Roethlisberger Sets Franchise Records In Pass Attempts And Completions In Win Over Bengals


Thanks to his 20 completions Sunday night in the 30-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger set a new single-season franchise record for completions that he originally set in 2009.

Roethlisberger now has 340 completions with two games remaining in the regular season. In 2009, Roethlisberger completed 337 passes for 4,328 yards in 15 games played.

In addition to his completion record, Roethlisberger also set a new single-season pass attempts record Sunday night as well. His 525 attempts on the season now tops the 519 attempts that Tommy Maddox had back in 2003.

Roethlisberger's third quarter interception Sunday night, however, ended his streak of pass attempts without an interception at 207.

    20 of 25 for a 80% completion rate I’ll take any day!

    alot of these records just gone unnoticed this year on the average because of the steelers play ….which takes away from ben when he cant enjoy them because they just seem to meaningless to mention because hes trying to just win a game

    Wow, when you said this I had to go to NFL.c0m to see if this was correct. Didn’t watch game so wasn’t sure. That’s what sucks about this season is even with all the o line injuries and the constant juggling of o lineman the o has for the most part been pretty good. How sad is it that our d is what loses us games now. That being said, and like I said I didn’t watch the game, how do you only score 3 in the second half? That has been the one issue with the o is they aren’t consistent for 60 mins.

  • dgh57

    Yes the OL has improved very much as the season has moved along on the passing side of things. I’m sure Big Ben is thankful of that as at one point in this season he was on pace to be sacked over 60 times and get killed in the process! Now if we could only get the running game fixed as I’m sure Le’Veon Bell would be thankful for that.

    Sad thing is in the beginning of the season Adams was just killing them with his lack of ability. Sad they didn’t recognize that in the preseason/practices. That to me is on the coaches. I mean think back to those early games where Ben had no time at all, I’d like to think we win a couple of those but with the way our D is stinkin maybe we still lose. They have to draft D heavy this year. I think the O line if all are healthy will be ok with depth but they need to resign Velasco. Problem with LeBeau’s D is it seems to be to complicated for the rookies to pick up quickly. Other then Pats game we were in most so we are not far away from contending again. Ike, Clark have to go. Maybe see if Ike will take cut to stay for depth but he’s done.

  • DrakePirate

    Ike is fine for another year if he takes a HUGE pay cut, many people are saying Draft heavy on Defense but arent being specific, i actually disagree with this philosophy … regardless of the stats are Offense and Defense need about the same amount of changes and Draft help … I would like to hear what you think we need on defense … I see CB, S and maybe another LB … otherwise i think we are set …

  • Alan Felicia

    Defense need NT, CB, OLB, DE. McLendon is a short term solution and Woods played well last night. But if Louis Nix (6’3″, 340, Notre Dame) is available, would love for Steelers to snatch him up. Cover corners are hard to find and Taylor coming back next season is in question due to salary cap issues (will save $7M if he’s cut). Would like to see another DE to complement Heyward similar to what a Keisel-Smith dynamics.
    And due to Woodley’s third injury filled season and Worilds impending free agency, wouldn’t mind Pittsburgh drafting say Trent Murphy (Stanford) on day 2 or Kyle Van Oy (BYU) on day 3.

  • dennisdoubleday

    I’m not sure we need Nix. Woods was getting push into the backfield even against a double team last night. And the rushing total speaks for itself.

  • Alan Felicia

    No question, Woods had a solid game last night. Obviously, if coaching staff feel Woods as the heir apparent, by all means they’ll pass on Nix. However, not used to seeing a Pittsburgh defense ranked 26th against the run (and I’m going back to Cowher/LeBeau/Capers/Marvin Lewis days).

  • DrakePirate

    You dont think we need a safety ?… you have our Dline being the major problem, I think its in not too bad of shape, I agree we could upgrade a position or so there, but realistically we can’t have all-pros at every position .. I think our D line and LBs are above avg and our real weakness has been the secondary for many years now and this is a pass happy league so that’s where I would concentrate our focus on … not sure which of the DE or NT I would prioritise … hopefully arnfelt or woods pans out and makes it less necessary

  • dgh57

    What I thought was sad was going into this season with no depth on the OL to rave about. That shouldn’t be a problem next year at least on the interior OL if we resign Velasko or even Wallace who at this time I haven’t had time to review his play from last night who at 1st glance showed some promise last night and before the year is over. Don’t forget about Embernate who is on IR now also for next year. Clark needs to go, Taylor a paycut, and good luck with getting Woodley to take a paycut. We need a stud CB in the 1st rd. and a S somewhere to address our aging Secondary.

  • r4kolb

    Problem is in first round Steelers always preach they take best available player on their board. So no guarantee what position they go with the first. I agree with the stud CB however depending if how many more games they win, (if the season ended today they sit with at around #13) I’m not sure who will be there. That is why much to the ire of some I was hoping, due to them going nowhere this year, they would lose out. (They would be sitting with the #9 pick as of today had they lost.) So the haters can say what they want it would only have helped had they lost yesterday and the last 2 games.

  • Alan Felicia

    More corners rather safety. I’m in the minority and feel Polamalu can be a solid FS concentrating more on playing Centerfield rather than free-lancing as hybrid LB. Plus, there’s depth with Will Allen, Robert Golden, and Shamarko Thomas. To me, need to add cover corners, big corners (Gilbert-OSU, Colvin-OU, McGill-Utah).

  • Alan Felicia

    IMHO, Colbert went more needs last draft (Jones, Bell, Wheaton, Thomas). With the defense in the bottom 7 in Sacks and Rushing yards allowed, Colbert need more playmakers and depth on defense.

  • DrakePirate

    I think Troy has another 2 good years but that means we still need to groom a safety, but I like your idea of two big cover corners ( i think we already have one in Cortez .. i think he is solid)

  • Alan Felicia

    I totally agree about the O-Line. Love to see them in full capacity next season and hope they stay healthy all year. Feel bad for Velasco as I don’t think he’ll be ready until mid-season.

  • Alan Felicia

    Its a copycat League and love to see Pitt copy what Seattle have – two big Corners over 6’3″ = Richard Sherman (2011 5th rounder) and Brandon Browner (signed from the CFL). Plus, they have their SS Kam Chancellor (2010 5th rounder) @ 6’3″ and FS Earl Thomas is under 6′ but their best player! Go figure?!

  • DrakePirate

    I think Seattle did an exceptional job of scouting and actually lucked out a bit … unfortunately i dont see any earl thomas types in this draft … maybe we can luck out in late rounds like they did

  • Steve

    Bet Ben would trade all the records this year for a Super Bowl trip.

  • Steve

    Jarvis Jones and Shark could definatly be playmakers on D.

  • Alan Felicia

    Definately Jones! Speed and lots of energy but really need to hit the weight room in the off season.

  • Steve

    Shark could be a BIGGER playmaker than Jones in a few years.
