The Pittsburgh Steelers' season came to a painful and abrupt ending in the AFC Wild Card Round of the NFL Playoffs last Sunday night, falling 48-37 to the Cleveland Browns.

After the Browns scored a defensive touchdown on the first play of the game due to a botched snap, Cleveland went on to hang a 28-0 lead on Pittsburgh at the end of the first quarter and there was no looking back.

Now, with just one year left on Big Ben's contract in Pittsburgh as he approaches 39 years old, the window of opportunity to earn any more postseason wins is closing sharply. In fact, that window has been closing so quickly that he hasn't earned a single one since 2017.

How Many Playoff Wins Does Blake Bortles Have?

That's right, former Jacksonville Jaguars starting quarterback Blake Bortles actually has more playoff wins than Roethlisberger since 2017, with two. While those two wins for Bortles are his only two playoff victories, they are an undefined amount more than Roethlisberger since 2017.

Not only does Bortles have more postseason wins than Roethlisberger, but Browns' QB Baker Mayfield now has more during the same stretch as well with his win over the Steelers last Sunday.
