ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is well aware of what he'll be up against this weekend when Ndamukong Suh, Nick Fairley and the Detroit Lions pay a visit.
Roethlisberger says a quarterback can ''end up dead'' if he's not careful against Detroit's defensive line. Suh says he figures he has to take that as a compliment.
Suh and Fairley are indeed a tandem to be feared this season. Drafted in the first round a season apart, they're anchoring a defense that is a big part of why the Lions are in first place in the NFC North.
