On Sunday, Ben Roethlisberger did what he does best as an elite NFL quarterback, throwing for two touchdowns and running for another, leading the Steelers to an unlikely, season-sustaining win against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. But on this Thursday night, he is at his North Hills home, doing some nice work as a father, changing a dirty diaper. Wife Ashley is off to the Penguins-Minnesota Wild game, the highlight of a girls night out. Roethlisberger is alone with Ben Jr., who turned 1 Nov. 21. The two are having a blast. Roethlisberger does the diaper thing with the same precision he threw the touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes to win Super Bowl XLIII.
Roethlisberger completed 29-of-45 pass attempts for 367 yards with four touchdowns and zero interceptions for a season-high passer rating of 119.4. He also led his team on a 16-play, 97-yard touchdown drive in the fourth quarter to take a 30-27 lead. It marked the 29th time in his career during the regular season that he led his team to victory after trailing or being tied in the fourth quarter or overtime.
