Take 5; Steelers get a break after drilling Panthers

PITTSBURGH (AP) Ben Roethlisberger was still in the process of picking himself up off the Heinz Field turf when the scrum started, one that sent a message that at the moment it might be unwise to mess with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey and right guard David DeCastro were not particularly pleased with how Carolina safety Eric Reid launched himself at Pittsburgh's franchise quarterback as Roethlisberger finished off an 18-yard scramble during the third quarter of a 52-21 dismantling of the Panthers on Thursday night.

Together the two perennial Pro Bowlers - a combined 630 pounds give or take a meal - let Reid and a handful of his teammates know they didn't appreciate Reid's approach to his job. What followed was 30 seconds of flexing, grabbing and shoving before Reid was ejected for targeting.
