Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Jeff Reed's 32-yard field goal with 11 seconds remaining gave the Pittsburgh Steelers a narrow 11-10 victory over the San Diego Chargers at a snowy and blustery Heinz Field.
Down 10-8 with 6:41 to play, Pittsburgh marched 73 yards downfield. Ben Roethlisberger converted a key 3rd-and-6 from the San Diego 41 with a seven- yard completion to Hines Ward, and Santonio Holmes caught a 13-yard pass the play after. The team ran down the rest of the clock to set up Reed's field goal at the end.
Roethlisberger went 31-for-41 passing for 308 yards for the Steelers (7-3), who hold a one-game edge over Baltimore for the top spot in the AFC North after the Ravens lost to the Giants. Willie Parker ran for 115 yards on 25 carries, and Ward caught 11 passes for 124 yards in the victory.
Philip Rivers struggled to fight the wintry conditions, completing 15-of-26 passes for 162 yards and two interceptions for the Chargers (4-6), who sit two games behind first-place Denver in the AFC West after the Broncos' victory over the Falcons on Sunday. LaDainian Tomlinson led the team in both rushing and receiving, garnering 100 total yards and a score on 18 carries and three receptions.
