Default Who's Hot?

AFC North stock watch
Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

Let's see who's hot and who's not in the AFC North:

Who's hot?

1. Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Pittsburgh Steelers

A player who performs well for one quarter rarely makes it to the top of our "Who's hot" list, but Roethlisberger has earned a rare exception this week. His fourth quarter drive against the Baltimore Ravens with the division title and a No. 2 seed on the line was as clutch as it gets for a regular season game. He completed 7 of 11 for 89 yards and a touchdown pass to receiver Santonio Holmes on the game-winning drive. Although the last play will be disputed, Roethlisberger's ability to march the Steelers downfield in a hostile environment cannot be argued.

2. Ed Reed, S, Baltimore Ravens

Roethlisberger said it best after Sunday's game, calling Reed an "animal." Reed was all over the field, recording eight tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery against Pittsburgh. If not for a clutch tackle by Pittsburgh tackle Max Starks, Reed also may have reached the end zone for the fourth time this season and changed the course of Sunday's game.

3. Hines Ward, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers

Also lost in Roethlisberger's final drive was Ward's heroics Sunday. Ward had seven catches for 107 yards against Baltimore, and three of those catches came on the final drive. As much as the Ravens dislike Ward's playing style, they have to respect him. He's had some of his best games against one of the NFL's toughest defenses, and his most recent outing helped seal the division title.

(The Who's Not are Flacco, The Browns and McGahee)
