, a Ben Roethlisberger-Antonio Brown touchdown was nullified by instant replay. The duo (Roethlisberger-Brown) had another potential TD negated in the second quarter when Brown was pushed out of bounds in the endzone before getting both feet down.
