    Browns lose sack; Big Ben gets catch

    PITTSBURGH: Cleveland had another small setback on Thursday when the Elias Sports Bureau took away a Browns sack and gave Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger a pass reception from Pittsburgh's 10-6 win Sunday night.
    The sack was originally credited to the Browns' Shaun Smith. The play was ruled a sack for a 7-yard loss. After reviewing the videotape, Elias changed the play to a successful pass for Roethlisberger because the ball came out of his hand, struck a teammate in the back and rebounded to the quarterback, who was tackled by Smith.
    The ruling takes away one of the Browns' three sacks and changes Roethlisberger's passing statistics from 12-of-19 to 13-of-20 for 176 yards. It also lowers his NFL-leading passer rating from 136.3 to 133.9.
    The Browns (0-2) travel to Baltimore and play the Ravens on Sunday.
    The good news for Ben Roethlisberger is he has one fewer sack, one more completion and one more pass reception than Nate Washington and Mewelde Moore.
    The bad news: His league-leading passer rating dropped.
    The Elias Sports Bureau, which handles statistics for the National Football League, has taken away a sack against Roethlisberger in the Steelers' 10-6 victory in Cleveland after reviewing video of the play.
    The play occurred with 10:51 left in the second quarter when Roethlisberger was sacked by Browns nose tackle Shaun Smith -- one of three sacks originally credited to Cleveland. Elias changed the call, saying Roethlisberger was actually attempting a pass, hit one of his linemen in the back with the ball and caught the deflection before being tackled by Smith for a 7-yard loss.
    So, instead of his statistics being 12 of 19 for 186 yards with a 113.0 passer rating against the Browns, Roethlisberger is officially credited with being 13 of 20 for 179 yards and a 110.2 passer rating.
    He also is credited with a pass reception -- something Washington, the No. 3 receiver, and Moore, the third-down back, haven't managed in two games.
    Because of the yardage loss, Roethlisberger's two-game passer rating changed from 136.3 to 133.9, still enough to lead the NFL over Arizona's Kurt Warner (128.5).
    QB catches his own pass.......You don't hear about that everyday....

    Big Ben..more receptions than Mewelde Moore and Nate, man that's not even cool.

    "He's running around there, running his mouth, doing all that, but if you watch him on film and really look, where was Ray Lewis? He was nowhere to be found. I could have tackled the water boy and had as many tackles as him. He didn't do nothing today. He's all mouth. When you talk like that, that's what happens: You get hit in the mouth. He's over there crying now, thinking about what went wrong. You got your *** whipped, that's what." ~ Peazy

    I believe Bret Farve's first completed pass was a deflected pass that Farve himself caught.

    I know I was a little on the tanked side during this game, but I dont remember Ben throwing a ball to himself. The speed of the game is too fast for my failing eyes I
