2018 Steelers 20 at Jaguars 16

For 3 quarters, the Steelers get their butts kicked, repeatedly giving up big runs and being manhandled in the trenches. Jacksonville only has 3 FGs to show for their first half dominance until late in the 3rd when Roethlisberger throws his 3rd pick of the day, setting up a seemingly effortless 80-yd march to give the Jags what appears to be an insurmountable 16-0 lead.

But with a minute left in the 3rd, Ben finally lets the lightning out of the bottle, pump-faking and launching a bomb to a WIDE open Antonio Brown for a 78-yd TD. As the offense wakes up, so does the defense, holding Jacksonville without a single 1st down for the rest of the game. While James Conner suffers a pair of HUGE dropped passes -- one on 4th down and another that was a sure TD -- Juju Smith-Schuster bails him out with a pair of spectacular acrobatic grabs, and with 2:28 remaining, Ben hits Vance McDonald with a touch pass placed perfectly over coverage in the back of the end zone to narrow the score to 16-13.

The defense forces another 3-and-out, and Ben coolly drives the Steelers 68 yds to the J-ville 2. The Jags appear to thwart the comeback with an INT in the end zone, but a blatant facemask overturns the play. With 5 seconds left, Ben rolls right and suddenly dives into the line, reaching the ball just beyond the goal line to complete a remarkable comeback.
