The Steelers’ all-time leader in games played, Roethlisberger owns the franchise record for most passing yards and passing touchdowns in a playoff game. With the Steelers on the doorstep of upsetting the Colts in the 2005 divisional round, future Hall of Fame running back Jerome Bettis fumbled the ball with the Steelers protecting a 21-18 lead. The ball was scooped up by Colts defensive back Nick Harper, who started to run downfield before he was tripped up by Roethlisberger.
The 2021 season is expected to be the final one for Roethlisberger, who will leave the game with several NFL records and numerous franchise records.
