Despite 400 passing yards by Ben Roethlisberger and a season-high 31 points scored, the Pittsburgh Steelers (2-6) lost 55-31 on the road to the New England Patriots on Sunday.

The 55 points allowed against the Steelers’ defense, and the 610 total yards surrendered were both all-time records by Pittsburgh opponents.

New England’s Tom Brady threw for 432 yards and four touchdowns.  Three Patriots receivers (Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Dobson and Danny Amendola) recorded 100-yard games, and Stevan Ridley rushed for 115 yards and two scores.

The Steelers’ Jerricho Cotchery caught three touchdown passes, and Antonio Brown scored on another reception.  Shaun Suisham kicked a 30-yard field goal.

Roethlisberger completed 28-of-48 passes, and was intercepted twice.  The Steelers ran the ball only 20 times for 108 net yards.

Pittsburgh will return home next Sunday to face the Buffalo Bills (3-6).
