Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger did not have a good day Sunday. The Jacksonville Jaguars defense made sure of it.
The Jags picked off the veteran Pittsburgh quarterback an astounding FIVE times — and returned two of them for touchdowns.
Here's a look at the two scores:
These pick-sixes by Telvin Smith and Barry Church were the second and third of the day for the Jags, after Jalen Ramsey intercepted Big Ben's pass in the first quarter. Jacksonville free safety Tashaun Gipson got in on the fun with an interception later in the third quarter, and another in the fourth.
It was the first five-interception game of Roethlisberger's 14-year career. In six career games against the Jaguars prior to Sunday, he had thrown ten touchdowns and just three interceptions.
The Jacksonville defense has forced 15 turnovers so far this year, which leads the league and is tied for the fifth most through the first five games of the season since 2000.
Their four defensive touchdowns so far are tied for the most in the league through five games of a season, dating back to the 2000 season.
