NFL Week 10: Steelers edge Colts on last-second field goal; Patriots rout Broncos – Baltimore Sun

Steelers 20, Colts 17: Ben Roethlisberger‘s 32-yard completion to Antonio Brown with 35 seconds set up a 33-yard field goal from Chris Boswell as time expired Sunday, giving Pittsburgh a 20-17 come-from-behind win at Indianapolis.

The Steelers (7-2) have won four straight overall and five in a row in the series.

But it sure wasn’t easy as the Colts (3-7) held Roethlisberger, Brown and Le’Veon Bell in check. Pittsburgh needed two second-half TD passes from Roethlisberger to fight its way out of a 17-3 third-quarter deficit. And Roethlisberger reverted to his traditional form on the Steelers’ final possession.

The two-time Super Bowl champion methodically marched the Steelers 70 yards in the final 3:10 to give Pittsburgh its only lead.

Roethlisberger was 19 of 31 for 236 yards with one interception. Bell had 26 carries for 80 yards and Brown, the league’s leading receiver, caught three passes for 47 yards.

Avoiding Von Miller all night and throwing for 266 yards on 25-of-34 passing, Brady improved to 8-9 against the Broncos, the only team he has a losing record against, and won for just the fourth time in 11 trips to Denver.

His 86th regular-season road win broke a
