2004 Steelers 19 at Bengals 14

Bettis runs for 129 yards and the Steelers' blitzing defense creates havoc, keeping the NFL's longest winning streak growing. Roethlisberger finishes 15 of 21 and throws the game-winning TD, but also loses 54 yards on 7 sacks as the Bengals come at him from all sides. In spite of his uncharacteristically shaky play, Ben wins his 7th NFL Rookie of the Week award for his efforts. Linebacker James Farrior has a 14-yard interception return to blunt the Bengals' momentum in the first half, and in the second half, Cinci's offense manages only 42 yards and two first downs. The clinching play comes with 2:38 left and Carson Palmer under heavy pressure in his end zone. He throws the ball away, drawing a grounding call and a safety, after which Cinci fans -- keeping it "classy" as always -- throw beer bottles onto the field in disgust.
