Steelers’ Roethlisberger after beating Cowboys: ‘We’re the world’s team’

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was still glowing after the Pittsburgh Steelers’ comeback victory over the Dallas Cowboys to remain undefeated and get off to the best start in franchise history.

With the Cowboys dropping to 2-7, Roethlisberger wondered Sunday night whether anyone would have known during the matchup whether they were “America’s Team” – a moniker adopted during the team’s run of Super Bowl titles in the 1990s – by looking at the stands at AT&T Stadium.

“We’re the Pittsburgh Steelers. We know everyone is coming for us. I’m not trying to take any shots at anybody but if you didn’t know who America’s Team was you coulda seen the stands and seen all the terrible towels – Dallas may be American’s Team but we’re the world’s team. We got fans everywhere and they’re the best in the world,” Roethlisberger said.

Roethlisberger threw the go-ahead touchdown pass with 2:19 remaining in the game to put the Steelers up 24-19. It was the cap to 15 consecutive points in the final period.

Pittsburgh is off to the best start in franchise history with its eighth straight victory to start the season.
