PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger says he knows he needs to play better to help the team snap a three-game losing streak.

Roethlisberger is ranked 27th in the league in quarterback rating and has thrown as many interceptions as touchdowns.

The 18-year-veteran also is dealing with a hip injury suffered in a loss to Green Bay.

Roethlisberger says he is not quitting on the season and believes the accuracy issues he’s dealing with are fixable. The 1-3 Steelers host the 3-1 Broncos at Heinz Field in Week 5.
