Falcons, 13 Steelers 17

Game highlights courtesy of Teresa Varley:

  • The Steelers came back in the fourth quarter, when Bart Houston engineered a seven-play, 53-yard go-ahead drive. Houston hit Sammie Coates for an eight-yard gain, and James Conner added carries of 17 and 19 yards. Houston hit Justin Hunter, who extended his body for a six-yard touchdown and 17-13 lead to secure the win.
  • James Conner got a warm welcome from the Heinz Field crowd on his first carry in a Steelers uniform, a three-yard run. Conner, one of the team’s third round draft picks, missed last week’s Giants game but returned to action in a stadium he is familiar with. Conner came on strong late in the game, finishing with 20 carries for 98 yards, with 68 of those yards coming in the fourth quarter.
  • Anthony Chickillo was active on defense, with two sacks for a loss of 19 yards, including a 13-yarder, and a total of four tackles on the day.
  • Jordan Dangerfield had two interceptions. Dangerfield also added two tackles.

The Steelers will play again on Saturday against the Colts.
