Packers, 28, Steelers 31

Once again, Chris Boswell gets the ‘W’! With the game tied, and no time on the clock, Boswell hit a 53-yard field goal to send the Steelers to 9-2.

From Teresa Varley, Steelers.com:

“It’s a hard kick,” said Boswell. “The wind was pushing right to left. You aim a little far right and expect it to move a little bit.”

Brown had a monster game with 10 receptions for 169 yards and two touchdowns. Martavis Bryant had four receptions for 40 yards and a touchdown, while Le’Veon Bell had 12 receptions for 88 yards, and 20 carries for 95 yards.

The defense came up with some hugh plays, including two sacks by Cameron Heyward, who now has a career-high nine for the season.

“We preserved in the face of adversity,” said Coach Mike Tomlin. “We didn’t blink. We stayed together and made the necessary plays to win.

Tidbits from Cam’s post game interview:

Not ideal, the way we played. We’ll take the win.

We made the plays when we needed to, especially on offense and special teams.
