2010 Steelers 23 vs Bengals 7

On a rainy, windy afternoon in which the Steeler offense can only muster FGs, Troy Polamalu and LaMarr Woodley each return INTs for TDs. Polamalu snags 2 INTs on the day, the first coming with 4-1/2 minutes left in the half when Troy breaks on a pass intended for T.O., gathers it in and streaks toward the end zone, reaching for the pylon as he dives across the goal line for a 45-yd pick-6 to tie the game. Despite a strong, improvisational performance by Roethlisberger, who wears a visor to protect his broken nose while playing on a gimpy right foot, and despite dominating time of possession (including a 9-1/2-minute drive in the 2nd half that ends without points), the Steelers fail to get into the end zone on offense. But it doesn't matter as early in the 4th, Woodley drops into zone coverage, steps in front of a pass intended for Chad Ocho Cinco and takes it 14 yds to the house to give Pittsburgh an insurmountable 20-7 lead.
