Ben Roethlisberger joined an elite fraternity today when he threw his 400th career touchdown pass.
Roethlisberger joined a group that includes Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Brett Favre, Peyton Manning, Dan Marino, Philip Rivers and Aaron Rodgers.
Roethlisberger connected with Diontae Johnson on a 45-yard touchdown in the first quarter against the Packers to hit No. 400.
Roethlisberger continues to climb the charts in other areas as well, eclipsing Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino to move into sixth place in the NFL in all-time passing yardage.
Roethlisberger needed 213 yards heading into the Packers game to pass Marino and move into sixth place in the NFL and did so in the fourth quarter when he hit James Washington for a 30-yard gain. Roethlisberger now has 61,374 passing yards with that completion (and counting), while Marino had 61,361 yards.
Roethlisberger now has four touchdown passes this season, having thrown a five-yard touchdown pass to Diontae Johnson Week 1 against the Bills, and a 25-yard pass to Najee Harris in Week 2 against the Raiders. Last week he completed a four-yard touchdown pass to Pat Freiermuth against the Bengals in Week 3.
Roethlisberger has spread the wealth with his touchdown passes, going to a total of 53 players.
Roethlisberger threw a career-high 34 touchdown passes in 2018 and added 33 touchdown passes in 2020. Four times he has thrown for more than 30 touchdowns in a season, including 32 in 2007 and 2014. The only time he didn't throw for double-digit touchdowns in his career was in 2019, when his season was cut short after Week 1 due to an elbow injury.
