Ben Roethlisberger knows what's at stake. The Steelers' 2018 season is on the line Sunday at Heinz Field when the team closes out its regular season against the Bengals (6-9).
But even if the Steelers (8-6-1) emerge victorious in that contest, they need another team to win if they want to make the playoffs. The Browns (7-7-1) must defeat the Ravens (9-6) in Baltimore to give the Steelers the AFC North crown and the automatic playoff berth that goes with it.
Because of this, many fans and media members have shifted focus to the Browns vs. Ravens matchup, analyzing the various aspects of that game and breaking down what the Browns need to do to get the win.
Don't count Roethlisberger among them. He believes only one game matters Sunday — and he'll play a crucial role in it.
