    Clock Strikes Zero on Big Ben

    Roethlisberger.jpgWhat happened to the Steelers on Monday night?  After posting a 4th-quarter rally against the Dolphins for a 28-17 win in the NFL home opener last Thursday night, they stink out the joint against the Jaguars in Jacksonville last night, losing 9-0 on just 167 yards total offense and two rally-killing interceptions in the 4th quarter. Backup quarterback Charlie Batch must've been peeing his pants in frustration after engineering the victory in Week 1, only to see Ben Roethlisberger return from emergency appendectomy surgery with barely two weeks of recovery time to play like he was still on local anesthesia. Two games after winning Super Bowl XIV, the Steelers hardly resembled world champions, suffering their first shutout since 2003 and falling a game behind the Ravens and Bengals in what promises to be an AFC North dogfight. The Jaguars, meanwhile, send a message to the AFC that they are a force to be reckoned with, perhaps enough so to give the favored Indianapolis Colts a run for their money for the AFC South division title.
