Two-Minute Drill: Steelers vs. Giants

A look at some of the key moments, decisions and quotes from the Steelers' victory over the Giants:

GAME BALL goes to: RB Isaac Redman After missing the previous two games with a high-ankle sprain, Redman returned to rush for a career-high 147 yards on 26 carries and the winning 1-yard TD. What's more, he had five runs of 11 yards or longer, the longest a 28-yarder on the final possession that allowed the Steelers to run out the clock.

It was the third consecutive game the Steelers had a 100-yard rusher, the first time they have done that since Willie Parker (2) and Najeh Davenport (1) in December, 2007.

"That's just the type of backfield we have," guard Ramon Foster said. "We knew in camp we had a very talented backfield. That's why we kept five guys."


A quick look at the top performances from Sunday's game:

1. HOT PLAY: Trailing 20-10 in the fourth quarter, the Steelers started their comeback when WR Mike Wallace caught a quick pass over the line of scrimmage and outraced three defenders -- Corey Webster, Jayron Hosley and Prince Amukamara -- across the field and down the sideline for a 51-yard touchdown to make it 20-17.

"I was just trying to get it out of there because I saw that it was zero coverage and I knew the field would be open," Wallace said. "I just wanted to catch the ball and move."

2. SEEING RED: Redman's 1-yard TD gave the Steelers a 24-20 lead with 4:02 remaining, but it was set up two plays earlier when he converted a third-and-2 from the Giants 9 with an 8-yard run. "By the end of the game we're pounding people with the run and they're tired of tackling the running back," Redman said.
