NFL Playoffs: Steelers Rally Over Rival Ravens


This is going to get Tom Brady and Petyon Manning fans mad but can you find a better big game quarterback than Ben Roethlisberger.

Saturday Roethlisberger again led the Pittsburgh Steelers to a playoff win over the Baltimore Ravens 31-24. Roethlisberger was 19-32 passing for 226 yards and two touchdowns. Roethliberger's biggest throw of the game can with less than two minutes left connecting for 58 yards to Antonio Brown.

"Let's just chuck it deep," Roethlisberger told offensive coordinator Bruce Arians just before he threw his biggest pass of the season. "If they pick it, it will be a pick way down there, just as good as a punt. ... I just throw it as far as I can.'"

"It was kind of amazing,"
Brown said. "It kind of stuck to my shoulder."

Five plays later Rashard Mendenhall bulled his way in the end zone for the game winner.
