The Pittsburgh Steelers checked a lot of items off their to-do list Monday night in MetLife Stadium.
First win. Check.
First road win. Check.
Undefeated season in tact. Check.
Getting Ben Roethlisberger back and used to the speed, and physicality, of the game. Check.
That last caveat is equally important to the aforementioned goals based on the fact Roethlisberger is so important to the overall success of the team. Use 2019 when Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges were called into duty as a blueprint for how important Roethlisberger is to not just the offense, but the team.
