Steelers Get Big Win Down in Jacksonville

26-21 was the final score on the strength of a touchdown drive in the final 5 or so minutes of the game keyed by a great pass by Ben Roethlisberger while being sacked to Hines Ward and culminating in another Ben to Ward connection.  Mewelde Moore did a good job leading the Steelers running back by ad hoc committee running for 99 yards, but the offense was clearly lead by Ben as he went for over 300, and the Steelers defense stalling the Jacksonville running game and overcoming a horrible roughing the passer call on James Harrison to get the ball back to the offense with time to drive the field in an unhurried fashion.  Its a huge win for the Steelers as it sends them into their bye week at 4-1, which is 1.5 games clear of Baltimore and 2.5 games clear of Cleveland, teams they already have wins over.  Also, they need wins now, as after the bye week and a game with a Cincinnati team they cannot take lightly, the schedule gets somewhat harder: Giants, @ Redskins, Colts, Chargers, Bengals, @ Patriots, Cowboys, @ Titans, @ Ravens, Browns.

James Harrison had some comments on the bogus call that went against him:
