Pittsburgh Steelers veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger announced that the Steelers’ upcoming game against the Cleveland Browns will “likely” be his last game at Heinz Field.

“Looking at the bigger picture, I would say all signs are pointing to this could be it — regular season, that is,” Roethlisberger said Thursday. “I know we still have a chance to potentially get a playoff game there if things fall our way and we take care of business and things have to happen. In the grand scheme of things, in terms of regular seasons, signs are pointing that way that this could be it.”

The 39-year-old Roethlisberger has played all of his 18 seasons with the Steelers and has won two Super Bowls. In his career to date, he has passed for 63,721 yards, 416 touchdowns, and been selected to the Pro Bowl six times.

“I’m sure you can go back to my very first press conference, all I’ve ever said I wanted to do was win,” Roethlisberger said. “And that’s what is most important to me. That’s what’s going to be most important. I don’t care if it’s 3-0. I just want to win a football game because it’s so important for our season.”

The Ohio native QB had nothing but praise to give for the city and people of Pittsburgh.

“It’s 18 years, almost half my life I’ve given to this city and this team and these fans,” the quarterback said. “But the fun thing is, I know I still have it in the tank to go out there this week and next week and give it everything I have to do everything I can to get us into the postseason. That’s always the ultimate goal, to win us a Lombardi. That’s still my goal. We’re not out of this thing yet.”
