Ben Roethlisberger capped off a fantastic 12-play drive against the Miami Dolphins with a five-yard touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders.

It gave the Steelers an early seven-point lead, and it gave Roethlisberger 213 career touchdown passes - one more than Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw.

Roethlisberger now holds the franchise's career touchdown passing mark, coming in Roethlisberger's ninth season.

He achieved the 213 touchdowns mark in his 140th game, 28 less than Bradshaw. Roethlisberger already has the franchise's passing yards record at 33,276 at the time of the touchdown pass to Sanders.
