Roethlisberger off to red-hot start for Steelers

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is off to the best start of his 12-year career.

Roethlisberger ranks second in the NFL in yards passing and is the only quarterback in the league to top 300 yards in each of his team's first two games.

Tight end Heath Miller says Pittsburgh's offense belongs to Roethlisberger now.

Roethlisberger threw for three scores in last week's romp over San Francisco and Pittsburgh reached the end zone six times in all, with all of the scores coming while working out of the no-huddle that Roethlisberger commands with ease.

Pittsburgh (1-1) plays at St. Louis (1-1) on Sunday.
