Pittsburgh teased with the prospect of making a comeback in the second half, getting as close as 27-23, but then Jay Cutler dove headfirst into a safety on a scramble. According to Cris Collinsworth, that’s the most inspiring and heroic thing a quarterback can do. The Bears scored soon after on an amazing catch by Earl Bennett in the corner of the end zone to make it a two-score game again. Then Ben Roethlisberger had his second turnover returned for a touchdown. This one was a fumble that looked like he pitched it backward. Julius Peppers caught it and easily took it the rest of the way to ice this one.
