IM telling you man, I need to seriously get some heart medication when watching these games. Our offense is so inept for 3 quarters then they actually find ways to win. How much longer can it last I mean seriously I can't breathe right now!!!

Predictability, dropped passes, fumbles, penalties, yet they still find ways to win games. How I have no idea!

Ben did it again in crunch time and just when you think they are done the defense makes a stand again and they finally take advantage. winning the last 2 weeks by a combined what 6 points or so! You have to be proud of this team and they way they stick together and never give up!

Me to every week its a near heart attack...Say what you want about Ben and the offense but they respond when they have to in crucial times....Winning ugly and that is all that matter........Ben responds when the chips are down in crucial times were a QB like Tony Romo folds.....I'll take Ben anyday of the week over Homo.....lol

No doubt bro, Ben may never have the stats we'd all like to see but the guy is a winner and never gives up. He's my QB out of anybody in the league to run our offense especially in crunch time. He can suck the whole game and just do enough for 3 quarters and then he wills this team to a win !

I think they are getting better. We have 2 games to get it together. Ben looks more confident, the line is playing better. The penaltys and dropped balls did drive me nuts today. But I feel better about our O today than I did a few weeks ago.

Steelers rally to beat Ravens 13-9, win AFC North
Sunday, December 14, 2008 7:42 PM EST
The Associated Press



BALTIMORE (AP) The Pittsburgh Steelers used a second straight fourth-quarter comeback to earn another AFC North title. Santonio Holmes caught a 4-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger with 43 seconds left, and the Steelers clinched their second consecutive division crown by beating the Baltimore Ravens 13-9 Sunday.

The Steelers (11-3) trailed 9-6 before moving 92 yards in 13 plays to take their only lead and score the game's lone touchdown. Roethlisberger went 7-for-11 for 89 yards on the drive.

Last week, Pittsburgh used a 17-point fourth quarter to rally past Dallas 20-13. The Steelers have won five straight, and this was their first win in Baltimore since 2002. It also earned the Steelers a first-round bye.

Matt Stover kicked three field goals for the Ravens (9-5), who remain in the wild-card hunt despite being eliminated from the AFC North race.

The Steelers began their final drive at their 8 with 3:36 left. Two straight completions to Hines Ward moved the ball to the 34, and a third-and-10 completion to Nate Washington for 16 yards took Pittsburgh to midfield.

Washington caught a 24-yarder to the 14, and a 10-yard pass to Ward set up first-and-goal at the 4. After two incompletions, Roethlisberger scrambled left, then found Holmes over the middle for the winner.

The play was reviewed because it appeared Holmes' feet were in the end zone but the ball may have been in front of the goal line. The official explanation for a TD was that Holmes had both feet in the end zone with possession of the ball.

Page 776 of the rules digest in the NFL fact book reads: "A player with the ball in his possession scores a touchdown when the ball is on, above or over the goal line."

Down 9-3, the Steelers used a 30-yard pass from Roethlisberger to Ward to set up a 30-yard field goal by Jeff Reed with 9:26 to go.

Baltimore then moved to the Pittsburgh 27, but a third-down sack forced the Ravens to punt, setting up the dramatic conclusion.

Baltimore used an outstanding punt and a turnover to take the 9-3 third-quarter lead. After Sam Koch punted to the Pittsburgh 1, Holmes caught a pass but fumbled when hit by Samari Rolle. Ed Reed returned the ball to the 16, setting up a 28-yard field goal.

Later in the quarter, Holmes muffed a punt. Pittsburgh's Keyaron Fox took the loose ball 18 yards to the Baltimore 33, but on third-and-1, Roethlisberger fumbled when sacked by Terrell Suggs and Brandon McKinney plucked the loose ball out of the air for the Ravens.

Tempers flared after the play, and Baltimore's Haloti Ngata received a 15-yard penalty for vigorously pulling a Pittsburgh player from the angry crowd.

A risky play by Ravens punt returner Jim Leonhard produced the game's first points. On the final play of the first quarter, Leonhard picked up a bouncing kick in a crowd at the Baltimore 11 and scooted 46 yards down the right sideline. Joe Flacco then completed a 24-yard pass to Todd Heap, and Stover followed with a field goal.

Pittsburgh answered with a 14-play drive that ended with a 31-yard field goal by Reed.

Baltimore then deftly mixed the pass and run in a beat-the-clock possession for a 26-yard field goal with 49 seconds left in the half.

Watching the Steelers offense.. :sleepy: I get tired even thinking about the offense :sleepy: do they even have one :sleepy: seems like they only show up the last 5 minutes or so of a game :sleepy:

Let's just hope this is a slump and they will wake up like they did in the 2005 playoffs! :bigthumb:

I agree...they have had me on the edge of my seat every week! I spilled a whole pitcher of beer when Deshea got that pick-6. I wonder though if this is going to be a positive for our team once the Playoffs start. We all know they are tough...I mean c'mon we are talking about the Steelers here, but the competition is only going to get tougher and we can't afford to make the same mistakes for three quarters an expect to pull it out. We need to be efficient on offense...image if we put up 30 pts a game for our defense! you might as well hand over #6!

Just my Opinion :tt02:
