Steelers rue missed opportunities during uneven 2018
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger didn't want to get into hypotheticals.
Maybe because doing so would only make the Pittsburgh Steelers' painful late swoon all the more painful.
"Would've, could've, should've," Roethlisberger said after Pittsburgh's season ended a half-game shy of a fifth straight postseason berth. "I can sit here and say 'Yeah, we'd be dangerous in the playoffs.' But we didn't make it, so it doesn't matter."

Steelers look to clean up mistakes after sloppy loss
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger called the interception that ended Pittsburgh's six-game winning streak fluky.
On the surface, the Steelers quarterback is right.
The only reason Denver defensive lineman Shelby Harris found himself in position to make a leaping grab of Roethlisberger's pass intended for Antonio Brown was because Harris was mashed off the line of scrimmage by Pittsburgh center Maurkice Pouncey. Yet that didn't stop Harris from improvising and getting his hands on the ball.
