Overtime watch in Pittsburgh

In 2002, the Falcons and Steelers went to overtime, tied at 34.  Four years later, they went to overtime, tied at 38.

They could end up going to overtime again, tied at nine.

The Falcons tied the game with 3:24 to play, choosing to take the three pointer after lining up to go for it on fourth down.  The Steelers threw a red flag to challenge the spot from the prior play, but the play was not reviewable.  The Falcons thereafter changed their minds and took the field goal.

Stay tuned.

    Clowns & Bungles both lose (big surprise) and the Ratbirds -will- lose on Monday.
    Steelers in 1st place atop the AFC North.
    Get used to it.

    Update: Rashard Mendenhall wins the game on a 52 yard TD run after the Steelers D stoned “Matty Ice”.

    PARavensJeff says “Go Falcons!!”
    I agree. Go home and lick your wounds. Did any Falcons even touch #34 on that final play?

    MENDENHALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    HUGE win for Pittsburgh – without Roeth and against a Falcons team they’ve struggled with the Steelers broke through.

    Hey Deb, what were all those Bungles (0-1) fans saying about karma all summer????? Hahahahaha.

  21. Deb says: Sep 12, 2010 7:03 PM

    @fan15062 …
    Trying to figure out what happened to their caped crusaders ;)
    Ravenmaniac …
    Uh-huh. Guess that’s the same Pittsburgh relative who told you that in his family’s experience, Roethlisberger was always polite, respectful, and accommodating to fans. Interesting how you only place value in his comments when you can say something negative on a Steelers thread. But you probably just wandered in here hoping RebaT. was calling me a bitch and telling me to F off so you’d have something to cheer again.
