2010 Steelers 15 vs Falcons 9 OT

Behind picture-perfect blocking by Heath Miller, Hines Ward and David Johnson, Rashard Mendenhall bursts for a 50-yd TD in overtime as the Steelers overcome a late missed FG and a shaky start by backup QB Dennis Dixon. Mendenhall carries 22 times for 120 yds while Pittsburgh's defense holds the Falcons to just 58 yards rushing and 3 FGs. Atlanta ties the game on a 23-yd FG with 3 minutes left after deciding against going for it on 4th and 1 from the Steeler 5. Pittsburgh seems poised to win after a RIDICULOUS Troy Polamalu INT sets the Steelers up with great field position, but Jeff Reed -- who hit earlier from 52, 36 and 34 -- misses wide right on a 40-yd try with 39 seconds left. Atlanta receives the ball in OT and goes 3 and out, and Mendenhall takes it to the house on Pittsburgh's next play.
