Game Report: Steelers lose James Conner, big lead to the Chargers

Third kick's the charm: Chargers edge Steelers Game Report: Steelers lose James Conner, big lead to the Chargers

The Steelers jumped out to a 23-7 halftime lead, then saw that lead erased by a bevy of mistakes, miscues and outright follies as they lost to the Chargers, 33-30, on a 29-yard Michael Badgely field goal Sunday night at Heinz Field.

So the longtime Los Angeles quarterback gathered his teammates around him and delivered a very blunt message. "They had no more timeouts left. It's good to win on a kick like this". A two-point conversion later, and the game was tied at 23. They are now 174-1-1 when leading by at least 16 at home.

Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin called it "unfortunate" but declined to criticize the officials.

"We didn't establish rhythm in the start of the second half because we had a couple of drives killed by penalties. holding penalties.it's catastrophic", he said.

"I am going to keep my mouth shut", Tomlin said. "I'm going to do that [be] cause I've sent enough money to NY". The pass was under thrown by Roethlisberger and James did a heck of a job by reading it, and taking it back for 36 yards.

Keenan Allen was in the right place at the right time for a wild touchdown grab during the third quarter of the Chargers' matchup with the Steelers.

After forcing Pittsburgh to punt, Desmond King returned the punt 73 yards for a score.

Instead, Burns was overly aggressive and mistimed things which resulted in a game-winning field goal.

Qatar is the world's biggest supplier of liquefied natural gas (LNG), producing nearly 30 percent of the world's natural gas. Since reaching its four-year peak in early October, global prices for crude have dropped more than 25 percent.

Los Angeles went three-and-out on its next possession, which set the Steelers up at the Chargers' 48-yard line.

It's unclear at this point if Conner will be forced to miss any time. Conner added 60 yards rushing and two touchdowns before leaving in the fourth quarter with a lower leg injury.

"These guys, they believe", Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said. "The consequences, we'll absorb it". The Chargers trail Kansas City (10-2) by a game in the AFC West.

The Chargers ended up throwing a 46-yard touchdown pass from Philip Rivers to Travis Benjamin. It was Benjamin's first touchdown since Week 17 of last season. Safety Derwin James is the answer to that question.

Down 23-7 at the half, the Chargers (9-3) became the first visiting team to win in Pittsburgh after trailing by 16. Rivers's pass deflected off of two Steelers defenders colliding before Allen, positioned behind the play, reached forward and hauled in the score off of the bounce.

Yet another opportunity presents itself as the Los Angeles Chargers come to town in what looks to be a game that could potentially determine playoff seeding, with both teams having similar records.

Los Angeles forced the Steelers into another three-and-out on their next possession. Roethlisberger hit Brown for a 9-yard gain on Pittsburgh's second play from scrimmage and again for 46 yards on the following snap.
