Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers made short work of the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, winning easily by a score of 27-3. The win was the team's 10th straight, maintaining the Steelers' undefeated record to start the 2020 season.

Observers are already wondering if Pittsburgh will run the table. However, Roethlisberger has his eyes set on a bigger prize than an undefeated regular season.

Obviously a 16-0 season is rare, and it would put the team in the history books, but that accomplishment means little without an actual Super Bowl win. Just ask the 2007 New England Patriots, who made it to the championship with a perfect record before falling to the underdog New York Giants.

For Roethlisberger, who already has two rings to his name, an undefeated season would pale in comparison to hoisting the Lombardi trophy for a third time. But with the way he's playing this season (fourth in TD passes) and the team's formidable defense, the veteran could possibly accomplish both things come February.

Pittsburgh will face the Baltimore Ravens in Week 12 on Thanksgiving Day, although the oddsmakers are relatively low on the Steelers' talent in that matchup.
