  • Catch or not? NFL clarifies why Steelers' touchdown call was reversed

Roethlisberger completed 22 of 30 for 281 yards with two touchdowns and the pick.

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.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told CBS Sports that it was Shazier's decision to attend the game, and this is part of his rehabilitation process.

The 25-year-old is recovering from spinal stabilization surgery.

Prior to leaving with his injury, Brown caught 2 passes for 24 yards on Sunday. The drive eventually stalled when Cameron Fleming allowed Bud Dupree to sack Brady, which yielded Gostkowski's 46-yard field goal to cut it to 24-19 with four minutes remaining.

On Sunday, in a battle for the No. 1-seed in the AFC between the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers, the Steelers were driving while trailing by 3 points with 0:28 remaining. He walked off the field slowly, but without a noticeable limp, and was immediately taken to the blue, pop-up medical tent on the sideline.

The AFC again runs through New England. The Patriots later evened things up at 10-10, but the Steelers pulled ahead on a 4-yard pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Martavis Bryant to hold a 17-10 halftime lead. Bell, limited to just 11 snaps in Foxborough last January, churned up clock and yards.

It looked like the Steelers were going to steal a victory, as JuJu Smith-Schuster beat Eric Rowe and several missed tackles for 69 yards on their first play of the next drive.

Roethlisberger opted to go for the wind instead, a decision now that could have ramifications in January.
