Leftwich to start vs. Ravens

Posted by Teresa Varley on November 14, 2012 – 8:50 am


Quarterback Byron Leftwich will start Sunday night against the Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field, replacing injured Ben Roethlisberger.

Roethlisberger sprained the sternoclavicular (SC) joint in his right shoulder against the Kansas City Chiefs when he was sacked by linebacker Justin Houston in the third quarter.

Leftwich replaced Roethlisberger, going 7-for-14 for 73 yards.

This will be Leftwich’s first start for the Steelers. His last start came in 2009 when he started three games while with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Going to be a tough effort but if everyone steps up we can win this one. We have won with Ben out before.

    As Long as the rest of the team does there part we will be fine. Defense, Special teams, Running Backs, receivers and especially the O-line. They went 3-1 and made it to the Super Bowl when Ben missed 4 games in 2010.
