2010 Steelers 19 at Bills 16 OT

A CRAZY game. Pittsburgh leads 13-0 after a dominating first half, outgaining Buffalo 225-51 and grinding out a 4:1 time of possession advantage behind Mendenhall (36 att, 151 yds, 1 TD). But late in the 3rd, a helmet-to-helmet roughing call against James Harrison gives Buffalo new life. Fitzpatrick dumps a 3rd-and-10 screen to Fred Jackson, who breaks a tackle and splits the seam for a stunning 65-yd TD. Buffalo soon adds a pair of FGs, the second set up by a costly Mendenhall fumble, to tie the game at 13. Leading 16-13 with 2:51 left, the Troy Polamalu appears to strike a decisive blow with a diving INT at the goal line. But the Steelers (penalized 10 times for 107 yds including 5 holding penalties) can't seal the deal, and the Bills add a FG to force OT. Enter WR Stevie Johnson, who has 7 catches in the game, but also 4 drops. In OT, Johnson drops his 5th. After trading punts, the Bills have a 1st & 10 from the Steeler 40. Fitz drops back, has plenty of time and dimes a PERFECT bomb to a WIDE open Johnson behind Taylor and Clark at the goal line. The ball hits Johnson in stride, perfectly over the shoulder, right in the hands... and slips right through them. The Bills soon punt and given a second chance, Ben responds with a 13-play, 58-yd drive capped by Suisham's 41-yd game winner.
