The Steelers and the Browns play in the AFC North, and as such the Steelers visit Cleveland once a season. He’s been around since 2004, and has played twelve games at Browns Stadium.

Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers are 10-2 in those games, after their 24-9 win today. That’s obviously a great record against any divisional opponent on the road, regardless of that opponent’s track record of incompetence.

But what makes it even more special is this:

Roethlisberger¬†has more wins at Browns Stadium than all but one Browns quarterback, with whom he’s now tied. And Ben will likely have a chance to take the lead next year. Browns Stadium has been around since the franchise came back as an expansion team in 1999. They obviously play eight home games a season. But as they have generally had bad teams, and also failed to develop anything resembling a long-term franchise quarterback (those factors just might be related), they’ve never had a quarterback win more than 10 games in their own stadium.

That’s amazing.

Cleveland doesn’t really show any signs of snapping out of their organizational funk, either, which isn’t good; Joe Flacco already has seven wins at Browns Stadium himself.
