Game Recap


9/12/10 Vs. Atlanta Falcons With Ben Roethlisberger out under suspension until game 5 of the season, QB Dennis Dixon steps in.  In this huge game for Ward, he leads the Steelers with six receptions for 108 yards and catches his 900th career pass.  Ward has now become the first Steelers wide receiver ever to surpass 11,000 receiving yards.  He also breaks the team record for 100-yard receiving games (26) previously held by Hall of Fame WR John Stallworth.  Back is S Troy Polamalu, who was out most of last season with injuries, who makes a difference in the Steelers defense.  RB Rashard Mendenhall runs 50 yards for a touchdown 2:35 into overtime winning the game.  It was the third overtime game in as many Falcons/Steelers matchups. W 15-9 in OT
9/19/10 @ Tennessee Titans On a handoff from Mewelde Moore on a reverse, WR Antonio Brown scores on an 89-yard kickoff return to open the game, stunning the Titans.  QB Charlie Batch comes in early in the game after Dixon injures his knee. Ward has one catch for nine yards.   Polamalu leaps over the line to make the tackle on QB Collins for a Titans' loss on first-and-goal.  Defense steps up to force seven turnovers, and ends Tennessee Titans' RB Chris Johnson's 100-yard rushing streak at 12 games. W 19-11
9/26/10 @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers With Batch in as QB and having an incredible game, Ward has three catches for 34 yards. On a nine-yard TD pass prior to halftime, Ward marks his 80th career touchdown (79 receiving, one rushing), tying him with former RB Jerome Bettis for second on the team's all-time touchdowns list.  Ward has caught a pass in 181 consecutive games. W 38-13
10/3/10 Vs. Baltimore Ravens Ward has two catches for 14 yards.   In this fight to the end, Ravens' WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh scores on an 18 yard pass from QB Joe Flacco with 32 seconds remaining, giving the Ravens the win 17-14. L 14-17
10/17/10 Vs. Cleveland Browns Ward starts his 170th career game and with QB Ben Roethlisberger back, finishes with five catches for 54 yards. Ward pushes his streak to 183 straight games with a reception.   In the 3rd quarter, Ward fights his way through two Browns' defensive players for an eight-yard TD pass from Roethlisberger, his 81st career touchdown (80 receiving, one rushing), moving him into sole possession of second place on the Steelers' all-time touchdowns' list, trailing only Franco Harris (100).   LB James Harrison puts a hit on Browns WR Joshua Cribbs that takes Cribbs out of the game. (Harrison is later fined $75,000 for the hit).  The Steelers shut down the Browns offense. W 28-10
10/24/10 @ Miami Dolphins In another record breaking game for Ward, he has a season-high 131 yards receiving on seven.  Ward has his 27th career 100-yard receiving game, which is the most in team history and his second of the season.  In the 2nd quarter, Ward hauls in a 21-yard TD pass from Roethlisberger.  Ward becomes just the fifth player in Steelers' history to post more than 500 career points (502).  With Pittsburgh trailing 22-20 and under 3 minutes left in the game, Roethlisberger fumbles as he dives across the goal line, leaving both teams scrambling for the ball.  Initially ruled a TD, it's overturned on replay, but the Referees are unable to determine possession, therefore the Steelers retain the ball.  With 2:26 left, K Jeff Reed kicks an 18-yard FG for the win. W 23-22
10/31/10 @ New Orleans Saints With the Saints looking like the team who won last year's Super Bowl, Ward has only three catches for 15 yards. In the 4th quarter, Ward makes the tackle on Saints S Darren Sharper after Heath Miller fumbles.   Mendenhall makes the only Steelers' TD of the game. L 10-20
11/8/10 @ Cincinnati Bengals Ward has three receptions for 10 yards, including an eight-yard TD pass from Big Ben late in the first half giving him four on the season and 15 career touchdowns against the Bengals, which is the most TDs for Ward against any single opponent.  With the defense holding strong, the Steelers win. W 27-21
11/14/10 Vs. New England Patriots Ward has his streak of 186 consecutive games with at least one reception snapped after leaving the first half with a concussion after a helmet to helmet hit by Pats' DE James Sanders, although Ward argues to get back into the game.  The streak started on November 9, 1998 versus the Green Bay Packers and is the third-longest streak in NFL history.  Roethlisberger's 3 TD passes in the 4th quarter aren't enough to overcome the domination of Brady and the Patriots. L 26-39
11/21/10 Vs. Oakland Raiders Playing old school football, the Steelers defense doesn't stop, overcoming a club-record 163 yards in penalties to stomp all over the Raiders.  In a stunning move, Raiders DE Richard Seymour punches Roethlisberger in the jaw with an open hand after Big Ben celebrates throwing a TD pass to WR Emmanuel Sanders in the 3rd quarter.  Ward has three receptions for 28 yards. W 35-3
