Steelers searching for answers after 0-4 start

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger allows his team might be the "worst" in the NFL.

The Steelers fell to 0-4 on Sunday with a 34-27 loss to Minnesota in London that assured the franchise of its worst start since 1968. Now the team heads into an off week wondering when - and even if - it will snap out of its funk.

There were signs of progress against the Vikings. Rookie running back Le'Veon Bell ran for two touchdowns in his season debut. Roethlisberger passed for 383 yards and put Pittsburgh in position to tie the game in the final moments.

Still, it wasn't enough to keep the Steelers from remaining one of the NFL's four winless teams a quarter of the way through the season.
