With it being the slow portion of the NFL offseason in late May, the NFL Network's Good Morning Football today ranked the top 10 plays by rookie quarterbacks over the last 20 years. Ben Roethlisberger had a legendary rookie season with a 13-0 regular-season record and appeared at No. 10 on GMFB's list.

Pete Schrager ranked Roethlisberger's 47-yard touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress against the Patriots in Week 8 of the 2004 season at No. 10. The Steelers went on to beat New England 34-20 and ended their 21-game winning streak. However, the Patriots got revenge on the Steelers in the AFC Championship Game at Heinz Field with a 41-27 win.
