PITTSBURGH (93.7 the Fan) – Steelers scored in every possession with their first team offense and added a defensive touchdown in a 52-21 beating of the Carolina Panthers. 

Ben Roethlisberger threw for five touchdowns, James Conner rushed for one and 65 yards although left to go into concussion protocol. 

Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Vince Williams each had big games, each refused to talk following the game.  Head coach Mike Tomlin would not address the situation with Brown following his citation Thursday morning for driving over 100 mph on McKnight Road.
