Many thought this game could be a preview of the Super Bowl in Tampa, and if so, it was not a bad one, after the New York Football rallied to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers 21-14 at Heinz Field on Sunday.
After trailing 14-9 in the fourth quarter, Eli Manning and the Giants (6-1) went for it on fourth down and converted to Amani Toomer and they settled for a field goal to cut the Steelers lead to two.
On the assuing possession, a bad snap on the punt resulted in a Pittsburgh safety, and a tie ball game. The Giants responded with a touchdown pass to Kevin Boss to seal the game and send the first-place G-Men home happy.
Plaxico Burress did not start in Sunday's game due to him missing team meetings late in the week. It was Tom Coughlin's decision to not start Burress and he entered the game in the second quarter.
Ben Roethlisberger had four interceptions in the team's first home loss of the season and first loss in over a month. Mewelde Moor had a game-high 84 yards rushing and a touchdown in the loss.
