Bettis' 147.9 passer rating for the day eclipsed Eli Manning

Recommended Posts

Bettis' 147.9 passer rating for the day eclipsed that of celebrated Giants rookie Eli Manning, who had a low-as-can-go 0.0 rating in a 37-14 loss to Baltimore.

Bettis' third career touchdown pass in six attempts came on Pittsburgh's only sustained drive of the day until that point, an 80-yard possession keyed by Roethlisberger completions of 26 yards to Hines Ward and 21 yards to Duce Staley. On third-and-3, Bettis rolled to his right after taking a pitch from Roethlisberger and casually tossed the ball to a wide-open Tuman, who also caught Bettis' last scoring pass in 2001.

Bettis also carried 10 times for 57 yards to push his career total to 13,037. Martin ran 24 times for 72 yards to move past Bettis into fifth place with 13,046 yards in the first game in NFL history in which two backs each surpassed 13,000 yards.
