Steelers 37,

Packers 36

PITTSBURGH - Ben Roethlisberger ended the game the way he started it, by throwing a TD pass to Mike Wallace, a 19-yarder on the final play that lifted Pittsburgh over Green Bay.

The win ended the Packers' five-game skid and the Steelers' five-game losing streak.

The Packers stalled in their playoff run as they couldn't hold leads of 28-27 and 36-30 in a frantic fourth quarter that was much like Oakland's 27-23 win in Pittsburgh two weeks ago, when the lead changed hand five times in the final nine minutes.
