Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger visited his namesake — Big Ben — on Tuesday, traveling to London ahead of the Steelers' 2013 regular-season game against the Vikings.

Roethlisberger, who was promoting the Sept. 29 game at Wembley Stadium, also visited the Houses of Parliament in central London. He said he wants to win more Super Bowl rings than Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw and spend the rest of his career with the Steelers.

“I want to pass Terry Bradshaw by getting more Super Bowl wins,” Roethlisberger said, via Steelers public relations manager Burt Lauten. “That's our expectations in Pittsburgh. ... There is no other franchise I would rather play for than the Pittsburgh Steelers.”

Roethlisberger, 31, has played in three Super Bowls and won two of them. He needs three more rings to pass Bradshaw, the first quarterback to win four Super Bowls.
