PITTSBURGH (AP) So much for Heath Miller struggling to find his place in the Pittsburgh Steelers' uptempo offense.

The reliable tight end caught a career-high 10 passes in last week's loss to Tampa Bay, including his first touchdown of the season.

The 10-year veteran says he wasn't aware it was the most productive of his career, adding it didn't matter because Pittsburgh didn't win. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger praised Miller's toughness and ability to find open spaces, calling him a vital part of an offense that is one of the most productive in the league.

The Steelers (2-2) play at winless Jacksonville (0-4) on Sunday.
