🏈 The official NFL account on X posted a throwback clip of when Jerome Bettis racked up more touchdowns than rushing yards in a game — 5 carries, 1 yard, 3 TDs. Jerome Bettis’ three touchdowns led the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 24-21 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 1 of the 2004 season.

🏈 WPXI: A jersey worn and signed by a legendary Steelers quarterback is up for auction.

The home β€œBumblebee” jersey worn by Ben Roethlisberger on November 1, 2015 β€” which is the game where he became the first quarterback in franchise history to pass for over 40,000 yards β€” is up for bidding during the Lelands 2024 Summer Classic Auction. Roethlisberger has also signed the jersey in black Sharpie on the reverse number plate.

Lelands calls this one of the β€œfinest” Roethlisberger game-used jerseys they’ve ever handled because of the rare style and record-book significance.

The rare throwback-style jersey is original and displays its use, including the soil stains and paint transfers still on the fabric.

Bidding started at $5,000 and the auction ends on June 29. Click here to learn more or bid on the jersey.
