The Steelers’ defense started things off early. Ryan Clark intercepted a deflected pass to give the Steelers great position deep in Arizona territory. The offense was able to capitalize when Roethlisberger hit a wide open Heath Miller for the first touchdown of the game.
Roethlisberger’s second touchdown was a beautiful 95-yard touchdown pass to Mike Wallace. Roethlisberger’s pass hit Wallace in stride, and Wallace did the rest. It turned out to be the longest pass play in Steelers history.
