Big Ben came up big for the Steelers on Monday night. After dropping to an 11-point deficit, Ben Roethlisberger needed to come through for Pittsburgh on the road -- and he did. Two fourth-quarter scores later, the Steelers signal-caller led his team to a critical victory to keep them in the AFC playoff race, good enough to win Week 11's GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week.
NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT NOMINEES
Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons
Falcons fly into first place:Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan threw for a touchdown and kicker Matt Bryant had four field goals as the Atlanta Falcons edged the Carolina Panthers, 19-17, on the road. Bryant's fourth field goal gave the Falcons the lead with 2:08 left in the game, and then the Falcons' defense withstood the Panthers' late attempts at a rally. With a win over the Panthers, the Falcons are now in the thick of the NFC South division title race.
Shaun Hill, St. Louis Rams
Rams stifle potent Broncos: The St. Louis Rams defense shut down one of the NFL's most explosive offenses, and quarterback Shaun Hill threw for 220 yards and a touchdown in a 22-7 win over the Denver Broncos. The Broncos hadn't scored fewer than 20 points this season and had scored 30 or more in five of the previous six games. The Rams intercepted Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning twice, and rookie defensive lineman Aaron Donald had a key fourth-quarter sack on a fourth-and-4 play from the Rams' 28-yard line.
Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers
Steelers overcome double-digit deficit: An 11-point deficit didn't faze the Pittsburgh Steelers, who scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to surge past the Tennessee Titans, 27-24, on "Monday Night Football". Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger connected with receiver Antonio Brown for the go-ahead 12-yard touchdown pass. Earlier in the quarter, running back Le'Veon Bell -- who finished the game with 204 yards rushing -- brought the Steelers to within four points with a 5-yard touchdown run.
