Ben Roethlisberger became the Steelers' all-time leading passer, surpassing Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw on Thursday night. Bradshaw threw for 27,989 yards in 14 seasons. Roethlisberger broke the record before the halfway point of his ninth year and needed only 119 games to do so, 49 fewer than Bradshaw. Roethlisberger set the record by converting a third down late in the third quarter. He stepped up in the pocket to complete a 17-yard pass to tight end Heath Miller to eclipse Bradshaw by four yards.
