Marks set by Steelers in win

PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Monday, December 28, 2009

• Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger went over the 4,000-yard passing mark for the season, and running back Rashard Mendenhall eclipsed the 1,000-yard rushing mark in the Steelers' 23-20 win against the Ravens on Sunday at Heinz Field. The two milestones allowed the Steelers to accomplish a franchise first, as they will have a 4,000-yard passer, a 1,000-yard rusher and a pair of 1,000-yard receivers this season. Santonio Holmes and Hines Ward had gone over 1,000 yards previously, and the Steelers' wideouts have 1,243 and 1,106 receiving yards, respectively. "It's just stats. It's good for fantasy football players and something to have on your resume, but this league is all about wins and losses," Ward said. "Just because you have all that doesn't bring championships."

• The Steelers established another record on offense yesterday, as Heath Miller went over the 70 reception mark for the season. This year marks the first time the Steelers have had three receivers catch at least 70 passes. Rookie Mike Wallace's contributions to the passing game also shouldn't be overlooked, Holmes said. After catching three passes for 83 yards, Wallace has 692 receiving yards.

• Steelers starting defensive end Brett Keisel left yesterday's game early in the third quarter after re-injuring his neck and didn't return. Keisel said after the game that he expects to play next Sunday against the Dolphins and added that he may have to wear a neck brace for extra protection.

• Steelers strong safety Troy Polamalu (knee), left guard Chris Kemoeatu (wrist) and cornerback Keenan Lewis (back) didn't play yesterday because of injuries. Also inactive for the Steelers were wide receiver Joey Galloway, fullback Carey Davis, guard Kraig Urbik, defensive end Sunny Harris and quarterback Charlie Batch.

Perfectly stated Hines! Out of all those stats I am most happy for Heath Miller. It's great to see him get to 70 catches even with 1 game remaining.

If Rice didnt get 100 on the ground against us, that would've been my day. All in all though, i am one happy man.
