The Steelers 51-34 win over the Colts was more than just a great day for QB Ben Roethlisberger, it was a day for rewriting Steelers and NFL history.
With 522 yards and 6 TDs and an 81.6 completion percentage, “Big Ben” came within less than 40 yards of breaking the single-game passing record held by Norm Van Brocklin. He also became the first QB in NFL history to throw for over 500 yards in two or more games – his first was a 503 yard performance against the Green Bay Packers in 2009.
