Just when the Big Ben and Antonio Brown connection was reaching maximum force, the worst happened.
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger was carted off the field with an injury after getting sacked.

Roethlisberger got an MRI and it was revealed that he had a sprained foot and would miss “a few weeks”, according to NFL reporter Albert Breer. He is ruled out for next week and the Steelers have a bye week after that. The 12-year veteran already missed four games this season with a knee injury. Sunday was only his second game back since the injury.
The Steelers pulled off a 38-35 victory thanks to receiver Antonio Brown’s franchise best 284 yards. Pittsburgh now moves to 5-4 on the season and with the Cincinatti Bengals leading the division with an 8-0 record, the Steelers will have to use the wild card to sneak in.
