Steelers QB Roethlisberger takes blame for season

PITTSBURGH — Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger says despite a statistically successful year, his play was a key factor in Pittsburgh (7-8) failing to make the playoffs for only the fourth time since 2001.

“A lot of it just has to do with me not playing well enough down the stretch,” Roethlisberger said. “Fourth-quarter drives or last-minute throws, I’m just not making it happen, so my best answer would be that I just didn’t play well enough.”

The Steelers controlled their playoff fate until a 13-10 loss to Cincinnati on Sunday eliminated them from the postseason.
