GALLERY: Raiders come up short in shootout with Steelers
The Raiders were in Pittsburgh looking to extend their winning streak at Heinz Field. But big Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers were standing in their way. Let's see how it went down in Week 9...
Raiders running back Latavius Murray broke a 44-yard run to open the game in the first quarter.
Michael Crabtree caught a 22-yard pass for a touchdown following Murray's run, putting the Raiders up 7-0 early on.
Adding onto their previous field goal, the Steelers engineered a drive that resulted in a DeAngelo Williams rushing touchdown. Pittsburgh then went for a two-point conversion, which was a successful pass to the flat to an uncovered Williams. The Steelers took an 11-7 lead over the visiting Raiders.
Wide open TD
Amari Cooper was left all alone in the end zone, and Derek Carr found him for a 15-yard touchdown. Oakland retook the lead, 14-11.
TD No. 2
The back-and-forth continues, as Steelers tailback DeAngelo Williams found the end zone for a second time Sunday. The score put Pittsburgh back on top, 18-14. An unanswered field goal on the following drive increased the Steelers' lead to 21-14.
Another lead change
Martavis Bryant caught a 14-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger, putting the Steelers up 28-21 in the fourth quarter.
Piling it on
The Steelers put together another successful drive that ended in a Jesse James touchdown, pushing Pittsburgh's lead to 35-21 with 9:32 remaining in the game.
Michael Crabtree ran a go-route from the slot and made a terrific catch over his shoulder on a beautifully thrown ball from Derek Carr. The score tied the game at 35-all, following Jamize Olawale's 19-yard TD rush on the drive before.
The Steelers drove down the field and finished the Raiders off with a Chris Boswell field goal with time winding down. Pittsburgh won 38-35 and snapped Oakland's two-game win streak.
