It was over when ...

Game ball
Reed earns the honor for his kick. The field goal was not a chip shot, given the condition of the rain-soaked field. He had missed a 44-yarder in the third quarter.

Key stat
Ben Roethlisberger completed 4 of 5 passes for 44 yards on the Steelers' winning drive as Pittsburgh went away from the run and moved the ball through the air. Roethlisberger set a club record completing 85.7 percent of his passes (18-of-21), breaking Kordell Stewart's record (84.6 percent).
