Third kick's the charm: Chargers edge Steelers

Third kick's the charm: Chargers edge Steelers

On the national stage for the first time this season and with a chance to prove they are legitimate playoff contenders, the Los Angeles Chargers seized the moment in a come-from-behind, 33-30 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Now Pittsburgh heads into the final quarter of the season having its once comfortable lead in the AFC North trimmed to just a half-game over surging Baltimore (7-5).

One of the most prominent story-lines for Los Angeles will be the loss of running back Melvin Gordon with a MCL sprain.

It also was a total meltdown by the Steelers, with some help from the officials too. The Steelers (7-4-1) had been 174-0-1 when up by that much at home. The Pittsburgh Steelers dominated the Bolts in the first half and it looked as though things might get ugly. Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for a season-high 154 yards and a touchdown.

Allen caught a 10-yard touchdown pass from Rivers late in the third quarter on a play in which Pittsburgh defensive backs Sean Davis and Joe Haden collided going for the ball, which popped up in the air and landed in squarely in Allen's hands. After the two-point conversion was good, the Steelers led by only eight points.

The Steelers were able to pull themselves out of the quicksand.

However, the Steelers fought back to tie the game on a 12-play, 78-yard drive, punctuated by Ben Roethlisberger's 10-yard pass to running back Jaylen Samuels. The Chargers scored a touchdown in Cleveland in October on a play in which left tackle Russell Okung moved before the ball was hiked to Rivers.

The Chargers (9-3) erased a 16-point halftime deficit to win for the eighth time in nine games.

While comparing Ekeler to Conner would be unfair, the Chargers won't get the same production from their replacement as the Steelers are from theirs.

After two defensive offsides penalties, rookie kicker Michael Badgley nailed a 29-yard field goal as time expired, his first game victor as a pro. For the Steelers it was a historic night, in the worst way possible.

King then dashed 73 yards on a punt return, with Allen pulling in the 2-point conversion that tied the game at 23.
