HERE to see the video at NFL.com The Steelers somehow came out of the daze they seemed to be in early he third quarter when Roethlisberger hooked up with tight end Heath Miller for a touchdown.  The Steelers were within seven points of tying the game.  The Steelers defense came to life, too.  Former LSU standout Ryan Clark picked off a Joe Flacco pass and returned it for seventeen yards.  Roethlisberger hit one of his favorite targets a short time later when Hines Ward caught an 8 yard touchdown pass.  With the extra point made, the game was tied. All of a sudden there was a real battle on the field. On the Ravens very next possession, late in the third quarter, quarterback Joe Flacco fumbled the ball, which Pittsburgh recovered.  The quarter ended and shortly thereafter the Steelers capitalized on the fumble recovery and turned it into three points to take the lead for the first time since mid-way through the first quarter. Baltimore fought valiantly and came back to tie the game with only 3:54 left to go when kicker Billy Cundiff nailed a 24 yarder. Roetlisberger and company took the field at their own 19 and began their march down the field – a march that would end with a powerful 2 yard run from running back Rashard Mendenhall which resulted in the game-winning touchdown.]]]]> ]]>
