5 things that stood out in win over Chargers

  • Running back Le'Veon Bell had the 'walk off' touchdown for the Steelers when he scored on a one-yard run on the final play of the game out of the wildcat. Bell carried the ball 21 times for 111 yards and added four receptions for 16 yards. But the play of the game was his game-winning touchdown with no time left on the clock.
  • Quarterback Mike Vick said after the game "It's not how you start, it's how you finish," and he finished strong. Vick led the team on two fourth quarter touchdown drives. Vick hit Markus Wheaton for a 72-yard touchdown to tie the game at 17-17. On the final drive Vick ran the ball for 24 yards to move the chains, and then hit Heath Miller at the one-yard line, eventually leading to Bell's touchdown run.
  • The defense held the Chargers to 52 yards rushing on the night, with the majority of it coming later in the game. The Chargers only had five yards rushing at halftime.
  • Cornerback Antwon Blake intercepted Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers and returned it 70 yards for a touchdown. It was Blake's first interception return for a touchdown in his career.
  • Chris Boswell got his Steelers career off to a positive start when he made his first NFL field goal, a 47-yarder in the second quarter. He also was perfect on extra points.
