Coach Mike Tomlin, left, and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, right, speak as the Steelers prepare for their playoff match against the Ravens from their South Side training facility on Thursday.

 

It seems fitting that Ben Roethlisberger’s career with the Steelers began on a sunny September day in Baltimore in 2004. He has more significant history — good and bad — against the Ravens than any other NFL team. He will make more history Saturday night when the teams meet in a playoff game at Heinz Field.

Roethlisberger came off the bench in the third quarter of that 2004 game after starting quarterback Tommy Maddox left with an elbow injury. The Steelers were getting blown out and would lose, 30-13. Roethlisberger, the team’s No. 1 draft pick a few months earlier, threw the first two touchdown passes of his career — to Antwaan Randle El and Hines Ward — and has been the starter ever since. He won all 13 of his starts in 2004 to set an NFL record and really hasn’t stopped winning, producing a 106-52 record in the regular season and a 10-4 record in the postseason.
