Scoring change gives Vikings 4th sack
PITTSBURGH -- Ben Roethlisberger can get sacked even during an off week.
A play in which Roethlisberger was initially given a 1-yard loss on a run has been changed to a sack by Minnesota's Kevin Williams.
Roethlisberger is on pace to be sacked 46 times, as many times as he was dropped last season.
Roethlisberger has been sacked a league-high 212 times since beginning his career in 2004, 12 times more during that period than the Rams' Marc Bulger. No other quarterback has been sacked more than 174 times.
