NFL QB playoff records, stats

        Updated: February 3, 2014

Comparisons of Ben Roethlisberger's playoff won-loss record and statistics with fellow quarterbacks Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Terry Bradshaw, Joe Montana and others. Stats are based on playoff games started. Road playoff games do not include Super Bowl games (neutral site). Playoff points per game is the average scored by the entire team in games started by selected quarterback. Non-wild-card playoff record omits games played during the post-1977 wild card round (even by division champions) that added an extra week to the playoffs. The 30-30-30 seasons stat is for quarterbacks whose teams scored 30 points in three straight playoff games from divisional round to conference title game to Super Bowl (not wild card round).
