Ben Roethlisberger Becomes Sixth Player in NFL History with 5,000 Career Completions



The Pittsburgh Steelers offense may have struggled in the first half against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday, but quarterback Ben Roethlisberger etched his name in the history books with another career milestone.

On a nine-yard completion to wide receiver Dionate Johnson with 3:59 remaining in the second quarter, Roethlisberger became just the sixth quarterback in NFL history with over 5,000 career completions.

The 18-year veteran joins an impressive club that already included Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Brett Favre, Peyton Manning and Philip Rivers.

The accomplishment is another notch on the belt of the future Hall of Famer, who already entered Monday owning the Steelers franchise records for completions (4,996), passing yards (59,837), touchdowns (392) and wins (155).
