2006 Steelers 24 at Browns 20

Ben Roethlisberger throws for 229 yds and 2 TDs in the 4th quarter alone, jamming 21 points into the final period to overcome 3 first half INTs (all on tipped balls, including a pick 6) and rallying the Steelers from a 10-point deficit, sealing the win with an improvisational 4-yd TD shovel pass to Willie Parker with just 32 seconds left. This exciting game also features an excellent performance by rookie WR Santonio Holmes, who after dropping his first pass, delivers a clutch performance, keyed by a pivotal 21-yd catch on 3rd and 20 and followed with the first TD catch his career. Holmes' TD comes on another great improvisational throw by Ben, who on 3rd and 6 avoids pressure, scrambles right, sheds a would-be tackler and then fires deep, across his body, to a wide open Holmes, who skips into the end zone for the first of Pittsburgh's three 4th quarter TDs. Probably my favorite game of the difficult 2006 season.
