Roethlisberger One Passing Touchdown Away From Being Franchise Leader


Pittsburgh Steelers Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has thrown 212 touchdowns in the regular season over his ten year career. Roethlisberger is tied with hall of fame and four-time Super Bowl Champion, Terry Bradshaw for the most in team history. Roethlisberger is one touchdown away from breaking another Steelers record.

Lets not forget the career Roethlisberger has led the Steelers with. Three AFC Championship wins, which gives the Steelers eight total and more than any other franchise in the AFC. Two Super Bowls which totals six for the franchise and more than any other team. Roethlisberger has over 100 career wins in the regular season and one of the best winning percentages in history at quarterback.

Roethlisberger won two Super Bowls under two different head coaches and two different offensive coordinators. Roethlisberger has been elected to two pro bowls and has been one of the toughest quarterbacks the game has ever seen.

Add that on top of Roethlisberger’s late game performance. Roethlisberger is the only quarterback in NFL history to reach 20 comebacks before he turned 30-years old. Here are the other records Roethlisberger holds:
