The Pittsburgh Steelers racked up yet another comeback win to top AFC North division rival Baltimore Ravens 39-38 on Sunday night to move a step closer to securing a playoff spot.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger led the way with his arm behind a huge performance throwing a season-high 506 passing yards, which also put him alone in the record books in NFL history, according to ESPN.
Ben Roethlisberger became the first quarterback in NFL history to record three games with at least 500 yards passing when he led the Pittsburgh Steelers to a come-from-behind victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night.
It snapped a tie with Drew Brees for players with two 500-yard games this season while also posting a career-high 44 completions on 66 attempts, which were the most since Drew Bledsoe recorded 45 completed passes in 1994 over the Minnesota Vikings.
In his 14th season, Roethlisberger has continued to play at a high level currently ranking first in the league with 3,744 passing yards and fourth with 24 touchdown passes through the first 13 games played. The 35-year-old has been a major part of the team's sustained success over the last decade-plus that features a pair of Super Bowl wins, nine playoff appearances, and six AFC North division titles.
This is another notch in his belt for his eventual candidacy for the Hall of Fame once he steps away from the game. In the meantime, the performance put the Steelers another step closer toward the ultimate goal of a championship.
