2011 Steelers 23 at Colts 20 SNF

Facing a vastly inferior team that should've been easily vanquished, the Steelers jump out to a 10-0 lead courtesy of a beautiful Roethlisberger 81-yd bomb to speedster Mike Wallace, who exceeds 100-yds for the 3rd straight week. But the Steelers stumble through a miserable 2nd quarter in which Big Ben throws an INT and loses 2 fumbles -- one of which is returned 47 yds for a TD -- and trail 13-10 at the half.

The score is still 13-10 at the start of the 4th quarter before the Steelers finally shake out the cobwebs, tying the game on a 44-yd Suisham FG. Minutes later, Pittsburgh retakes the lead on a brilliant sack/fumble by James Harrison, who blindsides reserve QB Curtis Painter. The ball bounces right to Troy Polamalu, who snatches it out of the air and trots 16 yds into the end zone for an easy score.

But the Steeler defense fails to seal the deal, giving up a frustrating 10-play, 80-yd TD drive by the Colts to tie the game with 2 minutes left. Thankfully, Ben is Ben, and 2 minutes is WAY too much time. Roethlisberger calmly maneuvers the Steelers from his own 20 to the Colts 20, setting up Suisham's 38-yd game winner with 4 seconds left.
