2006 Steelers 38 at Falcons 41 OT

Big Ben is unstoppable unstoppable in this thriller until he gets knocked out with a scary blow to the head. Ben hits 15 of 20 for 235 yds and 3 TDs in the first half alone, but gets knocked unconscious early in the 3rd quarter on a vicious helmet-to-helmet cheap shot, remaining on the turf for over 5 minutes before being carted to the locker room. The lead changes hands 6 times as the Steelers squander a 17-7, fumbling 3 times and getting surprised by an onside kick while allowing Michael Vick to throw a career-high 4 TDs. Charlie Batch plays well in relief of Roethlisberger and Hines Ward has a HUGE day (8 catches, 171 yds, 3 TDs). Unfortunately, it's not enough. The Falcons win the toss in overtime, and after Vick scrambles away from Polamalu on 3rd and 9 to hit a long pass play, Morten Andersen finishes it with a 32-yd game-winning FG.
