Steelers Film Room: Ben Roethlisberger's growing prominence in the franchise's record books

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was dialed in during the team's 51-34 win over the Indianapolis Colts. It was a true offensive achievement, and not just for the team's franchise quarterback.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had the best game of his career and the best game in the franchise's passing history. But he didn't do it without outstanding performances from those around him as well.

Ben had protection, he had heads-up plays downfield and he had confidence in making big plays. Combine all of those things with a well-designed and executed game plan, and the results will be positive. When you have those things and also have Ben Roethlisberger, you've got the possibility of 522 yards and six touchdowns.

We break down a few plays of Roethlisberger's record-setting performance from the perspective of how a few of his teammates helped him along, including excellent blitz-pickups, aggressive blocking and getting off of the line of scrimmage.
