Roethlisberger on loss: ‘I’ll take this game on me’

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger takes the blame for the 23-17 overtime loss to the Bears Sunday:

“I need to play better football. I’ll take this game on me,” Roethlisberger said, (235 yards, one TD). “I didn’t play well enough, I missed too many throws, didn’t make good reads, whatever it was. Turned the ball over on a sack-fumble. This one’s on me.”

“We just need to execute,” Roethlisbeger added. “I think I was just off today, for whatever reason. I didn’t make all the throws that I normally would, make the plays that I normally should. That’s why I think we lost this game.”
