"He is totally the catalyst of their offense and their football team," Lewis said Thursday, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer. "He makes (Chiefs linebacker) Derrick Johnson miss in the pocket last week and throws a perfect pass to a very well-covered tight end. He extends the play enough that the tight end was able to come open late, and he makes a perfect pass where only one guy can catch it. Those are things that maybe go unnoticed at times but are truly fine football plays."
Roethlisberger's numbers aren't in the same stratosphere as Rodgers', but the 29-year-old QB is quietly having another very productive season in what has been an underrated career. Through 11 games, Roethlisberger has thrown for 3,070 yards, 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. His 92.7 passer rating ranks him seventh in the league.
