East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) - Isaac Redman scored the go-ahead
touchdown late in the fourth quarter, as the Pittsburgh Steelers rallied past
the New York Giants, 24-20, in a battle between two storied franchises that
have combined to win four of the past seven Super Bowls.
With Rashard Mendenhall and Jonathan Dwyer sidelined due to injuries, Redman
carried the ball 26 times for a career-high 147 yards for the Steelers (5-3),
who have won three in a row.
Ben Roethlisberger completed 21-of-30 passes for 216 yards, two touchdowns and
an interception for Pittsburgh, which was forced to fly into Newark on Sunday
morning due to the lack of hotel rooms in the New York-New Jersey area because
of damage from Hurricane Sandy.
Eli Manning connected on 10-of-24 passes for 125 yards and an interception for
the Giants (6-3), who had a four-game winning streak snapped.
Of course, Manning and Roethlisberger were both drafted back in 2004. Manning
was selected No. 1 overall by the San Diego Chargers and was traded to the
Giants. Since then, Manning has been Super Bowl MVP twice. Roethlisberger has
also won a pair of Super Bowl rings since being selected by the Steelers.
Andre Brown carried the ball seven times for 20 yards and a score. Ahmad
Bradshaw rushed for 48 yards on 15 carries.
