Ben took his last snap of the game at 14:55 in the 4th quarter.

More TDs than incompletions.

22/25 325 yds 13.1 Y/A 5 TD

Scoring strikes of 75 yds, 53 yds. The 33 yarder to AB was a laser.

It was a laser show.

Ben was putting on a clinic. Unbelievable performance.

It seems like Ben is running much more often this season. Plus, they've executed several QB sneaks. I guess it was Haley directing Ben not to run or sneak. So bizarre.

Didnt Ben go on a Tom Brady-like diet this past summer and really get himself in shape? That may be a big part of it to.

I'd say that was his best game ever, and that includes those back to back 6TD games he had a couple of years ago.

That was a BAMF performance

The 53 yd TD throw to AB was dropped into the breadbasket. Perfect throw. AB barely had any separation.

Ben still has it.

Kodiak, where are you and your elbow?

Gonzo, you, too.

Funny thing is the best throw of the day might have been the incompletion to JuJu in the endzone. That was a perfect throw into tight coverage that clanged off of Smith-Schuster's hands.

Yep, if JJSS just relaxes and catches the ball and stays facing Ben, he's good. Instead, it seems he wanted to twist his body back forwards while making the catch so he could get his feet in or something. Just jump up, catch the ball and fall backwards and he's in bounds for a sure TD. He made it more difficult than it had to be, imo.

Ben now has 8 games with a passer rating over 150. The most all-time.

I can’t remember Ben ever looking that fast or running that effortlessly. He’s usually a big lumbering ogre, but he was running away from people last night. 9 games in and he’s still out rushing our second and 3rd RBs in yards and ypc.

Like Ben said....it easy to look fast when a 375 lb. guy is chasing you. :lol:

The other thing that was back?

The “fuck yinz all...this is MY game” look in his eye.

The “zone” that Mean Joe Greene talked about.

Ben was in it last night.

He didn’t even have his usual boneheaded play...everything he did was correct.

Well...there was one risky throw I remember, but even that he threw so well I wasn’t worried about it.

One of the more impressive things about his performance was: most of it came from in the pocket and most on-time throws with excellent accuracy. IOW, the stuff he's supposedly not as good at as the elite guys.

Accuracy last night was fire.
