At the time of writing, it's unclear whether or not Big Ben is actually going to play in this upcoming matchup. He's reportedly dealing with a pectoral issue and could be a game-time decision when it's all said and done. Even if he does play, it's unlikely that he'll be operating at full strength. Even when he has been at 100% though, Ben has not looked like himself and this offense is struggling because of it. The offensive line is certainly partly to blame in this situation, but Ben needs to do more to keep this offense moving and it's simply not happening. Until we see Ben start to turn things around, he shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a low-end QB2. This is all assuming that he does play, of course, so check back here for updates as we progress throughout the week and get more clarity on the situation.
