 2012 Regular Season 


2012 Steelers 16 vs Eagles 14
A game I attended with my kids. Rashard Mendenhall plays well in his first action since tearing his ACL in the 2011 regular season finale, gaining 101 total yards, averaging 5.8 yds a carry and scoring Pittsburgh's only TD on a Roethlisberger checkdown pass. The Steelers shut Philly out in the first half thanks to a Michael Vick fumble into the end zone on a QB draw (forced by Ryan Clark, recovered by Larry Foote). Pittsburgh leads 10-0 at halftime, and it would've been 14-0 had Jerricho Cotchery not tripped over his own feet just shy of the end zone. But the Eagles fight back and go ahead 14-13 on a short Michael Vick TD pass with 6:33 remaining in the game. Big Ben leads a methodical 15-play 6-1/2 minute final drive from the Pittsburgh 10 to the Philly 16, passing for a pair of critical 3rd down conversions along the way to set up Shaun Suisham's 34-yd game-winner as time expires.




2012 Steelers 24 vs Browns 10
Pittsburgh's top-ranked defense forces 4 turnovers (3 fumbles and an INT) and 4 sacks, while Ben Roethlisberger throws 3 TDs (including the final TD of Plaxico Burress' career) as the Steelers do just enough offensively to beat the Browns and avoid a losing season at 8-8. Despite being a so-called "meaningless" game, the contest is hard-hitting and chippy with lots of pushing and shoving after the whistle.
