Ben Roethlisberger has officially retired following the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 42-21 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC wild-card game on Sunday night.

A melancholy Roethlisberger shed light on his brilliant career shortly after completing his 272nd NFL game, with 23 of them being playoff games. Roethlisberger threw for 215 yards and two touchdowns in what is most likely a sure-fire Hall of Fame career.

The last active quarterback from the famous 2004 draft class, which included Eli Manning and Philip Rivers, Roethlisberger threw for 3,740 yards with 22 touchdowns and 10 interceptions (while completing 64.5 percent of his passes) in his final regular season.

With six Pro Bowls and two Super Bowl championships, what Roethlisberger means to the Steelers franchise is immense.

“It’s tough,” Roethlisberger said about his emotions, while leaving the field Sunday.

Roethlisberger’s 249 games in the regular season are the most in Steelers history.
