Ben Roethlisberger breaks franchise record with six touchdown passes vs. Colts

Ben Roethlisberger has been simply unstoppable in this game and has single-handedly dragged an offense that turned the ball over twice in the second half toward a big victory.

One throw after he broke the Steelers' single-game, passing-yardage record, he set a new mark with six touchdown passes.

On a gutsy fourth-and-short call, Roethlisberger rolled out - something he rarely ever does - and hit tight end Heath Miller on a seam throw to put the Steelers over 50 points for the first time in three decades.

The Steelers lead 51-34 with five minutes left in the game as a result of the touchdown.

Roethlisberger has been nearly flawless all game and the Steelers' offense had one of its best performances in team history. Roethlisberger hit four different players for touchdowns - Miller, Markus Wheaton and Martavis Bryant and Antonio Brown had two each.

Ben Roethlisberger has been simply unstoppable in this game, despite his offensive mates turning the ball over twice during the second half.
