Ben Roethlisberger


Here's a link to the controversial Ben Roethlisberger pass/fumble/drop-off.

Osi Umenyiora made contact with Big Ben's arm, then the ball bounced into the arms of Michael Boley.

Boley then returned it for the Giants' second touchdown, giving his team what was then a 14-7 advantage.

Despite Hurricane Sandy hitting the New York-New Jersey area earlier this week, the Giants (6-2) and the Steelers (4-3) will still face off at 4:25 p.m. Sunday in MetLife Stadium.

It's a match-up of ?two traditional powerhouses, with the Giants and Steelers having made a combined five appearances in the Super Bowl since 2006.

Pittsburgh has won the most Super Bowl championships with 6 -- one for the other ring finger, and New York has -- of course -- two in the past five years.

Super Bowl XLV - Packers 31, Steelers 25

As predicted, Super Bowl XLV was entertaining more than anything else.? A traditional clash where three-yards-a-cloud-of-dust is a thing of the past in the NFL in this day and age.

America has been spoiled. The past three Super Bowls have each provided an enthralling football contest. The games were not decided until the final minutes (or in two cases the final minute), they were classic bouts worthy of permanent enshrinement in the archives of football history.

Because of this trio, it may be easy to forget that all too often; the best post-season action is served up during the Conference Championship round. 1998, for example, saw the Broncos edge out a valiant Jets effort as the Falcons upset the favored Vikings in a thriller. The Super Bowl that these two games spawned was far from memorable.

And, they might even discover how to reach that game without having to do it the hard way.

Chargers QB Philip Rivers was a New York Giant for about a minute during the early moments of the 2004 NFL draft.? After the Giants selected him fourth overall, he was traded to San Diego along with a booty of draft picks in return for top pick Eli Manning.

These players will always be connected through that trade, and with Miami of Ohio's Ben Roethlisberger, who was passed over in favor of them and picked eleventh by the Steelers.

Rivers has not worn a football jersey in New York since that day.? He has yet to face a New York audience as a player.? None of this is his doing.? The schedule has kept him out of Giants Stadium until now.
