On the 737, like many aircraft, have flight spoilers that can be used to assist roll-control by deploying asymetrically. Asymetrical deflection helps kill-off lift on that wing, thus lowering it at a more rapid rate than the ailerons could alone. On the 737, once the yoke is turned past 7 degrees the flight spoilers begin to raise asymetrically (the spoilers are not up on the other side).
