The Steelers opted not to sign or draft a replacement for Ben Roethlisberger this past offseason, banking on their 38-year-old quarterback to be healthy and effective over the next couple of years.
After an injury-riddled 2019, though, Roethlisberger appears a risky investment.
Pittsburgh hopes a matchup with the bottom-dwelling Giants on Monday night gives Roethlisberger an opportunity to ease his way into the regular season. Because there wasn’t preseason action before this campaign, the veteran hasn’t faced a live defense since Sept. 15 of last year.
New York, meanwhile, is playing its first game under coach Joe Judge and offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. The development of second-year quarterback Daniel Jones is in their hands, and it will be interesting to watch whether Jones is capable of making a leap in production in his sophomore campaign.
