Ben Roethlisberger throws for 522 yards in win

The New England Patriots weren't the only team to post 51 points on Sunday.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, which have been up and down all season, exploded for a huge game Sunday afternoon, defeating the Indianapolis Colts 51-23. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had a career day, completing 40 of 49 passes for 522 yards and six touchdowns.

The Colts' defense, which shut out the Bengals a week ago, never had an answer for Big Ben and the Pittsburgh offense. Receiver Antonio Brown hauled in 10 catches for 133 yards and two touchdowns, and tight end Heath Miller caught seven passes for 112 yards and a score.

Receiver Martavis Bryant had a nice day with five grabs, 83 yards and two touchdowns. Receiver Markus Wheaton also had a touchdown, along with five catches for 56 yards.

It was a big win for the Steelers, which were able to move back into a tie for second place in the AFC North with the Baltimore Ravens, which lost to Cincinnati. The Steelers and Ravens will play this week in an important divisional matchup. In Week 2, the Ravens defeated the Steelers 26-6.
