The Pittsburgh Steelers trailed the Oakland Raiders late, but they had an opportunity to close the gap to a two-score game and keep their hopes alive . The team needed a big play to find the endzone, and that is exactly what Ben Roethlisberger created when he went into vintage Big Ben mode to avoid the sack and find a wide open Emmanuel Sanders streaking across the field for the touchdown.

While the Steelers have remained alive, life would be a lot easier if Shaun Suisham would not have missed the two field goals earlier in the game.
