Steelers could turn to no-huddle attack to boost passing game

PITTSBURGH -- Ben Roethlisberger is not a fan of "Thursday Night Football", but the short week might just afford the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback an advantage.

Running the no-huddle offense on a quick turnaround is easier than normal.

"Rather than install a bunch of new plays, you go with what you know," Roethlisberger said Tuesday in preparation for Thursday night's matchup with the Titans at Heinz Field.

Roethlisberger had a 2.8 passer rating in the first half of Sunday's 20-17 win against the Colts, accentuating the Steelers' struggles with the downfield passing game, at least for their standards.
