Ben Roethlisberger chides Jaguars for trash talk, but gets the last laugh

Ben Roethlisberger had a tough time against the Jaguars’ defense most of the game Sunday, throwing three interceptions, which made the Steelers 20-point rally for a 20-16 win that much sweeter.

And the big quarterback scored the game winner himself, with a rough 1-yard run, barely getting into the end zone.

That touchdown capped an improbable comeback for the Steelers, who lost to the Jaguars twice last season, including in the playoffs. Afterward, Roethlisberger couldn’t resist getting in a jab at the Jaguars for trash talking.

“They are a really good defense. They like to talk a lot — before the game, during the game,” Roethlisberger said. “But I’m carrying the game ball home.”

By the way, Sunday marked the 41st time Roethlisberger has led a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime, tied with John Elway for sixth-most by any quarterback since the NFL-AFL merger.
