Ben Roethlisberger’s career will likely continue for at least one more week. In a vintage Roethlisberger performance, the 18-year gunslinger delivered the 57th game-winning drive of his career to lift the Steelers to a 16-13 overtime win over the Ravens. The Steelers won the game on Chris Boswell’s 36-yard field goal with 1:59 left in overtime on a kick that was set up by Roethlisberger’s fourth-down completion to Ray-Ray McCloud four plays earlier.
At 9-7-1, the Steelers will clinch a playoff berth as long as Sunday night’s Raiders-Chargers game does not end in a tie. Along with taking care of business in Baltimore, Pittsburgh received outside help by virtue of the Jaguars’ upset win over the Colts. The loss officially knocked Baltimore (8-9) out of playoff contention.
