Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger had a career day on Sunday (Oct. 26), setting multiple records with a 500-yard passing game.
Big Ben threw for 522 yards and six touchdowns, en route to a 51-34 win over the Indianapolis Colts at Heinz Field. With those numbers, he set a team records in touchdown passes, passing yards and completions, and became the first quarterback in NFL history with multiple 500-yard passing games.
Roethlisberger also his 100th game in his 150th career start, joining Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Terry Bradshaw as the only quarterbacks in NFL history to win 100 games in 150 or fewer starts.
“That was brought to my attention this week,” Roethlisberger said of the milestone. “I’ve been so blessed to play on some great football teams and to be a part of a great franchise. To have my name on a list with the others guys up there is a humbling honor.”
The Steelers currently sit at #7 in the AFC with a 5-3 record.
