PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger’s initial pass went for a touchdown. His final did a same. And in between a Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback and his impassioned group put together systematic 52-21 dismantling of Carolina on Thursday night that left small doubt about their abyss and their talent regardless of either Le’Veon Bell ever shows adult for work or not.

Ten opposite Steelers overwhelmed a turn on offense. Six of them scored. None of them were named Bell. While a three-time Pro Bowl using behind tweeted his thoughts from home while watchful — and watchful — to pointer his one-year authorization tender, Pittsburgh ripped off a fifth true feat with overwhelming ease.

“Really large opening opposite a unequivocally good group on a brief week so there is a lot to be unapproachable of,” Steelers conduct manager Mike Tomlin said. “But we are substantially not that good.”

Maybe not, though Pittsburgh (6-2-1) looked any bit a partial of legitimate contender in a AFC, maybe for a initial time this season.

Roethlisberger finished 22 of 25 passes for 328 yards and 5 touchdowns while posting a ideal quarterback rating of 158.3. James Conner, who has filled in capably during Bell’s self-imposed sabbatical, ran for 65 yards and a measure before being evaluated for a concussion late.

“I’m not going to criticism on someone who’s not in a locker room right now,” Roethlisberger said.

And because bother? For 3 hours on Thursday night Pittsburgh looked any bit as manly though Bell as it did with him. If he returns, they insist they’ll acquire him with open arms. If he doesn’t, they are vigilant on gripping a sight rolling.

The Panthers (6-3) saw their three-game winning strain come to an sudden hindrance in a city where they’ve never won. Carolina fell to 0-4 all-time in Pittsburgh and was never unequivocally in it after a Steelers scored 21 points in a game’s initial 11 minutes.

Cam Newton finished 23 of 29 for 193 yards and a span of flips to Christian McCaffrey that a second-year using behind incited into scores, though Newton’s showdown with Roethlisberger never materialized. The Steelers sacked Newton 5 times and frequency let him get comfortable. McCaffrey finished with 138 yards sum offense (77 yards rushing, 61 yards receiving) and accounted for all 3 Panther touchdowns though it wasn’t scarcely enough.

“We had a lot of a noses draining early on,” Newton said. “We’ve got to stop it and keep things going in a favor. We usually got outplayed today.”

Newton didn’t assistance matters when he threw off his behind feet out of a Carolina finish section while perplexing to equivocate removing sacked in a initial quarter. Pittsburgh linebacker Vince Williams raced underneath a floater and returned it 17 yards for a touchdown to give a Steelers a 14-7 lead they never came tighten to relinquishing.

Roethlisberger’s rainbow to Brown put Pittsburgh adult 31-14 during a half and when Roethlisberger found Vance McDonald in a behind on a finish section on a Steelers’ initial expostulate of a second half, a rival apportionment of a dusk was over. Pittsburgh’s 52 points matched a many ever surrendered by a Panthers in authorization history. Carolina authorised a same sum in a 52-9 detriment to Oakland on Dec. 24, 2000.

“They did some good things opposite us,” Panthers conduct manager Ron Rivera said. “We done too many mistakes early on to give ourselves an event to win a football game.”

REID TARGETS ROETHLISBERGER

Carolina reserve Eric Reid was ejected in a third entertain after being called for targeting when he dived during Roethlisberger’s conduct as a Pittsburgh quarterback was shifting during a finish of an 18-yard scramble.

Several Steelers, many of them descent linemen, took difference with a strike and a brief scrum ensued. Pittsburgh core Maurkice Pouncey pronounced Roethlisberger offering to compensate any fines a linemen might accumulate for adhering adult for him.

Reed, sealed by Carolina in September, walked over to Roethlisberger and apologized before being escorted to a locker room.

“I know a NFL is perplexing to strengthen quarterbacks though when they’re using a turn they’re using backs,” Reid said. “I’m not meditative that ‘It’s Ben, don’t tackle him.’ There’s a man using with a ball, so I’m doing my job.”

PAYING TRIBUTE
