The Ravens are trying to avoid 4 losses in a row

Ben Roethlisberger has taken steps to make sure to close any possible rift between him and offensive coordinator Todd Haley.

After the Steelers lost to the Cowboys Sunday, Roethlisberger criticized the play-calling, which obviously would be aimed to Haley. But on Monday, the quarterback said, he apologized to Haley — and also club president Art Rooney II and head coach Mike Tomlin.

"There won't be any rift,'' Roethlisberger told USA Today Wednesday. "Everything is fine. I don't even think Todd was upset with it. He said: 'I appreciate you coming. But I don't think you needed to.' We're good to go.

"That was just frustration [on Sunday], which normally doesn't get to me when speaking publicly. It was more frustration with myself than anything. We spoke on Monday. I wanted to make sure I was going to come in and apologize for causing an issue to Mike Tomlin, to Todd and Mr. Rooney."

The frustration with himself was because Roethlisberger threw a game-turning interception in overtime that led to the Cowboys’ winning field goal.

"One play can ruin your day,'' he said.
