Just like Terry Bradshaw did 40 years ago Sunday, Ben Roethlisberger threw a pass that will be remembered for a while in Pittsburgh.
This one didn’t turn out quite as well for the Pittsburgh Steelers, whose playoff hopes ended Sunday in a 13-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
The only thing immaculate about Roethlisberger’s pass to Mike Wallace was its proximity to the heavens when it should have been heading toward Wallace’s hands. Reggie Nelson intercepted the overthrown ball and returned it to the Steelers’ 46-yard line with 14 seconds to go.
Andy Dalton threw a 21-yard pass to A.J. Green, and Josh Brown kicked a 43-yard field goal to give the Bengals a 13-10 lead with four seconds left.
Not nearly enough time for an Immaculate Reception redux.
Sunday’s game was played on the 40th anniversary of a day that exorcised 40 years of frustration for the Steelers and signaled the dawn of a successful 40-year chapter in franchise history.
Does this mean the next 40 years will be like th...

For the second straight week, Ben Roethlisberger threw an interception which ultimately...
