"We've got a lot of weapons on this team and Ben showed it tonight getting the ball to all of them", DeCastro said.
Roethlisberger and Newton both wore cleats during the pregame that paid tribute to the 11 members of the Tree of Life synagogue that were killed in a mass shooting last month. Save for a couple of early communication breakdowns that allowed Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey to get loose, the Steelers kept things tight.
Several Steelers, a lot of them offensive linemen, took exception with the hit and a brief scrum ensued.
And on Carolina's next play from scrimmage, Newton was intercepted by Vince Williams, who returned the pick 17 yards for a touchdown with 10:05 left in the first quarter.

Energy Information Administration that said Wednesday oil inventories rose to 432 million barrels - the seventh week of increases. Russian Federation and the Saudis have pledged to increase production to more than make up for any lost Iranian supplies.
Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was sacked five times, twice by Cam Heyward. "We found out tonight that we have some work to do to be in that upper echelon right now". We clearly got outplayed today, but the majority of the downfall is on us. The Steelers looked more complete than ever to extend their winning streak to five games. Carolina allowed the same total in a 52-9 loss to Oakland on December 24, 2000.
The Steelers turned the game into a rout in the first half despite Carolina scoring first.
Big Ben was able to accomplish all that despite taking a dirty hit from defensive back Eric Reid, who was subsequently ejected.
Reid is considered a very good "box safety" as they say in the scouting world. "He was scrambling and I'm trying to do my job and tackle the person carrying the ball".

Grande has kept mum about her father since then, but she did wish Butera a Happy Father's Day on Instagram a year ago and even wrote , "I love you".
After Reid's hit to Roethlisberger's head, Steelers offensive guard David DeCastro went after Reid and had to be restrained. "They ruled that I was targeting, which I disagree with". It couldn't hurt to put it out there that you miss him. "And he said there's no hard feelings". "The guys in the locker room seem to have a grasp on what's at stake".
RUSHING-Carolina, McCaffrey 14-77, Newton 2-10, Moore 1-5, Armah 2-3, Samuel 1-1, Anderson 2-(minus 1).
"The truth of the matter is, it's one football game", Rivera said. "We know we're capable of being a deep contender playoff team".
A rare Tom Brady-Aaron Rodgers showdown goes Brady’s way
On special teams, there was Ty Montgomery's fumble on the kickoff return against the Rams and two penalties against the Patriots. If Rodgers was envious of the weapons at Brady's disposal or the style of offense the Patriots run, he didn't make it obvious.
