  • Steelers tight end Jesse James has a knee down before crossing the goal line with a pass from QB Ben Roethlisberger in what appeared to be a touchdown with 28 seconds to go. The play was overturned on review however with officials saying the ball did

Brown is considered one of the toughest Steelers.

Brown attempted to catch a pass in the end zone when a Patriots defensive back appeared to roll over his left leg.

That set up Dion Lewis' 8-yard touchdown run, which was followed by a two-point conversion pass to - who else? Two plays later, with the clock running and no timeouts, Roethlisberger faked a spike and fired a pass intended for Eli Rogers that was intercepted by safety Duron Harmon. He said that they do not expect Brown to return to the field for this game.

To make matters worse for Pittsburgh, their star wide receiver Antonio Brown suffered a calf injury in the first half and never returned to the game. Official overturned the play on the grounds that James did not have control of the ball.

Roethlisberger completed 22 of 30 for 281 yards with two touchdowns and the pick.




Brown has elevated himself into the MVP conversation with 101 catches, 1,533 yards and nine touchdowns, including several plays that clinched last-minute wins.

The Patriots trailed 24-16 going into the fourth quarter before a 46-yard field goal from Stephen Gostkowski cut Pittsburgh's advantage to 24-19. If New England can handle its business at home against the Bills and Jets, its 13-3 record would be strong enough to ensure the AFC's road to Super Bowl 52 runs through Foxborough.

All this modern era of Pittsburgh Steelers football knows is heartbreak and misery at the hands of the New England Patriots.

Before you could blink, JuJu Smith-Schuster answered with a 69-yard catch down the left sideline, and it looked like the Steelers would steal a victory.

Bryant, suspended all of last season for violating the league's substance abuse policy, made a pretty one-handed touchdown catch late in the first half that put Pittsburgh up 17-10 at the break.
