It appears any tension between Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown is a thing of the past.

The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver apologized for causing a distraction the last few days after a sideline tantrum Sunday, which saw him knock over a Gatorade tub in frustration. He finished the game with four catches for 34 yards.

Roethlisberger is also ready to move on, one day after calling the incident "unfortunate."

"He’s probably the best wide receiver in the game now, maybe that ever played," said Roethlisberger, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "We’re over it now. We’ve moved on to Jacksonville. Wednesday, it’s Jacksonville week. This is a really good defense. We don’t have time to think about anything else but that right now."

The pair will have a chance to get on the same page again Sunday when the Steelers host the Jacksonville Jaguars.
