Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said he wants to go for two every time the team gets a chance.

“Why not?” Roethlisberger told reporters on Tuesday. “Put it in our hands. I want the ball. Any player would relish that opportunity ... When we get into that situation, we feel extremely confident.”

Pittsburgh made waves around the NFL for their frequent use of the two-point conversion, attempting 11 and succeeding on eight. It was the first year that the NFL moved extra-point tries back to the 15-yard line, a decision that made going for two a bit more enticing.
