Colts...24 Steelers...20

November 10, 2008|Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Ben Roethlisberger is a Super Bowl-winning quarterback in his fifth season.

That doesn't mean he can't learn a valuable lesson from Peyton Manning: Sometimes, inaccuracy beats impatience.

Manning, taking advantage of a fourth-quarter interception of a Roethlisberger pass that had been thrown in haste, found Dominic Rhodes out of the backfield on a 17-yard touchdown pass with 3:04 remaining. The play gave Indianapolis its only lead, and the Colts rallied to beat the Steelers, 24-20.

Manning also connected with Reggie Wayne for a 65-yard touchdown play on a tipped ball that wasn't well thrown and with Dallas Clark on a two-yard scoring pass six seconds before halftime after Roethlisberger had another pass intercepted.

Counting the postseason, the Colts (5-4) had dropped their last 12 in Pittsburgh, dating to a 41-7 win in 1968 when the Steelers (6-3) played at now-demolished Pitt Stadium.

Quoteworthy: "You'll never hear me say 'I' anything, but I lost this game." -- Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers quarterback
