FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has thrown his 200th touchdown pass.
Roethlisberger is the second quarterback in Steelers history to reach the milestone. Terry Bradshaw is the other. He threw for 212 TDs from 1970-83.
Roethlisberger reached No. 200 when he found Antonio Brown in the end zone in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots. Roethlisberger then connected three times with Jerricho Cotchery in the second half to give him 203.
That left Roethlisberger 32nd on the NFL’s career list, tied with Jim Everett.
