Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger tossed his 400th career touchdown pass on the opening drive of Pittsburgh’s game against Green Bay on Sunday.
No. 400 was vintage Roethlisberger, as he evaded rushers and extended the play before finding wide receiver Diontae Johnson for a 45-yard strike.
Roethlisberger is just the eighth quarterback in NFL history to reach the milestone, joining Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Philip Rivers, Dan Marino and Aaron Rodgers in the exclusive club.
