I'm not even sure this should be considered a highlight for Ben Roethlisberger. He escapes from seemingly impossible situations so often that the occurrence has become mundane.

Actually, that's a lie. It's still incredible every time he works his magic, extends a play and then finds the open receiver for a big gain.

Check out his latest rendition.

The virtuoso drops back, gives a large pump and then steps forward in the pocket. Seeing nobody open, he spins away from one Dallas Cowboys defender who is left grasping at air.

Then, while keeping his eyes down the field, he pulls out a jump-and-pump-fake number that would have made the college version of Tim Tebow proud. Naturally, a Cowboy went flying with the fake.

Next, Ben calmly sidesteps an over-pursuing defensive lineman, settles into the pocket and fires a pass to a suddenly wide open Heath Miller. 

Miller then turns upfield and outraces two defenders to the end zone. 

The play was incredible. And while the Steelers eventually went on to lose the game, the score knotted the game at 10 just before halftime.
