Steelers end five game losing streak with winning score as time expired

 

By Dale Grdnic PITTSBURGH — What a difference 10 days made for the Pittsburgh Steelers. After scoring just six points and no touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns and their league-worst defense, the Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for a team-record 503 yards to out-gun the Green Bay Packers and their second-ranked defense 37-36 Sunday night at Heinz Field. In a game that lasted 3 hours, 38 minutes, Roethlisberger needed every second to find rookie wideout Mike Wallace at the side of the end zone for the winning score as time expired. But the Steelers’ playoff hopes are not dead yet.
