Final stats update: Roethlisberger finished strong. He completed the game with 229 yards and three touchdowns in the Steelers 26-16 win.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have taken a 16-10 lead over the New York Giants into halftime, and Ben Roethlisberger is picking up some momentum after a slow start. Roethlisberger is 12 of 21 for 145 yards with two touchdowns, with both scores coming in the second quarter.

Roethlisberger has looked a little gimpy at times but seems to be gutting through it. He had his leg rolled in the first quarter and after limping to the line was able to get back to it. In the second quarter, he was spotted wearing a wrap around his white arm while Mason Rudolph was seen warming up, per numerous media reports.

This will be something to track over the second half. Roethlisberger has regularly had a bit of a gimpy look to him when he gets out there, and he’s taken some tough shots in this game. He seems to be on track to finish the game, but keep an eye out.
