Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has always been a better quarterback at home at Heinz Field than he is on the road in his career. 


However, things have been even more dreadful in one particular city -- Baltimore, MD.

Those hated Baltimore Ravens have always made life difficult on Roethlisberger during the course of his career -- he has never thrown for more than 300 yards at M&T Bank Stadium.


In fact, over that span on the road against the Ravens, Big Ben has thrown a total of nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions with a completion percentage of 58.3. 

To make matters worse, Roethlisberger will be playing on Sunday with a fracture on his non-throwing hand. It shouldn't limit him too much, but knowing how intelligent the Ravens defense is, it wouldn't be surprising if they try to aggravate that injury a bit more.

All in all, this is not only a bad matchup for Roethlisberger, but quarterbacks in general. The Ravens have allowed the second-fewest passing yards (216.5) and fifth-fewest FanDuel fantasy points per game to opposing signal-callers. If you can find a serviceable replacement, it might be smart to sit Big Ben this week.
