The Pittsburgh Steelers didn't take their first lead of the Sunday Night Football games against the Baltimore Ravens until just five minutes were left in the fourth quarter, but the wait was worth it according to the video evidence. Ben Roethlisberger completed a 25-yard pass to Mike Wallace despite Antonio Brown being the intended receiving target.
Roethlisberger created something out of nothing, as he occasionally does, scrambling until his wide receivers were able to shake their defenders and get open. The Steelers quarterback got lucky and had two wide receivers open when he was done scrambling, too, as the pass that looked like it was intended for Brown was picked off by Wallace for the touchdown.
It sounds confusing, but watching the video below should make the above paragraphs make sense.
The Steeleers now lead 20-16 with about four and a half minutes left on the game clock.
