2010 Steelers 23 at Dolphins 22

A crazy finish! The Dolphins recover fumbles deep in Pittsburgh territory twice in the first 2 minutes of the game, but settle for FGs both times. Their failure to capitalize early ultimately costs Miami the game.

With Pittsburgh trailing 22-20 and facing 3rd-and-goal at the 2, Roethlisberger (19 for 27 for 302, 2 TDs) loses the ball as he dives across the goal line on a QB draw. The play is ruled a touchdown as both teams scramble for the ball. But after a review, the officials rule Big Ben fumbled before scoring. Fortunately for the Steelers, officials can't determine which team recovered, so Pittsburgh is awarded possession and Jeff Reed kicks a chip shot FG field goal to take the lead with 2:26 remaining.

The Dolphins still have time for a last-minute comeback, but turn the ball over on downs. The Steelers struggle on the ground, gaining just 58 yds on 27 carries, but Hines Ward comes up big with 7 catches for 131 yds and a TD.
