Ben Roethlisberger has been an iron man for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He's about to play his 221st game for the team on Sunday, and that will set a new franchise record, passing Hall-of-Famer Mike Webster.

Roethlisberger would've broken this record last year were it not for an elbow injury that knocked him out of action in Week 2.

He's done a great job bouncing back from that injury this season, though. Through Week 2, Roethlisberger is averaging 270.0 passing yards per game while tossing 5 touchdowns to 1 interception.

If he keeps playing this well, he's going to continue serving as Pittsburgh's quarterback for a long time. This record is going to stand for quite some time – and it might never be broken.

FanDuel Sportsbook has the Steelers as 4-point favorites against the Texans on Sunday.
