If not for the defense, Ben Roethlisberger would have been the NFL's Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Raiders. And I guess eight minutes was too much time to leave on the clock for the defense to protect a seven-point lead against the Titans. And for as lousy as the offense was against the Chargers, they're not the ones who allowed a 17-play, 10-minute drive for a TD to put the game away in the third quarter. The defense had a 15-minute breather at halftime and still failed when a stop would have kept the game alive.
