Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown have had a difficult time connecting so far this season for the Pittsbrugh Steelers. 

Brown said his communication with his quarterback is just fine, and sometimes directed at the media.

“Me and Ben laugh about you guys, creating drama, writing about us,” Brown said. “Trying to create adversity and distractions. We actually text about it, laughing, communicate a lot on text message about you guys.”

Roethlisberger took the blame for the Week 4 struggles, stressing if he does his part, Brown will “get his numbers, which will in turn get us wins.”

Roethlisberger has 1,414 passing yards for eight touchdowns, five interceptions and a 64.0 completion percentage on the year.

The Steelers have a had a very drama filled season. AB’s numbers are still really good, just not as crazy as usual. The Steelers need to get their run game right before AB and Big Ben can start really clicking.
