Immediate perspective on Roethlisberger


PITTSBURGH -- My column on Green Bay’s wild loss at Pittsburgh will publish soon. For the time being, let’s put in perspective the record-breaking performance of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who:

  • Became the 10th player in NFL history, and first in a Steelers uniform, to eclipse the 500-yard barrier.

  • Set the individual record for most passing yards against the Packers.

  • Joined Y.A. Tittle (1962) and Warren Moon (1990) as the only NFL quarterbacks to throw for at least 500 yards and three touchdowns without an interception in one game.
