2-0 or 0-2? Steelers, Roethlisberger eye improvement

PITTSBURGH (AP) Judging by the tone of Ben Roethlisberger's voice, it was hard to tell if the Pittsburgh Steelers are 2-0 or 0-2.

No matter how the questions were framed following a 26-21 victory over Denver on Sunday that gave the Steelers their best start since 2017, the club's longtime quarterback kept turning each answer into a referendum of sorts on his play. While quick to heap praise upon his young wide receivers - including rookie Chase Claypool and budding second-year star Diontae Johnson - Roethlisberger believes he needs to knock off whatever rust might remain from his injury-marred 2019 quickly.

"I didn't connect with guys when they were open," Roethlisberger said. "I just didn't play well enough."
