Ben Roethlisberger leads fourth-quarter comeback for 20-17 win

AP

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.

JuJu Smith-Schuster was the team’s leading receiver with five catches for 97 yards and a touchdown. Le'Veon Bell had 26 carries for 80 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.

  1. Martavius Bryant is probably mad. AB and Smith-Schuster were targeted seven times and LaVeon Bell was targeted six times while Bryant was only targeted five times. He’ll probably send out another tweet that he wants to be traded unless he gets the ball more.

  2. When you struggle against a team like the Colts, you are not a serious SB contender. This game should put to rest all the Steelers in the SB talk.

    I guess you could say the same about a team who lost to KC and struggled against the Jets…….come on loser.

    When you are too much of an internet coward to admit your true NFL allegiance, everything you post should be deleted.

  5. After a moment’s thought this game makes me respect this year’s Pittsburgh squad even more than I would had they blown Indy out. Not a Steelers fan but look at it in the context of recent years and see this game for what it really was. That’s a game some of Tomlin’s previous teams would have found a way to lose. In that regard it was a good win. Good and ugly maybe but still good. At the end of the year they don’t count how just how many.

  9. From what I saw of this game, if the Colts had anybody who could…catch..the…damn…ball they would have won this game handily.

  10. With a few minutes left and the game on the line, there’s no one I’d rather have under center than Big Ben. I feel fortunate to witness the greatness. Crazy to think there were 10 players drafted above him in 04 draft.
