Speaking to the media after the game, Big Ben pointed to himself as the main reason why the Steelers weren't able to start the season 3-0 for the first time since 2010.
Hubbard committed a costly holding penalty late in the game and with the scored nodded at 17 apiece.
Big Ben and his offensive teammates were forced to watch helplessly as the Bears' two-headed monster of running backs Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen (35 carries, 216 yards and two touchdowns between them) iced it in overtime, with Howard breaking Pittsburgh's backs on a 19-yard run.
While Roethlisberger fell on the sword, he also helped put Pittsburgh's loss in perspective, as the 2-1 Steelers look to take sole possession of the AFC North at the quarter point of the season by defeating the 2-1 Ravens in Baltimore next Sunday.
"The good news is, if you will, it’s an NFC road game, (and ) it’s early in the season," Roethlisberger said, "and I take the approach (now) that we’re not going to be undefeated."
