Steelers Vs. Ravens: Ben Roethlisberger Throws Bomb To Antonio Brown, Rashard Mendenhall Scores TD To Take Lead

With the score tied at 24, and just over two minutes left in the game, the Pittsburgh Steelers faced a third-and-19 situation in their own territory. They elected to call a time out. It was a clock stoppage that the Baltimore Ravens, who seemed likely to receive a punt, surely appreciated.

Clearly, they weren't counting on Ben Roethlisberger to convert on third-and-long, and they certainly didn't count on him finding Antonio Brown to set up a first-and-goal. Big Ben did just that, launching a rocket to Brown, who had managed to gain space in the secondary and take the ball deep in Baltimore territory.

Running back Rashard Mendenhall was stuffed short of the goal line twice in a row, as the Ravens continued to minimize his effectiveness. And then, Mendenhall was sent up the gut yet again, and managed to will himself into the end zone.

An unsportsmanlike penalty, however, is going to back up the ensuing Steelers kickoff. The Ravens are down 31-24, and set to receive the ball with 1:33 remaining.