11/28/10 @ Buffalo Bills Ward has a game-high 107 yards receiving on seven catches and posts his third 100-yard receiving game of the season and 28th of his career.  K Shaun Suisham hits a 41-yard field goal with 2:14 left in overtime to secure the Steelers' 19-16 victory.  The drive is on for the playoffs. W 19-16   in OT
12/5/10 @ Baltimore Ravens With both the Steelers and Ravens coming into the game at 8-3, tied for first in the division, this bitter rivalry is one for the ages.  Roethlisberger gets a bloodied and broken nose in the first half by Ravens DT Haloti Ngata, on top of an already broken foot.  With 3:13 left in the game and Baltimore leading 10-6, Polamalu sparks Pittsburgh's comeback win by blitzing in to strip sack the ball from Flacco.   Steelers LB LaMarr Woodley recovers the ball and returns it 19 yards to the Ravens 9, setting up Pittsburgh's winning TD.  Ward has one catch for 13 yards. W 13-10
12/12/10 Vs. Cincinnati Bengals Ward has a game-high 115 yards receiving on eight catches, marking his fourth 100-yard receiving game of the year and 29th of his career. W 23-7
12/19/10 Vs. New York Jets This game is Ward's 200th career game.  He has two receptions for 34 yards.  Standing up to the Steelers Defense, the Jets win in Pittsburgh for the first time after going 0-7 here since the 1970 merger.  Despite losing, the Steelers (10-4) are informed after the game ended that they have secured a playoff spot via a series of complicated strength-of-schedule tiebreakers.   L 17-22
12/23/10 Vs. Carolina Panthers In this Thursday night game, Ward has three receptions for 38 yards.  Roethlisberger finds WR Mike Wallace on a 43-yard scoring pass and later hits Sanders on a 35-yard completion, setting up Mendenhall's 1-yard TD run, giving the Steelers a 20-0 halftime lead.  Inching closer to the division title, Roethlisberger's deep passing game cruises the Steelers to the win. W 27-3
1/2/11 @ Cleveland Browns Ward catches a three-yard TD pass from WR Antwaan Randle El in the 3rd quarter, his fifth receiving TD of the season and 83rd of his career.  He has five receptions for 45 yards.  The Pittsburgh Steelers crush the Browns and win the AFC North, securing a first-round playoff bye. W 41-9
AFC Divisional Game 1/15/11 Vs. Baltimore Ravens In another epic Steelers-Ravens battle, Ward plays in his 15th career playoff game.  Ward hauls in an eight-yard TD in the 3rd quarter, giving him 9 for his career in the postseason, tying him for second on the team's all-time postseason list with Lynn Swann.  Ward also ties the team postseason record for consecutive games with a reception at 15, tying John Stallworth on the team's all-time postseason list.  The biggest play of the game is Roethlisberger's 58-yard bomb to rookie WR Antonio Brown, who holds onto balancing it between his helmet and his hand.  Pittsburgh scoring with less than two minutes remaining in the game, taking the lead and winning the trip to the AFC Championship Game.  This is the third time in 3 tries that the Steelers have knocked the Ravens from out of postseason. W 31-24
AFC Championship Game 1/23/11 Vs. New York Jets The Steelers Defense stops the Jets short this time.  William Gay went 22 yards after fellow DB Ike Taylor sacks Jets QB Mark Sanchez and the ball comes loose. Pittsburgh then stops the Jets four times inside the 2 to hang on to the lead. With two receptions, Ward has now caught a pass in 16 consecutive postseason games, one shy of tying Hall of Famer John Stallworth's club record of 17.  The Steelers win their third AFC Championship Game in six years and head to the Super Bowl. W 24-19
Super Bowl XLV 2/6/11 Vs. Green Bay Packers The Pittsburgh Steelers.  The Green Bay Packers.  Two of the oldest, most respected and titled teams in the NFL.  Between them they score seven TDs but it's a game defined by hard-hitting defenses.  The Packers' defense forces three turnovers, including two interceptions of Big Ben.  After mounting a furious comeback with the Packers leading 28-25 midway through the 4th quarter, a costly Steelers turnover hands the momentum and the game to Green Bay.  Ward has seven receptions for 78 yards and an 8-yard TD pass from Roethlisberger.  He has now caught a pass in 17 consecutive games, tying him with Hall of Famer John Stallworth for consecutive playoff games with at least one reception at 17. L 25-31
RECAP   Ward caught his 900th career pass and became the first Steelers wide receiver to surpass 11,000 receiving yards and is just the fifth player in NFL history to have 11,000 receiving yards.

He broke the team record for 100-yard receiving games (29 for his career), previously held by Hall-of-Fame WR John Stallworth.
