Set your DVR’s for noon (ET) when the NFL Network will re-air one of the “Classic Games” –

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New York Giants (12/18/04):

Ben Roethlisberger outduels Eli Manning throwing for 316 yards and engineering a fourth-quarter comeback in battle of highly-touted rookie quarterbacks.

From an article featured in USA Today, post-game:

ben_eliBen Roethlisberger was not about to be upstaged by Eli Manning.

In a surprise shootout between two rookie quarterbacks, Roethlisberger outdueled Manning as the Pittsburgh Steelers won their franchise-record 12th straight game, a wild 33-30 triumph over the New York Giants.

The last two teams to win 12 straight games in the same season won the Super Bowl. New England accomplished the feat last season and Denver did it in 1998.

“I don’t ever want to remember what it is like to lose,” said Roethlisberger, who has won his last 25 starts dating to his days at Miami of Ohio. “We didn’t play our best game of the season, but we found a way to win.”

While Manning gained all the attention when he was selected first overall in April’s draft, Roethlisberger slid all the way to the Steelers (13-1) at No. 11.

Roethlisberger already has marched into the NFL record book for consecutive wins by a rookie. He has enjoyed a storybook season, leading the Steelers to the AFC North Division title while improving to 12-0 since taking over for the injured Tommy Maddox.

“I know he’s been making some good decisions with the game on the line,” Steelers coach Bill Cowher said of his quarterback. “He’s the leader of our football team.”
