Steelers WR Antonio Brown ruled out with calf injury

  • Jesse James had his touchdown catch overturned

Seeing a smiling Shazier waving a Terrible Towel seemed to inspire not only the Heinz Field crowd but the Steelers defense, even if it was only temporary. The Patriots scored with just over a minute left to take the lead.

After the Steelers took control for most of the game both in possession time and the scoreboard, the Patriots had Tom Brady lead another game-winning drive that resulted in a winning touchdown for Dion Lewis with 55 seconds left in the game.

Brown attempted to catch a pass in the end zone when a Patriots defensive back appeared to roll over his left leg.

No receiver has ever earned the award, which Brady has won twice. but Brown made it clear that as much as he would appreciate the recognition, he'd rather have a Super Bowl ring. The Steelers then ruled Brown out before the start of the third quarter.

The Steelers receiver, who earlier in the game became the first receiver in National Football League history with five straight 100-reception seasons, was helped off the field without putting any pressure on his left leg. Once the Steelers officially report his injury, we'll circle back on Brown's status. Brady was average at times but stepped up in the pocket for big deliveries at crucial moments, usually to Gronkowski.

Gronkowski had nine catches for 168 yards, with a two-point conversion, saving some of his best work for the team's remarkable game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter when he had receptions of 26, 26 and 17 yards. Martavis Bryant has stepped up with three catches for 53 yards and a touchdown so far.

Roethlisberger completed 22 of 30 for 281 yards with two touchdowns and the pick. And a play later, Rowe was a fingertip shy of breaking up a pass in the right seam for Eli Rogers, who scooted away for an 18-yard touchdown.

Keep that fact in mind, because after a 69-yard reception by JuJu Smith-Schuster came the 10-yard would-be go-ahead touchdown from James.

The Steelers thought they had taken the lead with 28 seconds to play when Ben Roethlisberger found the tight end.

Roethlisberger had one last chance to win it in the closing seconds, but his pass was deflected and grasped by Patriots safety Duron Harmon.

The win gets the Patriots to 11-3 and puts them in first place in the AFC, as they now have the tiebreaker over the Steelers, who are now also 11-3.
