he really got sacked on his bye week
PITTSBURGH -- Ben Roethlisberger can get sacked even during an off week.
A scoring change has given the Minnesota Vikings an additional sack of Roethlisberger during Pittsburgh's 27-17 victory on Sunday. Roethlisberger was sacked four times, giving him 20 for the season.
A play in which Roethlisberger was initially given a 1-yard loss on a run has been changed to a sack by Minnesota's Kevin Williams.
Roethlisberger is on pace to be sacked 46 times, as many times as he was dropped last season.
Roethlisberger has been sacked a league-high 212 times since beginning his career in 2004, 12 times more during that period than the Rams' Marc Bulger. No other quarterback has been sacked more than 174 times.
