4. Throwing 6 touchdown passes in consecutive games
Any time you are the first to do something, it is extremely impressive. And that is something Roethlisberger can take credit for as he became the first player in NFL history to record six passing touchdowns in back-to-back games in 2014.
The first of these games came in a 51-34 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. In a duel against Andrew Luck in which both quarterbacks threw for over 400 yards, Roethlisberger came out on top. On the day he finished 40-49 for 522 yards, 6 touchdowns, 0 interceptions, and a 150.6 passer rating, according to ESPN. Roethlisberger did this while spreading the ball around and getting everyone involved, as Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant each had two touchdowns, while Heath Miller and Markus Wheaton each had one of their own.
The next week, in a divisional matchup against a tough Ravens defense, Roethlisberger kept his hot streak going. In this game Roethlisberger put up another impressive stat line, completing 25 of 37 passes for 340 yards, 6 touchdowns, 0 interceptions, and 136.3 passer rating. This time, five different receivers got in on the scoring as Bryant had two more touchdowns, and Wheaton, Brown, Le’Veon Bell, and Matt Spaeth all had one of their own.
