The Steelers were outplayed for much of Sunday’s game against the Colts, but when it mattered most, Pittsburgh found a way.
Pittsburgh trailed 10-0 early, 10-3 at halftime and 17-3 early in the third quarter. But the Steelers scored 17 unanswered points to pull out a 20-17 victory over Indianapolis.
Chris Boswell, who had a PAT blocked in the third quarter and missed a 37-yarder off the right upright in the fourth quarter, made a 33-yard field goal on the final play for a 20-17 victory.
It was the Steelers’ fourth consecutive victory.
Roethlisberger finished 19-for-31 for 236 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.
The Steelers began the game-winning drive at their own 15 with 3:10 remaining. Antonio Brown, who had only two catches for 15 yards until Pittsburgh’s final drive, caught a 32-yard pass to the Indianapolis 18 to get the Steelers in field-goal range. Brown finished with three catches for 47 yards.
Jacoby Brissett finished 14-of-24 for 222 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Ryan Shazier made the pick, which led to a touchdown and two-point conversion to tie the game. Chester Rogers made six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown.
