2009 Steelers 27 vs Browns 14

Roethlisberger throws for 417 yds and 2 TDs, Ward makes 8 catches for 159 yds and a TD, Santonio Holmes snags 5 for 104 and Pittsburgh outgains Cleveland 543-197.

Even so, the game is sloppy with each team committing 4 turnovers -- including 2 apiece in the span of 1-1/2 minutes -- allowing the Browns manage to hang around until late in the 3rd thanks to an electrifying 98-yd kickoff return by Josh Cribbs before halftime.

A controversial first down call when it appears Big Ben might have been stopped inches short on 3rd down extends a drive and leads to a Jeff Reed FG, and a Ryan Clark INT ends Cleveland's last gasp. Josh Cribbs also throws an INT (out of wildcat formation) to Troy Polamalu, back in the lineup after missing 4 games with a torn knee ligament.
