Patriots Vs. Steelers Final Score: Roethlisberger's 365 Yards And Two Touchdowns Lead Steelers To 25-17 Win

In a crazy ending to the game, Tom Brady had the ball knocked out of his hand on the Patriots last possession. Troy Polamalu knocked the ball towards the Patriots end zone while it was on the ground and Ziggy Hood recovered it out of bounds, resulting in a safety and the icing on a 25-17 Steelers win.

The Steelers finished with 428 total yards including 365 yards passing by Ben Roethlisberger to the Patriots 213 yards and only 190 passing. The Steelers dominated in every facet, all coming back to time of possession where the Steelers held an almost 20 minute edge. Best way to beat Tom Brady is to not let Brady touch the ball.

The Steelers improve to 6-2 on the season and the Patriots drop to 5-2 as both teams know they could possibly see each other in the playoffs as both are in the hunt for the AFC crown. It's the fourth straight win for the Steelers and the loss halts the Patriots' three-game winning streak.
