Ben Roethlisberger Finishes Season Outside Top 25 In’s Weekly QB Index

His final two regular season starts for the Pittsburgh Steelers certainly weren’t pretty, but 18-year quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was able to help lead the black and gold to the most important thing in Weeks 17 and 18: wins.

QB wins certainly aren’t a stat to measure anyone by in today’s game, but it’s quite puzzling to see Roethlisberger’s final season ranking in’s QB Index, which is compiled by Around the NFL Editor Gregg Rosenthal.

The veteran quarterback closed out the 16-13 overtime win against the Baltimore Ravens to extend the Steelers season in style as he completed 19-of-25 passes in the fourth quarter and overtime for 149 yards and a touchdown to Chase Claypool late in the fourth quarter, giving the Steelers the late lead.
