Steelers Crush 49ers 43-18

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger passed for 369 yards and three touchdowns, DeAngelo Williams tied a team record with three rushing scores and the Pittsburgh Steelers overwhelmed the San Francisco 49ers 43-18 on Sunday.

The Steelers (1-1) converted a pair of 2-point attempts in the first half to seize momentum and had little trouble with the 49ers (1-1). Antonio Brown caught nine passes for 195 yards and two touchdowns for Pittsburgh, which rolled up 453 total yards despite having the ball for only 23 minutes.

Colin Kaepernick threw for 335 yards and two scores. Torrey Smith had six receptions for 120 yards and a touchdown but the 49ers were no match for the Steelers’ firepower.

Pittsburgh raced to a 26-point halftime lead and cruised, with Roethlisberger doing whatever he wanted while guiding an offense that looks to be among the league’s best once again.
