Roethlisberger completed 22-of-33 passes for 379 yards with three touchdowns for a passer rating of 123.2, after entering the game in the first quarter against the Cleveland Browns due to an injury to Landry Jones. Roethlisberger's 379 passing yards set a single-game NFL record for the most passing yards by a quarterback that did not start the game.
It marked his 41st career 300-yard game during the regular season and the 32nd time he tossed at least three touchdowns in a regular-season contest. Roethlisberger has thrown at least one touchdown pass in 36 straight home games, the second-longest streak among active players and the fourth-longest streak in NFL history. His three passing touchdowns also tied him for the 14th-most passing touchdowns in league history.
This marks the 13th time Roethlisberger has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week and the second time of the 2015 season (Week 2).
