The Pittsburgh Steelers have rolled to a 10-0 start, bringing with it the talk of a perfect season.
The Steelers have six games left to achieve the milestone, but quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said the team is focused on much bigger things than a spotless regular season.
"We're not chasing perfection in terms of a perfect 16-0. We're chasing Lombardis. That's the most important thing for us," Roethlisberger said, per Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Roethlisberger already has two Super Bowl rings in his collection, but they came in 2005 and 2008. Now in his 17th season, this could be the 38-year-old's best chance at adding another championship trophy.
To do so, Big Ben believes the Steelers' offense needs to play at a higher level, though it's fourth in the league in scoring while averaging 29.8 points per game.
"We got to put more points on the board," Roethlisberger said. "I know what the scoreboard says, but there were too many times we punted and didn't do enough. Offensively, we're happy we got the win, but we know we have to be better."
