Steelers beat Colts on last-second field goal
INDIANAPOLIS -- Chris Boswell's 33-yard field goal as time expired rallied the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 20-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday in Lucas Oil Stadium.
Ben Roethlisberger's 32-yard pass to Antonio Brown to the Colts' 18-yard line with 35 seconds left set up Boswell's winning kick after he had missed a 37-yarder with 6:17 remaining that hit the right upright.
Pittsburgh (7-2) rallied from a 17-3 third-quarter deficit, finishing the game on a 17-0 run.
The Steelers tied it at 17 with 11:52 remaining in the fourth quarter on Roethlisberger's 7-yard touchdown pass to tight end Vance McDonald and 2-point conversion pass to Martavis Bryant. That score came after linebacker Ryan Shazier's interception of a Jacoby Brissett pass at the Colts' 10-yard line.
Pittsburgh sliced the deficit to 17-9 with 7:47 left in the third quarter on Roethlisberger's 7-yard touchdown pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster. The extra point was blocked.
Indianapolis had extended its lead to 17-3 with 12:24 to play in the third quarter on a 63-yard touchdown pass from Brissett to Chester Rogers.
The Colts (3-7) took a 10-3 halftime lead, getting a 60-yard touchdown pass down the left sideline from Brissett to Donte Moncrief with 14:52 remaining in the second quarter and a 48-yard field goal from Adam Vinatieri with 5:51 left in the half for a 10-0 lead.
Pittsburgh finally got on the board with 30 seconds remaining in the half on Boswell's 41-yard field goal.
The Steelers were held to a season-low 100 first-half yards, with Roethlisberger going 7 of 15 for 72 yards with one interception during the first 30 minutes.
Brissett, on the other hand, was 9 of 13 for 130 yards and one touchdown before halftime.
